When you have decided to get a divorce, consider mediation as an option for expediting the process and avoiding the stress and embarrassment of courtroom litigation. While some couples are able to have an uncontested divorce, coming to agreements on all the major issues, and others need the intervention of a judge in a contested divorce, mediation is a route for those who would benefit from the presence of a third party to facilitate communication and negotiation. By utilizing the skill and legal knowledge of an experienced Glendale divorce attorney, you may be able to achieve a swift resolution to all aspects of your divorce, including property division, child custody, visitation, and spousal support or alimony.
These topics and others can usually be successfully addressed in mediation, provided that both parties are willing to meet and work together. Your attorney can provide constructive suggestions for solving various problems which could arise surrounding topics such as visitation schedules, as well as assisting you in drafting the agreements which you will bring to the court at your hearing. Mediation can be a cost-effective solution for your divorce proceedings, allowing you and your former spouse to work out a settlement in a private and orderly manner. It is an especially attractive option when the divorce involves children and the parents are intent on minimizing the duration and upset of the experience.
