Collaboration and Mediation Archives

On the mediation process and how it helps

When a couple decides that it is time to divorce, they have a decision to make about what process they will use to complete the divorce. One option is litigation. Litigation does not mean that a couple cannot come to a settlement, but the hard things that parties say about each other and write about each other in court documents can create hurt feelings and make coming to an agreement more difficult.

What to do before seeking court intervention

If your child seems preoccupied and antsy over the last week, it's probably because he or she knows that the end of the school year is near. Indeed, summer vacation is the best part of the year for some kids.  After all, not having to go to school is a type of freedom that comes around only once per year (like Christmas.) But for each day a child is out of school, a parent may be wondering how to keep their children occupied.

Collaborative divorce and mediation are effective options for divorce

Going through divorce does not necessarily have to be the prolonged fight that many California residents may expect it to be. In fact, many individuals who feel that they can proceed in a civil manner could potentially take advantage of various methods to dissolve a marriage with as little conflict as possible, such as through collaboration and mediation. Some parties may have only little information on collaboration, but this method could offer benefits.

Collaboration and mediation may benefit second divorce cases

Deciding to end a marriage is a relatively common situation in which many California residents find themselves. Some parties may even face this type of predicament if their second marriage does not work out. Though the idea of going through the related legal proceedings may seem daunting, this time around, individuals may wish to give due consideration to different divorce methods, including collaboration and mediation.

Consider mediation, even if you hate your ex

Too many people assume that divorce will inevitably be bitter and contentious. After all, when two people are divorcing, they often feel angry, sad, intimidated, guilty, betrayed and/or distrustful about each other. This can make it very difficult to imagine working together.

Could collaborative divorce work for you in California?

Whatever the reason may be for ending a marriage, there are many individuals who would like to approach their divorce as amicably as possible. Luckily, California residents who are able to continue to work together and are open to avoid as much conflict as possible may be able to utilize the collaborative divorce process. Because this is a non-adversarial approach that depends upon cooperation between the parties and commitment to the out-of-court resolution. It may not be for everyone. 

Mediation, Collaboration or Negotiation in California Divorce

Studies show that people going through a divorce are happier with the final orders when they developed and agreed upon them between themselves, as opposed to having orders imposed upon them by a judge. So what's the best option? Mediation, collaboration or negotiation in the litigation context?
