The Advantages of Divorce Mediation

Predictable outcomes

Working one-on-one with your spouse means that you will not involve a court in the decisions that will affect your property, finances, and relationship with your children. In general, this provides you with greater flexibility in creating an agreement suited to your needs. When a court becomes involved, you face a greater risk that decisions will not fall in your favor.

Lower expense

Litigation is significantly more costly than mediation. Many people who begin their case in the courtroom return to mediation because they recognize the mounting expense as well as the time away from work and other problems it can cause.

Faster decisions

The litigation process can last months, and this time increases with every battle that attorneys and clients wage in the courtroom. Divorce Mediation between two willing parties can resolve these concerns in a fraction of the time.

Preserved relationships

When a judge makes decisions, attorneys must demonstrate why their client is in the right and the other party is in the wrong. You face the possibility of destroying your relationship with your spouse and potentially harming your relationship with your children when litigation becomes acrimonious and hurtful. Divorce Mediation is more cooperative and promotes better post-marital relationships.

Choosing  Divorce Mediation

Though divorce mediation offers these advantages, settlement is not always possible. In some cases, the other party is unwilling to come to a fair resolution or there are certain issues on which you and your spouse cannot compromise.

As a Los Angeles divorce mediation lawyer, Charles M. Green can advise you when to pursue mediation and when settlement may not be an option. If litigation is the right course, he will aggressively represent you in court.

    I have been separated since 12/2014- I moved from nyc to la with my son who is 7. I need to divorce my ex who lives in minneapolis MN. He will agree to the divorce. We do not share anything minus my son. he never see him, never provide for him and never pay anything.

    The ex is an addict- Fully disabled PTSD, never worked, alcoholic, drug user and has been arrested in MN for domestic abuse.
    He is very erratic, unstable . very unhealthy – I need to have full custody . He can have visitation but thats about it- he gets about 3k per month on full disability but never pay a penny for the kid. not asking for much just 250/500 per month. but i do not want to deal with him – i need someone to take care of filing, serving and let see if he answer back and gets this done. can you help? hw much ? can i pay every month?
