Divorce doesn’t always have to be a painful, long and expensive process. If you and your spouse are getting divorced, try an easier way that takes less time and less money while still leading each of you to be more satisfied with the process. Consider divorce mediation instead and get the best possible outcome for everyone through working with your spouse to settle your divorce case.
Divorce mediation involves hiring a divorce mediator in Pleasant Hill, California to guide you and your spouse through the process of coming up with a settlement in your divorce. Everything from spousal support to the division of marital property to child visitation can be settled without having to have that part of your case heard in front of the judge, but rather would be decided on together with your spouse. Rather than having thousands in attorneys’ fees, you and your spouse will come to a settlement that deals with most, if not all of the issues in your divorce in a much shorter amount of time.
Besides the time and legal fees savings you would get from your divorce, you can also feel more satisfied with a settlement agreement that you reached with your spouse in mediation. When a judge hears your case, someone who is a stranger will be deciding your divorce issues. Because of this, the chance of having one or even both spouses, think that they were treated unfairly goes up. In mediation, the mediator does not make decisions in the case but instead offers guidance to both spouses on coming up with a solution to their dispute on their own. Because of this, mediation can lead to solutions that work much better for everyone involved.
