An Amicable Outcome in Your Case

Dealing with a divorce is never easy. Fortunately, mediating your divorce can provide a more amicable resolution while allowing you to reach agreements that are in the best interest of you and your family.

At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our Bakersfield Divorce Mediators help clients find their best path forward through divorce.

How Does Divorce Mediation Work?

Mediation enables parties to actively pursue their best interests while at the same time reducing the stress and expense of going through a divorce in court.

During mediation, you both work with a neutral third party, the mediator, to negotiate agreements that you both feel are fair.

How many meetings you will need depends on the circumstances of your case. In a complex divorce, where the couple shares valuable assets, have commingled property, and have children together, multiple meetings may be necessary. In a divorce where the couple already has a marital agreement dictating how they intend to divide property, and they don’t have children, you can reach all agreements in as little as one meeting.

During mediation, parties collaborate to decide how they want to handle the following issues:

  • Spousal Support
  • Property division 
  • Child custody
  • Child support

Why Should I Use Mediation?

Here are some of the benefits of mediating:


  • You maintain control of the case. You don’t have to worry about the outcome of your divorce falling into the hands of a judge who may not understand your needs or interests.
  • You save time and money. Mediating a divorce is typically significantly less expensive and takes less time than litigating in court.
  • You collaborate to achieve an outcome you both feel is fair. The collaborative and amicable nature of mediation makes it less stressful than attempting to litigate a divorce in court.
  • It enables parents to build a foundation for healthy co-parenting.

At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our Bakersfield Mediators help Californians utilize mediation to pursue ideal outcomes during their divorce process.
