Amicably Resolving Cases With Mediation

Even in divorce cases where both parties are on amicable terms and wish to end the process quickly and smoothly, certain aspects may prove difficult to negotiate without third-party assistance. Mediation is a process whereby an impartial mediator steps in and helps the parties reach agreement on aspects such as property division, asset division, debt division, child custody and more.

Because your attorney represents you, and your spouse's attorney represents them, attorneys cannot mediate the agreements themselves. They can only advise clients on the benefits or disadvantages of a certain proposal. A mediator is impartial, and does not favor one side over the other. They are bound to confidentiality, and can make suggestions on ways to satisfactorily divide your property and assets. If you and your spouse are considering mediation, call the Law Office of James A. Jackson at 760-340-4545 today.
