Divorces can be challenging. Even when Stockton couples agree that it is time to end their marital relationships, there can be a number of issues that arise over which the partners simply cannot agree. From how property should be divided to how the parents should spend time with their kids, even peaceable divorces can suffer setbacks when unexpected differences stand in couples’ ways.
Couples who divorce in California can choose to mediate their divorces rather than litigate them. In mediation, couples work together to settle their differences rather than advocate for their preferences before a court. Some couples find that they are more satisfied with their mediated divorces than couples who chose to litigate their divorces; one way to learn more about divorce mediation is to speak with a lawyer who handles mediated divorces.
The law firm of Butler, Thiessen & Metzinger, Inc. & Associates has experience working with individuals who have pursued divorce mediation. Not all California family law attorneys include divorce mediation in their practices, and for this reason individuals who want to better understand the process should seek out counselors who take on these types of divorce cases.
