Divorce Mediation in California

Divorce can cause a lot of stress and unnecessary frustration. Emotions run high in any family law case and being forced to distribute property or arrests and asked to restart a life that you invested so much time and energy into can create a lot of complications. One of the best options is to mediate. Divorce mediation is an option for every divorcing couple, but could be particularly beneficial to those that are on speaking or "good terms" and those that can agree upon the majority of their divisions and terms of separation.

Considering mediation? Call upon Cutter & Lax today! Attorney Matthew Lax is proud to have been board certified in family law by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization.

Mediation vs. Litigation

In deciding to mediate your divorce, you will be able to retain control of the majority of the divorce process and reduce greatly legal fees. Mediation also allows you the opportunity to control most aspects of the divorce. Instead of dueling out finances and property division with two separate attorneys, couples can decide to mediate their divorces and be in control of their outcomes. In a divorce mediation case, the couple will meet several times, the meetings sometimes lasting several hours. These meetings are mediated by an attorney who will facilitate the conversations and draft a final divorce decree. You can almost completely avoid court if you work with an experienced divorce mediator.

Another important thing to remember about divorce mediation is that not only can assets and property division be mediated, but you can also discuss in detail custody and support. Child custody and visitation will be mediated and kept fair, with the best interests of the child and the spouse kept in mind. By using mediation instead of court trials, you can control the outcome of your case and be satisfied with the final divorce decree, reducing the risk of having to make modifications in the future. It is important that if you are considering divorce and mediation as an option for divorce, that you work with Cutter & Lax today.

Why choose divorce mediation?

The majority of divorces in California are uncontested, meaning the parties agree on all divorce terms out of the courtroom.
