How mediation works in California

Many divorcing couples elect to use a mediator before engaging in litigation. Rather than going to court and letting the judge decide the terms of the divorce (which may not end up producing an outcome that either spouse is happy with!), in mediation a neutral mediator works with both parties to discuss the issues and facilitate compromise that everyone is agreeable to. Mediation is almost always less expensive than a contested divorce and can resolve all issues relating to divorce, such as property division, child custody and visitation, and child and spousal support.
