Why Divorce Mediation?

Insight from an Experienced San Francisco Divorce Mediator

Don’t make the mistake of starting a war with your spouse to end your marriage! If you think about it, the very concept is absurd. If you were ending, for example, a 12-year business partnership, 99 times out of 100, all you would have to do is sit down with your partner – divide up the assets – divide up the liabilities – shake hands and part ways. Ending a marriage can be done the same way. It is a bit more complicated because there can be issues of child and spousal support, but the important point is that it doesn’t have to be a battle! The mediators at Liaise can help you and your spouse navigate the complexities and arrive at an agreement that is a negotiated blueprint for ending your marriage. The settlement that is reached is given to the court and will become the judgment that terminates the marriage. You never have to appear in Court. You save thousands of dollars. You can save your family from a huge fight and be in a better position to move forward with your life.
