What is mediation?

In mediation, a neutral and impartial person called a “mediator” helps both sides communicate and try to reach a solution to their dispute that is acceptable to both of them.

The mediator does not make any decisions about the dispute. He or she just helps both sides talk through the issues, so they can settle the dispute themselves. Mediation leaves the control of the outcome to the parties in the case. Who better to decide on matters of divorce, child custody, and other family issues than the family? Our divorce mediators will help you focus on what is important.

What does mediation cost?

The average cost for a Ventura divorce attorney is $350 per hour. Mediation is available for a fraction of that price, at an average of $185 per hour. We are low-cost divorce experts, and we keep our mediation services affordable and accessible. Rest assured, we have a divorce mediation package available that will suit your needs and budget.

What are the benefits of mediation?

Mediation is often regarded as the fastest, most economical and least stressful way to approach divorce proceedings. It’s also a fast, cost-effective way to handle child custody, employee/employer, real estate, and education disputes. You will receive legal and emotional support in mediation, which are two things you won’t get if you file for divorce via a self-help legal center.

What can I expect at my first mediation meeting?

At your first meeting, your divorce mediator will explain the process and the fees. They may also review the facts of your case with you to make sure all information is correct. Then both parties will have the opportunity to give an opening statement. This will be your chance to explain your desired outcome of the process.

The rest of the meeting will be dedicated to reaching a decision both parties can agree upon.
