Why mediation can be an option in divorce

In the event that a divorcing couple have issues communicating, they may believe that that the only way to end the marriage is in court. However, it is possible for California couples to use mediation as an alternative to litigation. It can be an especially effective tool for those who have a lot of assets and need time to decide what happens to them.

How to keep divorce costs to a minimum

California residents who get divorced could spend thousands of dollars on legal fees and other costs. However, there are ways that they can keep costs to a minimum when ending their marriage. For instance, picking the right lawyer can make it easier to get through the process in a timely manner. Choosing to work with a junior attorney or a paralegal instead of a senior partner can also reduce the cost.

Divorce mediation can help resolve child custody issues

Parents in California headed for divorce may be concerned about how to minimize the effects of the split on their children. This is especially true when dealing with some of the more complex matters that accompany a divorce like child custody issues. When both parents want the maximum time with their children, custody concerns can be difficult to resolve. However, mutual dedication to a positive outcome for their children can help many divorcing parents work together to develop a parenting plan that sets the foundation for their co-parenting relationship.

Divorce mediation can help couples split peacefully

When a couple in California decides to end their marriage, a legal process is necessary to conclude the divorce. However, many couples wish to reach a solution that does not require litigation with its attendant expense and adversarial approach. Instead, these couples can opt to make use of divorce mediation in order to determine the terms of their separation and address the necessary issues. Divorce mediation involves the use of a third-party, impartial mediator to help resolve disputes and reach a mutually acceptable agreement.

Divorce strategies for successful co-parenting

Divorce is common in California and other states. When children are involved, separation can involve significant emotional stress and negotiation about parenting plans. It is important for divorcing couples to consider how to best co-parent their children after the relationship has ended.

How to make a divorce easier

California residents may feel uneasy about the financial ramifications of their divorce. However, there are ways to keep costs to a minimum when ending a marriage. For instance, it may be possible to seek out mediation instead of going to court. On average, the process costs between $5,000 and $9,000, which is less expensive than opting for litigation in most cases. Mediation may also be ideal because it focuses on an equitable split of marital property.

Mediation can help couples form prenuptial agreements

Many California couples are heading for marriage at a more advanced age than in the past. This means that both parties are often coming to the marriage with established careers, significant assets, investment funds or even self-owned businesses. While couples planning for marriage seldom like to consider planning for divorce at the same time, a prenuptial agreement can be an important step for two-career couples with significant assets and liabilities among them.

Tips for co-parenting in difficult circumstances

California parents who are divorced may struggle in co-parenting with a difficult ex. There may be a number of reasons for this. In some cases, it is related to a parent's turmoil over the divorce. If the conflict is not over issues as serious as addiction or abuse and is mostly between the parents, there might be ways to smooth over the situation.
