San Diego Divorce Mediation
I. WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation is a non-adversial process designed to help parties reach a resolution without formal litigation.
Mediation is a private and confidential process that is held in the privacy of the office of Alan V. Edmunds. The process is dignified and conducted to ensure the privacy of the parties. Mr. Edmunds has had the privilege of representing nationally prominent individuals, and has completed mediation in these cases, with complete confidentiality and privacy afforded to both parties.
Mediation is a very time efficient and economical method of problem resolution. Contested litigation is very expensive and filled with emotionalism and often acrimony. The mediation process saves the parties a great deal of emotional turmoil and is financially more reasonable in cost.
II. HOW DOES THE PROCESS OCCUR?
The mediation process at the offices of Alan V. Edmunds is conducted in a separate area of the law firm. The sessions are prescheduled and each party is notified ten (10) days in advance of the date, time and place for the mediation sessions. Both parties attend the mediation sessions with or without an attorney. The procedures differ slightly, when parties bring separate counsel to the mediation process.
The discussions at mediation are designed to help people to define their differences and reach a resolution. It is important to know that the mediator is a neutral facilitator for resolution. The parties decide the results of mediation and the results are often much more beneficial than those obtained through litigation. Mr. Edmunds has 27 years of experience in this area and has saved couples thousands of dollars through successful mediation.
III. WHAT ISSUES CAN BE MEDIATED?
