Benefits of Mediated Divorce

Mediated divorce cases can have a number of benefits that a typical litigated divorce doesn’t usually have. The biggest reason for this is a mediated divorce typically keeps a judge out of your divorce agreement until the last possible moment, allowing you and your partner to determine the details of your divorce in a way that makes them fit your exact needs and circumstances.

As a result, mediated divorces typically result in:

  • Better, more fair terms for you and your family
  • Significant financial savings
  • Potentially a faster resolution to your divorce
  • Protection of the assets that mean the most to you
  • Less harbored resentment towards the other party
  • A happier, more nurturing environment for children

Do I Qualify for Mediated Divorce?

Mediated divorce is not right for everyone. If you and your spouse are constantly at each other’s throats for one reason or another, and won’t be able to work together on anything, then mediation is definitely not the right choice for you. Mediation isn’t necessarily the “easy way out” when it comes to a divorce; it still requires a substantial amount of work on behalf of both spouses to come to a fair and mutually-beneficial agreement. However, if you’re willing to work with your spouse and be flexible with your goals and best wishes, mediation may be the best option for pursuing your divorce.

  • I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades.

    “I knew Jeffrey personally as a proud family man and a pillar of the community with an stellar reputation as a family/divorce attorney. When my daughter was going through her divorce and had several bad experiences with two attorneys, in the Westlake Village area, I recommended Jeffery to her. After meeting with us to discuss the situation and issues, Jeffery and his staff went to work, we went to court, Jeffery not only got the results my daughter had hoped for, but also managed to have the opposing party cover his fees, he is beyond knowledgeable, professional and fair, he's brilliant at what he does and worth every penny. I have since recommended Jeffrey to all my friends and acquaintances who need legal help and will continue to do so. I cannot give Jeffrey Graff enough accolades and thanks for his help and exceptional negotiating skill in settling the case, thank you, again.”

  • Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount we paid cut down by more than half!!

    “Jeffrey handled my Family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex’s got a big child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to Jeffrey handled my family matter. Jeff is great!! He really helped me and my husband fight my husband’s ex-wife. My husband got hurt at work and we were really having a tough time. My husband ex-wife had a huge child support order against my husband and we didn’t even know that she went to court for that!! Then, she started coming after us for this big child support money every month. She wouldn’t even let her kids come over to visit with us and my kids, but just wanted the money and my husband wasn’t working. My co-worker went to Jeff for her divorce and she told me to call and talk to him. I am so thankful that I called him. I talked to him and he explained everything to me. I needed that because I didn’t know what to do. My husband and I met with him in his office. Jeff and the secretary were both so nice and very professional. I completely trust them! Long story short, Jeff was able to get the monthly amount my husband pays to his ex-wife cut down by more than half!! And on top of that got the judge to make my husband’s ex let the kids come and visit with my husband, who is still hurt, and my kids. Everything worked out so much better than I thought it could. I didn’t know we had a choice and that we could go to the judge to lower the support AND let us see the kids. I would recommend Jeff to anyone who need help with family law. Very Helpful.”
