- Divorce Mediation
Perhaps one of the most significant trends in family law in California is the interest in mediation as an option to litigation.
Mediation is a dispute resolution procedure in which the husband and wife mutually identify a neutral third party, ideally an experienced family law attorney, to assist them in reaching agreements to avoid formal intervention by a Family Court judge.
There is no doubt mediation can be a valuable alternative and Steven M. Bishop carefully analyzes this option with every client.
