There are so many benefits to divorce mediation, and we want you and your family to experience these benefits. Wondering about what to expect in divorce mediation? We at Alternative Divorce Solutions are ready to help you make the first step.
Mediation allows you and your spouse to make crucial decisions about your divorce and the future of your family, rather than having to rely on the ruling of an impartial judge who may not understand the various complexities of your unique situation.
It is no secret that divorce can be an incredibly emotional process for every member of the family. This is especially true for young children witnessing the separation of their parents. Without careful consideration and thoughtful planning, even the most good-natured of couples can begin to make rash decisions due to feelings of friction, resentment, or pride. Suddenly, couples could find themselves under the scrutiny of California’s Family Courts or forced to bow to the discretion of a judge.
Unlike litigation, mediation leaves the decision-making completely up to you and your spouse. Your trained attorney-mediator will give you information and guidance throughout the process to make sure you and your spouse are able to make informed decisions about your future. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, we like helping our clients reach “win-win” resolutions for everyone involved, especially young children.

What to Expect During the Mediation Process
Mediation is a process where you and your spouse sit down with a highly trained and fully licensed professional mediator. Your mediator will be considered a neutral party who can guide the mediation process and can typically let the process unfold organically based on your situation. As your mediator, we can be trusted to be a fully neutral party but still provide relevant information, structure, and options as your mediation process develops.
Sometimes it helps to involve a third party that has no interest in the matter to help distinguish what is important, to communicate during moments of conflict, and to remind both parties of what needs to be done. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, we pride ourselves on doing all of this while also creating a safe space where our clients can feel comfortable having open, honest, and truthful dialogue amongst one another. Communication is one of the most essential factors to reaching a successful divorce.
