There are plenty of first-rate websites offering comprehensive information about divorce and separation. We’re happy to recommend them. But we believe learning about and exploring your options – at what is typically a fraught and emotional time – requires being listened to as well.
And it requires being listened to by experts in the field. This is why anyone contacting Lawyer Supported Mediationwill be offered a free of charge telephone consultation with both a senior family lawyer and a conveniently located recommended family mediator. Because until you’ve had an opportunity to discuss your individual circumstances with professionals in the field, it’s unlikely you’ll be aware of the appropriate choices available to you.
We’re passionate about this because how you decide to divorce or separate is second only in importance to your decision to part. The lawyers you instruct and the process you decide upon will impact upon you, your ex and above all upon any children involved. And this will continue to be the case long after an agreement or judgment is reached.
Of course, focusing on the future when the present is understandably all consuming is extremely difficult. Our network of lawyers and family mediators are there precisely for this reason and with Lawyer Supported Mediation you can speak with both free of charge.
It could well be that your circumstances require the immediate application of pre-court process. Our network of senior family lawyers in San Diego and throughout the USA – are all experienced litigators – and will advise you if this is the case.
But as the name suggests, Lawyer Supported Mediation– and the senior lawyers and recommended family mediators we work alongside – regard court action as a final recourse when less adversarial and less expensive options – appropriate to your needs – have first been considered and explored.
And it’s these options including lawyer-supported mediation and collaborative law that may hold value for you. There’s never a simple answer but we’re confident that after speaking to one of our network of senior lawyers and recommended family mediators, you’ll be better equipped to decide.
