Redwood City Uncontested Divorce Attorney
The fact is, not all people getting divorced are angry or upset at one another. Many times the goal is to remain as friendly as possible and collaboratively work toward dissolving the marriage as inexpensively as possible. Even in cases when emotions flare, many couples want to work out the process as painlessly, civilly and economically as possible.
If you are able to work out your issues and want to file an uncontested divorce or go through mediation, I can offer my decades of experience as a family law attorney. You will never have to walk into a court house in your case.
San Mateo County Divorce Mediation Lawyer
Regardless of issues, I am committed to help mediate resolvable disputes and to help you work them through the quagmire of the legal system. Unfortunately, given the legal system, even if the situation is as amicable as possible, the system will make you jump through hoops at nearly every opportunity. With an experienced mediator, however, you never have to once take time from work or wait in line at a courthouse. I have had hundreds of clients work with me in the evening, never set foot in court, and efficiently and economically file for divorce. I can handle all paperwork with complete compliance and ensure thoroughness and accuracy.
In mediation, I can act as a neutral third party to help you and your spouse come to an agreement. Mediation leads to a binding judgment without the need to go to court and is a very cost-effective alternative that reduces the animosity of negotiations. In arbitration, I also act as a neutral third party, but in this case work essentially as a judge and the two sides agree beforehand (in writing) to accept my decision. A mediated or arbitrated agreement must be submitted to the court for approval, but in many cases you do not have to appear in a courtroom.
These alternatives help couples:
- Prevent a lengthy and costly courtroom trial
- Select their own dates and locations
- Streamline the process
Because I have worked on family law issues for more than three decades, I have come to the conclusion that this approach is ideal overall. That said, if you cannot pursue this route, I can litigate to aggressively protect your interests.
Regardless of issues involved in your divorce, I encourage you to reach out at your earliest convenience.
