Weber Dispute Resolution: A San Diego Divorce Mediation Leader
When you are looking for the fastest and least expensive way to get divorced, consider Mediation.
When mediating your divorce, a neutral third party sits down with both of you to help resolve the issues in your separation. The mediator doesn’t make any decisions. That part of the divorce process is up to you and your spouse.
The process does not rely on trust. Rather, it relies on principles of a good business decision. The mediator helps divorcing couples communicate with one another until they can come to an agreement.
Most people can resolve even complex disputes if they are given the opportunity, a clear procedure and the help of a mediator. Even disputing parties who are angry and frustrated can successfully negotiate and reach a mutually satisfactory settlement. People can address even the toughest issues such as:
- Legal Separation
- Child Support
- Spousal Support
- Property Division
- Child Custody and Visitation
What to Expect From the Divorce Mediation Process
To help you figure out the terms of your separation or family law matter, you and your spouse will meet with one of our divorce mediators. Your attorneys can participate when appropriate. This assures that everyone has the same grasp of the process.
We will glean the basic facts and clarify the issues of the dispute. Our divorce mediator will then facilitate the negotiation with your spouse, considering available options and their respective advantages and risks. Sometimes your mediator may request to meet separately with each of you to discuss your individual interests and views.
When you decide on your issues and have reached a mutually acceptable settlement, we will prepare a written memo that confirms your agreement. Then, attorneys or other professionals can review your agreement for terms and content.
Should you desire, we can prepare a marital settlement agreement (MSA). In addition, we can prepare all the papers needed to finalize your divorce or separation. The terms of your agreement, once processed and filed by the Superior Court, become court orders.

Benefits of Mediating Your Case
Mediating is a helpful cost-effective means for many couples to manage and resolve difficult family law and divorce issues. People are successful in figuring out even the toughest issues like spousal support, child support, child custody or complex property division.
Probably most important, participants maintain maximum control over decisions that can affect them and their children for many years to come. Mediating offers the following benefits:
- No Pressure. You won’t feel pressured. Rather, disputing parties need not make any decisions until they have had sufficient time to obtain legal advice.
- Safe. You don’t need to give up your rights when mediating.
- Sensible. It’s an informal and sensible way to negotiate.
- Cost-effective and Quick. A mediated agreement usually costs less and takes less time because the parties are doing the negotiating, not the lawyers.
- Less Acrimony. By avoiding litigation and contentious Superior Court hearings, parties can reduce the amount of conflict between them.
- Higher Success Rate. Studies show people are more likely to live up to agreements they negotiate themselves. Orders decided by a judge are followed less.
