Top 10 reasons to Choose Mediation:
1. You get to be in control.
Mediation works on your timeline. You do not have to depend on a judge to control the timeline or outcome of your divorce. With the assistance of a trained attorney-mediator, you and your spouse can create a customized plan for your future on your terms.
2. It is tailored to your needs.
In mediation, you decide what type of agreement will suit your needs. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, we do not try to fit a "square peg into a round hole." We work closely with you, and often your trusted advisers (accountants, financial planners, family therapists) to assist you in creating a custom agreement. You do not have to have a judge who does not know you make decisions for your life.
3. It is better for you emotionally.
Mediation is a cooperative solution. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, we guide your discussions so they are respectful and productive. Handling conflict constructively leaves you feeling more at ease about the difficulties you are experiencing. You don't have to "get mean" or play games like you might feel compelled to do in a litigated divorce.
4. There is no need for a power struggle.
In mediation, both parties are on an equal playing field. With the guidance of the mediator, both people are able to voice their concerns and make informed choices for themselves. Because both people are receiving the same information at the same time, the power differential that can occur in litigation is eliminated.
5. It can be less stressful.
When two people are willing to work together, share the needed information openly, and come to a solution, it is less stressful for everyone involved. The media portrayal and horror stories about divorce are not the only way. Having less stress frees up your energy to deal with the other changes that are going on in your life. You deserve to make a smooth transition.
6. You aren't alone.
If during the mediation, you end up needing more support, we have a team of experts to join your support system. We work with counselors, child experts, real estate agents, estate planners and others to help support you.
7. It is a private process.
In mediation, you will be reminded that although you cannot change the past, you can create a good outcome for your future. There is no need to "air dirty laundry" or harm the other person's reputation in court. Instead, in mediation, you will work together towards a common goal. Mediation is confidential; therefore, whatever is said in the room, stays in the room.
8. It can protect your children.
In mediation, we will work with you to develop a parenting plan. Children no longer have to be a pawn in the game of divorce. Mediation is proven to be better for children and their relationship with their parents. In team mediation, we also have the option to work with a parenting coach who can assist you in creating the best parenting plan for your children. No intrusive court evaluations are needed and your family is left as whole as possible.
9. It will save you time.
You get to decide together how long it will take to settle your case. The timeline will depend on your follow through with paperwork and your flexibility in working together during our sessions. At Alternative Divorce Solutions, it is possible that your case can be settled as early as one month. However, CA statutory timelines will still apply. Ask your mediator about the timeline for your case.
In a litigated divorce, the process can be dragged out for many months or years.
10. It will save you money.
Our firm charges a one-time, flat fee for your mediation. Your fee will be all inclusive of filing fees, court costs, your mediation appointments, communication with our team, and paperwork preparation. Our goal is to help manage the uncertainty you are already feeling by setting your expectations from the beginning. With a litigated divorce, you never know how much it will cost you in the end.
