Through the process of mediation, a divorcing couple can make their own decisions regarding their children, property division, and support. The process of mediation is completed out of court with the assistance of a neutral mediator. In California, the mediation process is confidential and private. There is no testimony in court, and no need to go to court at all if the husband and wife complete all their agreements in the mediation process. Depending upon the complexity of the divorce, additional professionals (coaches, child, and financial specialists) can be brought into the mediation to help each spouse (or partner) reach educated decisions.
