Understanding the Divorce Mediation Process in California

Divorce mediation in California is when a couple sits down with a neutral attorney trained and experienced in mediation.

The mediator helps the couple learn about their options regarding property, children, support, and money issues.

The mediator remains neutral and doesn't "hear each side" to make their case and make a ruling. The mediator does not tell you or your partner what to do or how to resolve the issue. They may provide suggestions to enable each party to construct the best solutions for their case.

Key Areas Addressed in Family Law Mediation:

In matters of child custody, California requires couples to go through custody mediation if minor children are involved, and parents cannot come to a parenting plan agreement by the time they file for divorce.

Unlike courtroom processes, mediation enables the parties involved to resolve their matters in a way that allows minimal stress and allows the divorcing spouses to communicate openly in a safe environment. Additionally, it can often be more cost-effective than going to a trial.

Top Benefits of Choosing Divorce Mediation

Advantages of Mediation Process for Divorce in California:

  • Allows you to stay out of the courtroom
  • Less time-consuming
  • More cost-effective
  • Spouses are able to set their own terms instead of a judge deciding for them
  • Protects parent-child relationships
  • Allows for privacy
  • Creates a safe environment for all parties

Divorce mediation is the voluntary process during which trained professionals guide divorcing spouses through the process of dissolving their marriage. Ultimately, divorce mediation allows for the marriage to be dissolved without the need for divorcing couples to go to court.

When it comes to establishing the terms of a divorce, things can get messy. This is where mediator for divorce comes in—it serves as an alternative form of dispute resolution. Rather than spending an excessive amount of time, money, and energy in court, spouses are able to peacefully work through the terms of their divorce.

Limitations of Divorce Mediation: When It May Not Be Suitable

In some cases, the pros and cons of divorce mediation are null and void because it is not an option given the circumstances of the divorce proceedings.

Scenarios Where Mediation May Not Be Advisable

  • There is little to no communication between spouses

  • One spouse does not want the divorce
