A HEALTHY DIVORCE – Fair, Private and Respectful
What is Divorce Mediation?

The prospect of ending your marriage can be devastating, but divorce proceedings don’t have to be traumatic. Divorce mediation is an affordable alternative to litigating in court for resolving all family law issues before, during, and after the divorce or legal separation. Both parties meet with a trained, impartial family law mediator to resolve issues in a confidential setting

Divorce Mediation is an Alternative Dispute Resolution process that strives to preserve the emotional and financial resources of the family while achieving an agreement that considers and respects the welfare of everyone in the family. The divorce mediation model provides divorcing parties the opportunity to problem solve in a private, confidential setting, with the help of their experts, to reach a creative settlement that meets the needs of their family.

As an experienced San Diego divorce mediation lawyer and trained neutral mediator, Scott Levin can help divorcing spouses file the necessary paperwork to start the divorce action, mediate contested issues, and prepare a Marital Settlement Agreement to finalize the divorce. If the divorce is already in progress, or if the parties have already retained counsel, parties can still save time and money by turning to mediation to complete the job.

Advantages of Mediation Over Litigation:
◘ Outcome is tailored to the individual clients
◘ Ample opportunity for discussion and resolution
◘ Confidential – nothing discussed during mediation can be released. No public record.
◘ You make the final decisions rather than a judge
◘ Private information is not discussed in a public setting
◘ There are no Court Appearances
◘ The process is informal
◘ Times are mutually convenient because they are set by the parties not the Court
◘ Minimizes the emotional costs by working cooperatively
◘ Teaches skills to resolve problems more easily going forward

The Mediator’s Role:
◘ The Mediator creates a cooperative environment where both parties feel safe to discuss issues openly and honestly.
◘ The Mediator stays neutral, listens, helps both parties stay focused, and explores the underlying interests while maintaining a balance of power.
