Mediation

California Mediation Divorce Lawyer

For those couples who would like to attempt to reach an amicable divorce based on mediation dealing with the issues of property division, child support and child custody, mediation may be an option for you. The idea is that both parties sit down with a mediator and work out their issues in an attempt to avoid going to court and litigating, which is often an expensive process.

mediationIf you feel you may be able to work out various issues with your spouse, we would be happy to schedule a consultation with you so you may learn more about the benefits of mediation as a less adversarial approach to divorce. This process is a real benefit for couples to settle their divorce outside of court. Give us a call to discuss the pros and cons of mediation as a means to a workable divorce settlement that will cover all custody and financial issues.

Input from experts such as business valuation professionals and forensic accountants may be an important part of this process. Once the mediation process is started, it is often most beneficial financially for you to stay the course until you have worked out your difficult issues.

Mediation is not for everyone. Based on the circumstances of each case, some divorce cases require aggressive litigation — as is the case when one spouse or another is hiding assets or is the target of a criminal investigation. Contact The Maggio Law Firm by phone or e-mail to schedule a consultation and explore the concept of mediation, an approach that might be appropriate for you and your spouse as an alternative to divorce litigation.
