Mediation is an alternative to traditional adversarial court-based divorce and this is our specialty at San Diego Divorce Mediation & Family Law. Mediation can be used for your divorce or to modify an existing divorce order such as child custody or spousal support that may need to be adjusted given new circumstances. The parties work with our neutral third party mediator attorneys to negotiate a mutually agreeable settlement to avoid the unnecessary stress, conflict, delays and expense of traditional litigation. Mediation allows both spouses to speak with a neutral attorney at the same time in order to resolve any disputed issues and move toward mutual agreement and complete the divorce process. Mediation can cover a wide range of issues, and it can be done in person, on zoom or by telephone. At the end of the mediation process, our mediating attorney will draft your agreement which the parties then sign and the Court will review and approve it. Once the Court has approved the agreement, it is a Court order that both parties must abide by. Mediation allows each party to have control over the outcome of the case rather than requesting a Judge to make orders in their case.
