Helping Woodland Hills And Newport Beach Residents With Divorce Mediation

The idea of working together with your spouse during divorce may be unappealing. Divorce is often rife with emotion, even if there is a good reason behind it. If you are considering divorce, however, it is important to think about what you want out of the process. It is easy to forget that your approach to divorce can have a significant impact on the final agreement and your life during and after the process.

For couples separating with the shared goal of proceeding through the divorce as quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible, divorce mediation is a positive option. At Thomas Law Offices, we have guided many divorcing parties in and around Woodland Hills, California, through mediation. We can help you and your spouse work toward a resolution that is fair, enforceable and comprehensive.

The Benefits Of Mediation

Mediation is a legal process that aims to keep the parties out of court. In mediation, the parties work together in an informal setting with the assistance of a neutral, third-party mediator who helps the parties reach an agreement. Mediation has numerous benefits:

  • It is often less expensive than litigation.
  • It can reduce conflict dramatically, allowing you to reach an agreement and move on.
  • It allows you and your spouse to set the terms of your divorce and child custody arrangement — not a judge who does not know you.

Other Avenues To Resolve Your Divorce

Along with mediation, we help clients resolve family law matters via other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods like arbitration. Alongside collaborative methods (which use professionals from many disciplines such as therapists and accountants who work together to help you resolve your matter) and the use of conciliation courts, we will help you decide which resolution method is right for you.
