If you are open to the idea of choosing mediation as your divorce process, then you have reached the perfect place. Scott Levin exclusively works as an attorney mediator and thus never litigates for one party versus the other. San Diego Divorce Mediation 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 to divorce for decades.

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:
Parents often want what’s in the best interests of their children but disagree on exactly what that means when it comes to creating a specific plan for where their children will live and with whom and on what days. We are parents ourselves and we believe that caring for the well-being of children is the most important part of the divorce process. 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.

Mediation gives each parent an opportunity to openly communicate and air their concerns in a safe, respectful and confidential environment. Communication about your concerns and fears and goals with respect to your children is the best way to create a customized child custody plan that fits your family and your children’s needs.

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 the division of assets and debts that works best for 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 San Diego family law attorneys and mediators will help you contemplate how decisions will be made concerning:
◘ Health
◘ Education
◘ Religion
◘ Extracurricular Activities
◘ Special Needs
◘ Relocation
◘ Other issues concerning your child
