Understand the mediation process

When California couples realize divorce is in their future, they may want to keep the process amicable, especially if they have children. A previous blog discussed the reasons why mediation may or may not be good for a couple. This blog will explain the mediation process so people can determine if this is a good option for them.

Can mediation help me after my divorce is over?

Like many Californians going through a divorce, you might have gone the litigation route, having a judge make the final say regarding property division, child custody and other matters. Or, you and your spouse may have opted for an amicable divorce instead through mediation, collaborative law or another uncontested method. Regardless of your past experiences with your divorce, you might wonder what you can do if conflicts with your ex continue after your divorce was finalized.

Is an uncontested divorce for me?

Your friends and family members, as well as the information you have learned from this blog, may have convinced you an amicable divorce is the best way to end your marriage. However, you and other Californians should understand that the chances of success with an uncontested divorce depend on numerous factors.

Understanding amicable divorce

At the Law Office of Lily L. Huang in California, we know that more and more of today’s couples prefer to end their marriages amicably rather than via a traditional litigated divorce. If you and your spouse fit that description, you should realize that you have two options: a mediated divorce and a collaborative divorce.

What is uncontested divorce?

It is hard to end a marriage. When you walked down the aisle, maybe you were in heels that echoed through the cathedral hall with every step or perhaps you walked barefooted with toes sunken into the sands of a California beach. Either way, the day was dreamy, and you hoped to make it work "until death do us part."

What is collaborative divorce?

If you are a California resident contemplating divorce, you and your spouse, despite your differences, probably are dreading the prospect of an expensive contentious court battle. If you would prefer a more amicable approach, a collaborative divorce may be just what you are looking for.

How can I make my divorce amicable?

Divorces, unfortunately, do not always bring out the best in California couples. Anger, fear and grief are common when a marriage is in the process of being dissolved. Sometimes these emotions make the divorce a contentious process for all involved. However, it does not have to be this way. The American Psychological Association spells out strategies that couples can use to reach a more amicable divorce.
