The attorneys at Griffith, Young & Lass happily help families through their divorce via mediation. A divorce can go one of two routes: mediation or arbitration. Mediation is a more direct approach that involves the two divorcing spouses and a lawyer creating a settlement together. Arbitration involves the judge and the lawyers representing the two spouses. The judge examines the evidence and hears the testimonies. The judge then decides upon the settlement for their clients.
Both options have their unique benefits. At Griffith, Young & Lass we want to represent you, no matter which avenue you and your spouse take to divorce. We offer both services and will let you know of which option we think is best for you and your spouse.
John Griffith, a San Diego family lawyer, offers family mediation services to his clients and has years of experience working with families through mediation.
“I often recommend mediation for my clients because they will have a direct say in arriving at their settlement,” says Griffith. “In many cases, the courtroom isn’t necessary for a divorce. Many couples are willing to figure their settlement on their own with the help of our legal counsel.”
Having a lawyer in mediation is not required, but having one proves very helpful. Many couples are bombarded with legal jargon and don’t understand the legal agreements their divorce entails. Our lawyers specialize in family and divorce law and know the ins-and-outs of the California family courts system.
Divorce can be a difficult and emotional time for you and your family. At Griffith, Young & Lass, we handle the legal side of your divorce and save you and your spouse the additional stress of sorting through legal jargon.
Mediation is a great option for you and your spouse if you want to work together to arrive at a settlement that best suits the needs of both parties involved. We’re here to help you and your spouse develop the perfect settlement for your family.
