What are a few advantages of mediation for those working through a divorce in Carlsbad, Oceanside or Encinitas?  Mediation offers several advantages over litigation when seeking to resolve differences during the course of a divorce. The primary benefits of mediation include:

    • It Provides Skills Which Serve Both Parties After the Divorce is Completed
    • It is Cost Efficient
    • It is Usually the Fastest Way to Resolve Differences Outside of Negotiation

Mediation encourages the participation of both parties by creating a safe, non-confrontational atmosphere where aspects of disagreement can be placed on the table for discussion and resolution.
