Making Positive Decisions: Divorce Mediation and Its Benefits

Many people think that, when it comes to divorce, nobody gets what they want. This isn’t always the case, and divorce doesn’t always have to be ugly. You can make positive decisions and work past a variety of issues with your spouse if you are willing to communicate during this already-difficult time. What is divorce mediation and what are its many benefits?

The Ins and Outs of Mediation

divorce mediationMediation is a type of alternative dispute resolution that has been used for thousands of years. In divorce, somebody called a divorce mediator will engage you and your spouse in a way that will lead to discussions that can solve a variety of issues. Through working together, you will be able to create a parenting plan that works for custody, establish how to financially support the children, divide your assets, and many other issues that crop up during the divorce process.

Benefits of Divorce Mediation

There are many benefits of divorce mediation. Here are just a few of the aspects that you will find:

  • Mediation puts your children first, as they will feel as if they have extra time to enjoy themselves and time with their parents rather than back-and-forth fighting that comes with the divorce court process.
  • Mediation is peaceful for both parties, which means that you won’t have lingering stress hanging overhead.
  • Mediation is not as time-consuming, so you can reach a ‘verdict’ faster as you and your spouse come to an agreement.
  • The process is much more cost-effective.
  • You will find that there is fairness in the process because nobody loses. You both get to achieve your goals, rather than have a judge decide something for you that doesn’t work for you.
  • There is a higher rate of compliance, which means that you and your spouse are more likely to abide by what has been laid out for you.
  • You will reach practical agreements.

Do you think that divorce mediation is for you? It sure sounds like a better process than having to spend thousands of dollars to appear in front of a judge who will tell you what to do. If you want to get started on this process, you should speak with an attorney immediately about your case. At the Law Office of Soheila Azizi & Associates, we want to help so give us a call today.

Beyond impressed! I had been self represented through years of family law and child support court hearings and was so hesitant to hire an attorney out of fear and trusting that they would appropriately represent myself and child. After tons of research I contacted Ms. Azizi. I immediately was greeted by Lorenzo, the Office Administrator, who made me feel so welcomed and comfortable. He assisted in making communication seamless and effortless and walked me through each step of the process. Ms. Azizi heard my concerns and was extremely sensitive to the matter of FAMILY. The team did an amazing job with discovery and building a strong case that gave me confidence and I was successful in coming to an agreement with the other party, in what has yet to have been the easiest hearing of all, thanks to them. Ms. Azizi settled my case after years of stress and agony. I am grateful for finding the team and Ms. Azizi and definitely recommend them for any of your legal needs!

This law firm is the best! They have helped me so much with my Divorce and Criminal cases and I really wouldn't know what to do if I didn't have them to represent me. Lorenzo and Ro are awesome and are there to help at all times. My attorney was Mr.Edmondson and he has been amazing. This law firm is truly great and I will never go to any other one. Their responses are quick and will answer any questions you might have.

Seven stars. I had planned to put up my reviews after my final judgment but after the first hearing, couldn't wait, and I would write this whatever the outcome of my difficult case. Soheila was simply amazing in her arguments and strategy before the judge. I felt so taken care of. I chose her for her near-30 years of experience as an attorney, the depth and strength I observed in one who had weathered hardship through her many accomplishments, her compassion, and her smarts. I can't imagine what other attorney would have Zoomed with me even in sickness to help prepare me for a legal session. And I later saw how keen she'd been in her advice. I've been deeply touched watching Soheila and her paralegal Lynda Walker fight for my child as if he were their own. They in particular have treated me with great humanity - day and night from what I experienced at my former attorney's. Lynda is a gem, on her toes, flexible, hard-working, committed to each client, humble, and sweet. She has slaved over my case, doing much of the writing, watchful of me on paper and in person, guiding me gently while encouraging me to use my voice. The staff, including the office administrator Lorenzo and Linda C, is caring, respectful, and conscientious. A band of angels.
