When you got married you believed that everything would work out and you would both stay together forever. Unfortunately, it just hasn’t worked out that way and now you are dreading the idea of going to court for a long, drawn-out and expensive divorce.

It’s true that many divorces litigated in court take months, or even years, and are very stressful and costly. If children are involved, 30 years of research points to the same stubborn truth – kids suffer emotionally from their parents’ divorce. What if you could minimize the trauma by moving on in a way that is not bitter, doesn’t take months or years and won’t cost you your life’s savings?

If you are open to getting a divorce without the need to go to court and “fight it out”, then you have reached the perfect place. Mediation San Diego has been working with couples to end their marriages on their terms and in less time and less expense than if they were to go to court. You can get out of a marriage that you don’t want to be in and end your marriage, provide for your children and create parenting and visitation plans that work so that you can leave your spouse without losing all of your savings and assets in a costly legal battle.

Child Support:
How much a person pays in child support depends principally on how many children there are, and how much money each parent earns. Because Child Support is governed by statutory guidelines, parents can often quickly come to an agreement on a plan. It can get more complicated when incomes fluctuate or when unique circumstances are present.

Mediation is well suited to resolve child support disputes, whether they are simple or complex. Circumstances often change as children get older and mediation has also proven to be very well suited to resolve child support modifications. In all circumstances, parents can enter into private agreements tailored to their particular circumstances and by controlling the process, it’s possible to agree to provide for child support that is higher or lower than what a judge would order in a litigated divorce.

Child Custody & Visitation:
Creating a parenting and visitation schedule can be tough. While they almost always want what is best, it’s not irregular for parents to disagree on plans for their children. It can be challenging to go from seeing your child every day at home, to seeing your child on certain days and times and creating a new home and a new space for them, and for yourself.

As an experienced San Diego family law attorney and trained mediator, Scott Levin, CDFA can facilitate and encourage parents to agree on parenting plans and long term goals that satisfy the best interests of their children. Mediation is confidential and parents are given an opportunity to open communication and air their concerns in a safe and private environment.

Property Division:
There is no magical formula for dividing property acquired by the parties during their marriage. It isn’t surprising that the division of parties’ community assets is one of the most significant and difficult issues in dissolving a marriage or domestic partnership.

In Mediation, you and your spouse make all the decisions that keep you both in control of your divorce or legal separation. So rather than lawyers and judges dictating your property division to you, in mediation you are able to craft a tailor-made -make division that is agreeable to both parties.

Spousal Support:
Whenever there is a significant disparity in income and in earning potential, one spouse may need to support the other spouse. Such support comes by many names—alimony, maintenance, and spousal support. Litigating spousal support claims in the court system can very easily lead to costly and intrusive trials that entail extensive discovery including depositions, interrogatories, and forensic accounting.

Mediation once again allows the parties to control the outcome by tailoring the terms of their agreement. There are many common-sense and creative solutions that can be employed to solve support disputes that courts simply cannot order.

Parenting And Decision Making:
Whether you are married or not, at the time of separation you will need to consider how decisions will be made for your children. When parents learn to communicate and work together in the care of their children, the children are better off. Our team of experienced family law attorneys and trained mediators will help you contemplate how decisions will be made concerning:
◘ Health
◘ Education
◘ Religion
◘ Extracurricular Activities
◘ Special Needs
◘ Relocation
◘ Other issues concerning your child
