What is divorce mediation in San Francisco?
Mediation is a process by which a neutral, third-party helps two parties settle disputes. In divorce mediation, spouses sit down with an impartial mediator to reach a divorce agreement. Spouses in San Francisco typically seek mediation to avoid court and amicably resolve divorce disputes.
San Francisco Divorce Mediation Process
The divorce mediation process in San Francisco involves three steps: an initial meeting, negotiations between spouses, and the settlement process. Mediation sessions usually last between 2-3 hours, but you and your spouse may require multiple sessions before an agreement can be reached.
1. First Session
In the first meeting, your mediator will explain that they must remain fair and impartial throughout the mediation process. Each party can bring their own attorney and ask the mediator questions about the process itself.
Negotiations will begin with a dispute being presented, and each spouse will propose their resolution to said dispute. These disputes can involve child custody, support, or asset separation, among other topics. With the counsel of their respective attorneys, spouses will negotiate and compromise until an agreement can be reached. If spouses are having trouble reaching an agreement, the mediator may make a proposed settlement, and each party can revise the proposed settlement until they are both satisfied.
If mediation turns into a shouting match, the mediator can arrange private meetings with each spouse and will move back and forth between meeting rooms with proposed settlements. An experienced mediator will find a way to ensure you and your spouse resolve divorce disputes in mediation.
Once spouses have agreed to divorce terms, the mediation attorney can draft the final divorce agreement and file it with a San Francisco court, along with the necessary divorce forms. A judge may then order the final divorce judgment, granting your divorce.
Is Divorce Mediation Right For You?
While mediation can help couples settle divorce terms amicably, it may not be the right option for all spouses. You and your spouse must be willing to civilly negotiate divorce terms; you’ll both need to let go of spite and focus on collaboratively building a better future. Nonetheless, couples find themselves working out disputes in mediation that they presumed would be fought in court to the bitter end. A knowledgeable mediator can foster the right conditions and setting for you and your spouse to resolve tough divorce disputes. If you and your spouse are willing to resolve divorce disputes with the help of a competent mediator, then divorce mediation may be right for you.
How Can A San Francisco Divorce Mediation Lawyer Help Me?
For divorce mediation to be successful, it’s important to hire an experienced mediator that knows how to help you and your spouse reach a fair divorce agreement. In addition to the mediator, you should hire your own divorce lawyer to protect your rights in mediation. The mediation attorney can help you and your spouse settle divorce terms, then draft a final divorce agreement that reflects your negotiations. Then, the lawyer can file the divorce agreement, along with other divorce paperwork, for you with the court. If the paperwork is properly completed and fair, a judge will decree a final divorce judgment, granting your divorce. One of our San Francisco Divorce Mediation Attorneys can help your and your spouse reach a fair divorce agreement.
