How Does Divorce Mediation Work in Orange County?

Divorcing spouses meet with a mediator – who acts as an impartial third party – to negotiate terms for the dissolution of their marriage. How many times parties meet with a mediator depends on the circumstances of the case. In a complex divorce where the couple shares valuable assets, have commingled property, and has 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, mediation can resolve in as little as a single meeting.

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

  • Alimony/spousal support
  • Property division
  • Child support
  • Child custody

After spouses have successfully negotiated equitable terms, their A.D.S. Certified Mediator will draft an agreement detailing those terms. Once the agreement is approved by both spouses, the agreements will be filed with the court for a judge’s approval to finalize the divorce.

Mediation has several benefits:

  • You get to decide the outcome of your case, instead of relying on a judge;
  • The collaborative nature of mediation often makes the process more amicable than handling a divorce in court;
  • Mediation is typically faster than litigating a divorce, enabling you to save time and money on the dissolution of your marriage.

At Alternative Divorce Solutions, our Newport Beach divorce mediators help can help you successfully mediate agreements that meet both of your best interests.

“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.”
