Mediation & Collaborative Law in California

Alternative Methods of Divorce Resolution

Facing a divorce can be intimidating, especially if there are children involved and high assets at stake. However, there are options available today that may allow you to get through the divorce process in a swifter and less-adversarial manner than you ever thought possible. Both mediation and collaborative law allow you to stay in control of the divorce process and work cooperatively with your spouse to achieve a favorable final outcome.

Holstrom, Block & Parke, APLC provides mediation and collaborative divorce services to clients throughout Southern California. While the collaborative divorce process attempts to reduce the participation of attorneys in the actual negotiation process, they still play an important role in the overall process by dealing with any emergency custody or financial issues that arise.

What Is Mediation?

Mediation enables spouses to work together toward a final resolution of all divorce-related matters. During mediation, individual spouses are each represented by a lawyer, while a third party neutral mediator steers the process.

Mediation is designed help you reach an agreement on all divorce matters including:

What Is Collaborative Law?

Collaborative law is an innovative approach to resolving a divorce in a cooperative and non-litigious environment. If you are considering this option, it is important that you and your spouse have open lines of communication, as well as a desire to resolve issues without resorting to threats or pettiness. At the onset of a case involving collaborative law, both parties agree to avoid litigation and maintain transparency in the interest of achieving amicable resolution at an affordable price. They are required to fully disclose all of their assets, liabilities, and any other relevant information.

Collaborative law proceedings take place outside of court.

During the process, each spouse is represented by a lawyer. A team of professionals is utilized to provide insight and guidance in settling various matters. These may include financial planners, psychologists, and child care experts. This is a solutions-oriented approach to divorce that encourages spouses to work collaboratively and cooperatively.
