Divorce mediation is a process in which your mediator acts as a neutral third party. The divorce mediator will help you reach a settlement in your legal issues. The role of divorce mediators is to guide your discussion, explore settlement alternatives and resolve difficult conflicts.
Together you and your spouse will meet with a divorce mediator in private mediation sessions. You will exchange necessary information and ideas about various ways to settle your differences. The family law mediator will inform you of the law as it pertains to your situation, including property division and the calculation of child and spousal support. This process allows you and your spouse to make the decisions together, rather than attorneys arguing your case in court before a judge.
A family law mediator is a licensed California attorney, however in the role of mediator he/she is not acting as an attorney for either party nor is he/she acting as an attorney for both parties. Instead, it is his/her role as mediator to provide each party, in the presence of the other, with the information necessary to allow them to make informed decisions regarding legal issues and Sacramento family law.
We prepare all the court documents you will need, including but not limited to: Petition, Summons, Settlement Agreement, Qualified Domestic Relations Order and Stipulated Court Order. You will be encouraged to seek an independent attorney for consultation, advice or further information if there are complex issues, such as tax considerations, valuation problems, conflict impasse or for review of legal agreements.
There is no retainer required in mediation in divorce cases. Family law divorce mediation fees are charged at the mediator’s hourly rate. Legal documents are charged on a flat fee basis. Unlike paying a retainer to an attorney, mediation fees are charged as services are used. Contact our office to schedule an initial consultation at a reduced fee, to find out if mediation is right for you.
