Get Control of a Divorce By Trying Mediation First

Irvine, CA (Law Firm Newswire) April 2, 2012 - There comes a moment in almost every divorce where everyone feels like they are losing. Instead of escalating costs and tension, divorcing couples should consider mediation. Each spouse can still have their own lawyer, but a mediator will hear each side’s interests and propose solutions that each side agrees with for the marital dissolution.

“Courtroom litigation takes a lot of time, money, and puts a lot of stress on everyone because it is a judge who ultimately decides each person’s fate,” said Irvine divorce mediation lawyer Gerald Maggio. “If you can agree to discuss your divorce much like a business transaction, you can resolve these matters far more efficiently.”

Mediation allows for more flexibility and creative solutions to dividing assets, real estate, and child custody. Many couples that have divorced say mediation, in particular, helps prevent children from feeling like they are just passing through each parent’s house. Creating a workable, fair parenting agreement allows the children to have stability with each parent and time to grow with after school activities and hobbies.

“A mediator’s job is to be a neutral party and lessen the criticism each partner might have for each other and to listen deeply to what each side fairly deserves,” said Maggio. “It can take just three sessions to have the marriage dissolved and put in place what is best for each person.”

Divorce is always a delicate process, yet mediation helps each spouse stay more in control and feel empowered that they are creating their own reality post-divorce. As needed, financial specialists and counselors can be on hand to assist the couple to resolve any concerns.

The Maggio Law Firm is known for first-rate client service and helping individuals achieve their divorce goals in the most efficient, cost-effective manner. With compassion and skill, they help clients from the initial free consultation to resolving complex marriage dissolution matters.
