What Is Mediation?

Mediation is one form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), which uses an out-of-court approach to privately address family law concerns. At Cage & Miles, our lawyers are qualified to assist with the mediation process, serving as mediators or advisers to individuals engaged in this process. We will use our expansive skillset to help you make sound decisions regarding custody, support, property division, and other issues.

When spouses are unable to find common ground on family legal disputes, they may turn to a neutral party, the mediator, for support during negotiations and exchanging information. Our attorneys provide constructive, compassionate counsel that encourages spouses to identify acceptable solutions for family law problems. We have helped countless families throughout San Diego County move beyond their divorce and into the next stage of life.

The Benefits Of Mediation

Many families choose mediation over a traditional form of dispute resolution for these reasons:

  • Mediation sessions are private; whereas, court proceedings are public affairs.
  • Mediation sessions allow parties to retain control over the decision-making process. In court, the judge has the power to determine child support terms and other important matters.
  • The compliance rate for agreements secured through mediation is often higher than compliance with court-ordered agreements. As a result, parties may not need to spend time and money to file enforcement petitions for custody or support violations.
  • Mediation sessions are more economical and efficient than litigation sessions. Couples participate in mediation based on their schedules rather than the court’s schedule.

All family law matters can be upsetting even without court involvement. Mediation allows you to take a hands-on, private approach, lessening the emotional impact this process has on you and your loved ones.

How Does Mediation Work?

Mediation sessions are led by a neutral mediator who is responsible for helping couples resolve conflicts in a comfortable environment.

Some facts about the mediation process in California include:

  • Mediation is confidential – Mediation hearings occur in a highly controlled and confidential environment, allowing all parties to express themselves and their desires for the divorce without the potentially uncomfortable situations which can arise in the public courtroom.
  • Mediation requires neutrality – When you decide to resolve your divorce using our mediation services you can rest assured that your mediator will be impartial and will work diligently to seek the best outcome for all parties while keeping your needs and desires a priority.
  • Our mediators are trained professionals – The mediators at Cage & Miles are all professionals who have been specifically trained to help you and your family resolve your divorce situation as comfortably as possible. Our mediators have conducted hundreds of mediation processes and all have the experience needed to help your family move into its next phase.
