Advantages of Mediation in Divorce

Divorce or legal separation can be a very difficult process for the entire family. The typical adversarial divorce can easily generate more hard feelings between the two soon-to-be ex-spouses. Property valuation and division of debts, child custody and visitation and spousal support or separate maintenance issues are the most common areas of where disputes can take place. Going to trial over disputed matters is expensive, simply puts your fate in the hands of the court, and can mean neither of you are happy with the outcome. Even a couple who are determined to work out their own agreements can come up against a difference of opinion which seems impossible to resolve. An experiencedVentura divorce attorney at our firm has found that mediation is a very useful tool to resolve issues.
