Mediation is a process that assists disputing parties in resolving conflict through the use of a trained mediator, without going to court. At McGaughey & Spirito, we can serve your mediation needs as the neutral mediator or as your legal counsel.
Mediation generally takes much less time and money than litigation unlike a court hearing, mediation offers privacy to both parties. Resolution is not about winning or losing; it is about creating solutions that work for everyone involved. You and your spouse know what is best for you (and your children), and mediation offers you more control over your future – rather than being told by a judge how to divide your assets or how to co-parent your children. During the mediation process, you will also learn how to better communicate with your spouse so that future conflicts can be minimized, thereby giving a now fragile relationship a chance to improve over time.
Mediation works best if you and your spouse are both focused on resolving your differences.
The trained attorneys at McGaughey & Spirito are effective communicators who will facilitate the negotiations between you and your spouse, even if your divorce involves complex financial and custody issues. Our mediators will foster a safe environment for you and your spouse to express yourselves and resolve your issues.
Please contact us at (310) 465-1000 and let one of our highly experienced mediators help you determine if and how mediation will work for you.
