Couples who cannot settle contested issues are more likely to experience a long, drawn-out divorce process. Divorce mediation may allow for a less stressful dissolution of your marriage. At Woodman-Garcia-Sepulveda Law, we offer decades of mediation experience to help you move on to the next chapter of your life.
What Is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation involves working with a trained mediator to resolve contested issues without appearing in court. Couples who go through mediation often end their marriage on respectful terms and with less of a hassle compared to a divorce trial.
The mediator is a neutral third party, instead of a lawyer retained by one party. The goal is to come up with an arrangement that both parties can agree to. Mediation encourages open communication, making it easier to find solutions to disagreements. Some of the most common points of contention during divorce include:
- Child custody and support
- Spousal support
- Property division
During mediation, we outline all the issues that you and your spouse struggle to agree on. We allow both sides to state their position and offer suggestions to solve potential impasses.
