Caring & Dedicated During Your Time of Need

Choosing to get a divorce can result in one of the most emotional and overwhelming times in a person’s life. Divorce rarely impacts just the separating couple; rather, it affects every member of the family.

Mediation helps parents protect their children from the harmful effects of a litigated divorce.

At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our divorce mediators in California pride themselves on helping couples find a more dignified and peaceful process.

Why Mediation is the Preferred Process?

Mediation is the preferred process because your voices are heard and reflected in your final agreements. You maintain control of decision-making rather than putting it in the hands of a judge. It puts children first and allows parents to work together.
