Using mediation to end a marriage

Divorce is never easy for California couples, even if both parties are determined to end their marriage amicably. For those who do not wish to go before a judge, mediation may be a viable option.

Working with a skilled mediator provides numerous advantages for estranged couples who are looking to end their marriage quickly in an uncontested divorce. The impartial third party's sole purpose is to help the couple work together towards a resolution. Mediation allows them to remain in control of the process and to define their own settlement terms. This process is also more flexible, allowing estranged spouses to schedule their own sessions when it is convenient for them to do so. A mediator can also keep the process simpler and more sensitive to the needs of any children the couple may have, meaning they may not have to interact with the court.

The main advantage, however, is that both parties are more likely to be happy with the outcome of the divorce following mediation. This is because they will have to resolve any potential disputes over child custody arrangements, parental time and division of property. If both parties find that they can simply not agree enough to reach a settlement, going to court is always an available option.

Although getting a divorce can be an emotional and difficult event, there are ways that couples can make their divorce as painlessly as possible. Divorce mediation is one way if they can work together. However, mediation is not recommended if one spouse has a history of domestic abuse. In these types of cases, a family law attorney may recommend litigation to help keep the divorce process on track.
