The Divorce Mediation Process
Divorce Mediators are neutral professionals who work diligently to facilitate discussion and settlement between the divorcing couple. Divorce Mediators help the couple to set aside hostility and redirect their focus to reach agreements in the best interest of their family – particularly when children are involved.
Divorce Mediation Services can be used to settle all divorce related issues, including parentage, child support, child custody, child visitation / parenting plans, spousal support (‘alimony’), and the division of community and separate property assets and debts.
In addition to divorce matters, Mediation is also an excellent choice for same sex couples seeking dissolution of their Domestic Partnership.
This process allows the parties to maintain control of the results and develop creative strategies for resolving their conflicts – creativity that is not available in Court when a case is litigated. Divorce Mediation provides the couple with the ability to make their own decisions, without letting a stranger – a judge - who is unfamiliar with your family circumstances and lifestyle determine your fate and that of your children.
The fees & costs of Divorce Mediation are significantly less than Divorce Litigation which can run into tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars or more per party. At Fosgate Family Law & Mediation Center, the average cost, including Mediation sessions, preparation of court pleadings, court filing fees, and turning your Settlement Agreement into the “Stipulated Judgment” required by the court to finalize your case is between $5,500 and $8,000.
