The goal of mediation is to reach a mutually acceptable Marital Settlement Agreement and take all other steps necessary to accomplish the dissolution of a marriage. If done in this fashion, the emotional and financial strain divorce actions put on families will be greatly reduced, if not entirely eliminated.

Divorce actions often degenerate into an all-out war. It does no good for one spouse to offer to divide property equally and provide ample support if the other spouse's objective is to destroy. In a mediated Divorce it is essential that both parties share all pertinent information so that all issues relative to the divorce can be negotiated in good faith. Otherwise, in litigation, whatever money or property you have accumulated during your marriage will probably be consumed entirely by your lawyers because of the high cost of the litigation process.

Mediation also provides a great deal of privacy. In court it is common for 40-50 cases to be on calendar any given morning. When your case is heard, there are 40-50 other couples listening to your private affairs being revealed in an open courtroom. Do you really want strangers to know what assets you have, where you live, when you visit your kids, what you pay in support, what you earn, etc.?

Mediation is cost effective and keeps your personal affairs private. For further information on mediation you may call Joseph Adelizzi at 760 - 632-1338.
