Burbank Divorce Mediation Attorneys

Professional Mediation for Amicable Divorce Outcomes in California

Couple during mediationDivorce mediation is an alternative means to work out the terms of a divorce settlement without the need for lawyers or going to court. When successful, it is much less expensive and much more likely to maintain or even improve the respect and positive feelings between a divorcing couple, following the divorce being finalized. Mediation means the divorcing couple can discuss and work through the various agreements that must be presented to the court themselves with the help of a trained and neutral third party.

Our attorneys have over 50 years of combined experience guiding people through the complexities of divorce. Mediation is one of the most collaborative and respectful methods we offer to our clients.

A mediator must be specially trained and often has a background as lawyers or judges. They assist both parties, advising them on each issue and educating them on what the judge may expect to approve their settlement agreements. In mediation, both parties are committed to working through their differences, with the mediator facilitating an open and cooperative environment.

Understanding the Divorce Mediation Process

Mediation differs from collaborative divorce in that it does not involve attorneys directly in the negotiation process. The issues are resolved directly between the divorcing couple. In a collaborative divorce, each lawyer advises their client, and while they aim for a fair settlement, they must prioritize their client's interests.

In mediation, any agreements reached by the parties are binding once submitted to the judge. If a settlement cannot be reached, the process can be terminated at any time to return to litigation. Mediators charge an hourly fee, allowing for flexible scheduling of sessions and breaks to consider proposals.

After reaching an agreement, you have the option to have your own attorney review the settlement before signing any documents and submitting them to the court.
