Orange County Mediation Attorneys Helping Former Spouses End Their Marriage Amicably
Going through a divorce can be a tough time for you and your family. You will experience all kinds of emotions, from sadness to anger to fear and even hatred. These emotions can lead to making rash decisions in a time when you need to be as level-headed as possible.
This is where a mediator comes in. At Sarieh Law Offices, our mediators can help all parties involved come to an agreement that adheres to the wishes of all parties involved.
Because we have helped countless clients in the past with their mediation needs, we have received many questions. Here are some of the most common questions we have been asked?
- What is mediation?
- Are there benefits to mediation?
- What should you expect at a mediation hearing?
What Is Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a process that involves a divorcing couple who wish to amicably end their marriage and work together to make decisions. These decisions can include how assets and property are divided, child custody, child support, and more.
Are There Benefits To Mediation?
Cost – Mediation tends to cost less than a typical divorce. This is because, during a divorce, each party has to hire their own lawyers and trials last longer resulting in higher costs for all.
More Control – Mediation gives each party the ability to have more control over the decisions made in their case. Typically, divorcing couples who choose to go through mediation will agree to terms that are beneficial to both parties.
More Discretion – Anything that is said during a mediation hearing is confidential and can’t be used in any subsequent lawsuits, with an exception of anything that involves criminal activity.
Quicker Process – A divorce can drag on for months, even years. By working together in the mediation process, divorcing couples can avoid lengthy court proceedings and finalize their divorce much quicker.
What Happens During The Mediation Process?
During the mediation process, you and your former spouse will work together with a highly skilled and trained professional mediator. This mediator will act as a neutral party who will guide you through the process. The best part about the mediation process is that you have control over any decisions that need to be made.
Sometimes it can be beneficial to have a third party present who has no interest in the matter and can help the former couple focus on what is most important. With the proper guidance and legal expertise that Sarieh Law Offices provides, you can ensure that your needs will not only be communicated but that the best interests of you and your family are protected as well.
