Family Law Mediation Lawyer Los Angeles & Orange County

Introduction to Family Mediation:

Mediation is a healthy and practical alternative to sorting out your domestic disputes, without involving a judge who will decide for you, which is why we work tirelessly to provide settlement strategies outside of the courtroom.

At Harris Family Law Group, our dedicated mediation attorney provides exceptional alternatives to resolving domestic disputes, whether they are related to divorce, child custody, support and visitation or other family matters that have caused discontent in your life. Although mediation is not for everyone, the benefits are substantial and can help both parties save time, money and the court’s involvement in their personal growth. Family mediation is the perfect opportunity to openly discuss the issues at hand, while having an impartial mediator record the session and keeping both parties on track during their discussions.

Our experienced and friendly mediation lawyer is focused on helping his clients get to the bottom of their disputes, without damaging their relationship. In an effort to find out more about your relationship and the circumstances that surround your need for family law mediation, Mr. Harris provides free consultations to discuss your case in its entirety. In order to sort out all of the details, comprehensive question and answer sessions will be necessary, and will be completely confidential. The goal of mediation is to provide solutions that allow your case to move forward, without any further delay. We can help you get there, without the stress, anxiety and cost of a court proceeding.

What is Family Law Mediation?

Easily explained by our accomplished family law mediation attorney in Los Angeles, the basics of this process entail a voluntary approach to resolving a dispute between two or more parties. This dispute can involve the details of a divorce or family matters including child custody and visitation rights. Each party is armed with relatively equal bargaining power, and are brought together to voice their needs, thoughts, opinions and suggestions, so a solution will result from the talks — instead of a court deciding on their behalf.

The benefits of family law mediation include:

  • Decreased Expenses: When issues are resolved without litigation, the process is shortened and streamlined, as are the legal fees.
  • Control of the Process: When you take your family matters into a mediation room, there is no judge that decides what is best for you. It is up to the two parties to maintain control of their circumstances, while ending the session with agreeable terms and conditions that they decide for themselves.
  • Amicable Dispute Resolution: Whether is it a divorce or child custody arrangement, mediation allows both individuals to discuss their differences openly, in a collected fashion. This allows the discontent to go by the way side, as they have nothing to prove to anyone else in the room and simply need to come to an agreement. This helps close the session on better terms than a courtroom might afford.
  • Better for the Kids: When you combine to make decisions that are best for your children together, it lessens the amount of time you spend going back and forth in an arguing manner. Since the kids will not be privy to your conversations in during the mediation session, it is possible to walk away with an agreement, while never bringing the subject up around the little ones. This allows them to rest comfortably knowing the two of you are not openly fighting over them.
  • Improved Communications: When both parties can communicate openly, the session ends with a fair and equitable departure. This means there is nothing more to argue about, and the two of you can move forward with your lives communicating effectively when necessary.

At Harris Family Law Group, our incomparable and experienced mediation attorney is here to help you get through this trying time without the anxiety and stress that a courtroom delivers. When it is time to begin the session, it will just be you, the other party and Mr. Harris. He will offer a skilled, fair, friendly and even-keeled approach to mediating all family law concerns so both parties can move forward with their lives with positive solutions in the place of discontent.

    "I came to Mr. Harris' services while in the midst of a not so pleasant separation. Mr. Harris walked me through each step of the divorce process, provided mediation when needed, and helped throughout the negotiations. Not once did I ever feel that I didn't know where my case was at in the process. Mr. Harris kept me informed and up-to-date on my case. He made sure that my best interest was always in consideration. As well, he would let me know if my request was not realistic or the best choice for an amicable situation and would provide alternate solutions that were reasonable and turned out to result in a much better outcome. It is without any reservation that I highly recommend his services."- Michelle
