Divorce Mediation is a family-centered conflict resolution process in which an impartial third party assists the participants in negotiating a consensual and informed settlement. In family law mediation generally, the decision-making authority rests with the parties. Located in Orange County, the role of the mediator includes reducing the obstacles to communication, maximizing the exploration of alternatives, and addressing the needs of those it is agreed are involved or affected. Mediation is based on principles of problem-solving that focus on the needs of the participants, fairness, privacy, self- determination, and the best interests of all family members.Academy of Family Mediators
In a mediation session, either party may consult an outside attorney, counselor, or financial planner of their choice at any time throughout the process. Either the mediator or the parties may ask for a caucus at any time during the mediation. A caucus is an informal confidential meeting between the mediator and an individual party. Anything disclosed in caucus will be kept in confidence unless otherwise permitted by the disclosing party. Any time a caucus is held with one party, typically a caucus will be held with each individual party to ensure equality and impartiality. At the end of this process, the mediator creates a settlement agreement for your dispute, which is then filed with the courts and becomes a binding Judgment. Parties will be provided with copies of any and all agreements reached . . .
