San Bernardino Family Law Mediation
Divorce and family law cases are often painted as a heated battle that drags on
for months. Spouses can't agree on any issues and will go to any lengths
to get what they want. Is this really how divorce has to go? James D.
Madden, Attorney at Law doesn’t think so. There are alternatives
to traditional divorce litigation that can allow a couple to dissolve
their marriage in a peaceful and amicable manner. Mediation is one of
the most popular and effective alternatives.

What Happens in the Mediation Process?
Mediation helps spouses come to a favorable agreement that suits both sides.
There is usually an initial appointment, where both spouses will share
their goals and desired outcome for the divorce. The meditator will be
present to keep the peace between the couple. Their role is to make sure
all matters are handled fairly.
Spouses will need to create an agreement that addresses following issues:
Once they have done this, the mediator will review it to ensure it honors
both parties and may draft a document for court approval. Not only does
mediation allow a couple to resolve their issues in a peaceful setting,
but it also saves them time and money by avoiding costly divorce litigation.
It is important to note, however, that mediation will not be right for
everyone. If a couple cannot come to an agreement on issues or there is
a history of abuse or manipulation, dissolving a marriage before a judge
may be more beneficial.
