Top 10 Reasons to Choose Mediation
Settle Out of Court by Choosing Mediation for Your Divorce
Alternative Divorce Solutions’ Certified mediators know that going through a divorce can be overwhelming and stressful, as well as cost you time and money. However, your separation process doesn’t have to cause additional anxiety. At A.D.S., we are committed to keeping the decision in your hands so you can make an empowering and sensible choice without any intervention from a judge.
Call 949-368-2121 to speak with a mediation coordinator to schedule a free one hour consultation.
1. You are in Control
You control the pace of the process and avoid court delays. You control your agreements rather than a judge who doesn’t know you. We will guide you both every step of the way as you and your spouse can create customized plans that best meet your unique needs.
2. It Is Tailored to Your Needs
A.D.S. Certified Mediators do not try to fit a “square peg into a round hole.” We work closely with you to assist you in creating a custom agreement.
3. It Is Better for You Emotionally
Mediation is a cooperative solution. Alternative Divorce Solutions’ Certified Mediators 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
5. It is 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 of 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
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 and work together towards this common goal. Mediation is confidential; therefore, whatever is said in the room, stays in the room.
8. It Protects Your Children
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 meetings. 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
A.D.S. offers a one-time, flat fee for your mediation services which includes your meetings, your revisions process, communication with our team, and paperwork preparation. Our goal is to help manage the uncertainty you are already feeling by explaining our flat fee up front. With a litigated divorce, you never know how much it will cost you in the end.

“First and foremost, I found that I had a lot to learn about the divorce mediation process. I did not exactly know what the role of the mediator was or if we would still have to go to Court.”
– Donald B.
“I was so stressed out before I went to ADS. Once I got there Lani sat with me and my husband and explained the whole mediation process. After I left I knew exactly what to expect and ADS lived up to my expectations.”
