Same Sex Mediation : Divorce & Family Law Mediation for Same-Sex CouplesAt San Diego Divorce Mediation & Family Law, we will help you resolve your same-sex couple cohabitation, domestic partnership, divorce or custody issues in a sane, sensible and fair way at a reasonable cost.
Same-sex marriages are now legal in California and thus all of the provisions in the Family Code that apply to opposite-sex couples today apply equally to same-sex couples upon marriage and divorce. However, unique considerations in family law for same-sex couples remain and that is why it’s so important to select professionals like those in our firm that stay current with this dynamic area of the law.
Same Sex Mediation & Dissolution
Many opposite-sex couples are able to avoid divorce litigation in a courtroom thanks to the help of same-sex mediation. Thankfully, this option is now also available for same-sex couples who are seeking a dissolution of their marriage. Divorce mediation, while entirely voluntary, allows two people to end their partnership and divide assets without ever appearing before a judge in family court.
Mediation is an especially good option for former partners who are seeking an amicable resolution to their union. It can also work well despite ill feelings or bitterness that exists between the two spouses. The goal in mediation is to reach an agreement that is beneficial to both parties through discussion and negotiation. The process is often significantly faster and less expensive than litigation which makes the emotional nature of divorce less taxing for all parties concerned.
