How does a collaborative divorce work?

You may wish to avoid the heartache, cost and time of a court battle, so you are looking into amicable divorce methods. You considered mediation, but you and your spouse have too much at stake and a significant amount of conflict, especially when it comes to child custody matters and asset division. However, you are still willing to work things out without the interference of a judge, if possible. Like other Californians considering an uncontested divorce, you might be thinking about collaborative law.

Mediation for same-sex couples

At the Law Offices of Diane J.N. Morin, we understand that when you and your same-sex partner seek a California divorce, our laws may or may not apply to your specific situation. Many state laws do not fully consider the special problems that you and other same-sex couples often face when you divorce.

How you can prepare for your upcoming divorce mediation

While a divorce proceeding could bring out the worst in both parties, a mediation encourages cooperation and mutually agreed upon solutions between spouses. If you see mediation as a worthy alternative dispute resolution, there are important steps you can take to get yourself ready for an upcoming mediation.
