No two California couples divorce for the very same reasons. For some, time has passed, children have grown, and spouses have discovered that they no longer have anything in common; hence, they decide to go their separate ways. Others do so following a particular incident or string of events, such as an extramarital affair or serious medical condition. Regardless of the details of an individual situation, if both spouses are able to communicate amicably, divorce mediation may be an option to keep things out of court.
In the throes of a marriage gone bad, making the best out of a sour situation can seem impossible. After years of marriage, divorce can be an uncertain start for many - not only do you have to begin a new life on your own, but you might have to do it with a different set of resources. Is there anyway but the hard way after marriage?
Many California couples confronting divorce proceedings say they feel certain their situations are completely unfair. For instance, a parent might have a very difficult time dealing with certain issues, such as his or her children being closely connected to a new romantic partner of the other parent. Matters of child custody and visitation are often the center of disagreements regarding what is fair and what isn't. Divorce mediation may be a viable choice for resolving these types of issues.
