If you are searching for a California Mediator it is important to know what mediation is, and what your rights entail. Often times when someone is searching for information they will consult with an attorney, ask a friend, or research the matter online. Either method is extremely helpful in understanding the mediation process.
The mediation process is a less costly method for resolving divorce related disputes. The traditional divorce proceeding can be more costly than a mediation session. The price of a family law divorce will depend on the particular circumstances of your case. If you feel that you will be able to resolve your divorce issues in a mediation session, you may want to first start with mediation. If you and your ex are able to reach an amicable agreement in mediation you may have no further need for court intervention.
The role of the mediator is to help guide the parties toward reaching an amicable agreement. Mediator's are not allowed to offer the parties their own personal opinions, or solutions to how they should resolve their conflict. The mediator will ensure both parties are equally heard. In addition, the mediator will enforce the rules of mediation throughout the session. Both parties will be prohibited from using offensive language, or using profanity toward one another. Moreover, the mediator will make sure that one party is not dominating the session. If at anytime the mediator feels that one of the parties is monopolizing the time available in the session they may redirect the conversation or intervene. During the mediation session if you have any questions it is important to ask the mediator to avoid further confusion.
