How Does Divorce Mediation Work in Orange County?

During mediation, a couple meets with a mediator - who acts as an impartial third party - to negotiate terms for the dissolution of their marriage. How many times parties meet with a mediator depends on the circumstances of the case. In a complex divorce where the couple shares valuable assets, have commingled property, and has children together, multiple meetings may be necessary. In a more straightforward divorce where the couple already has a marital agreement dictating how they intend to divide property, don't share children, etc., mediation can resolve in as little as a single meeting.

During mediation, parties collaborate to decide how they want to handle the following issues:

If the mediation process is successful and the spouses negotiate equitable terms for the above processes, they can then draft an agreement detailing those terms with the help of their lawyers and the mediator. Finally, they can present that agreement to a county court. If a judge approves the agreement, they'll sign it and issue a decree finalizing the divorce.

Mediation has several benefits for Californians:

  • You get to decide the outcome of your case, instead of relying on a judge;
  • The collaborative nature of mediation often makes the process more amicable than handling a divorce in court;
  • Mediation is typically faster than litigating a divorce, enabling you to save time and money on the dissolution of your marriage.
