How you go about resolving the numerous issues involved in a divorce, such as child custody, division of assets, or spousal support, will determine whether or not the results provide stability and closure for each person and any children involved. A couple going through a divorce wants to do so feeling the least amount of pressure from outside parties if at all possible.
If you and your spouse cannot make a decision or reach a compromise about a tentative parenting plan or other vital issues, these life-altering decisions will be left for a judge or a court-appointed mediator to decide. Even though these professionals are trained and knowledgeable, the best decisions for your family should be made by its own members. This can be a major challenge, especially when emotions run high and it seems impossible to reach a solution for both people involved in the divorce process, but you have to try. You may find that a skilled California divorce attorney can assist you through the mediation process. Keep in mind that if you and your spouse can reach an agreement through mediated divorce, you are more likely to have a less stressful experience. Mediation is cheaper, quicker, and less detrimental to children and relationships than going before a judge in court.
The other important benefit of mediation is attaining an official Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA), which is the closest thing to a genuine final solution that you can get. It may take experimentation with a mutually decided plan until a final agreement is reached on all issues in the form of the MSA. An experienced divorce attorney can assist you with the mediation process by preparing your MSA document and communicating with the other spouse so that you can spend time helping your family through this difficult time.
