If you and your spouse are not able to see eye to eye and would like to split up, it is important to consider your options. Pursuing a divorce will make things final, making the possibility of reconciliation far less likely. A divorce also cuts off some advantages that you and your spouse may have, such as health or life insurance.
If you are hoping that spending time apart will lead to reconciliation, or you have other reasons for not pursuing a divorce, consider mediating a separation agreement. Our divorce mediators in Ladera Ranch at OC Divorce Mediation Center have almost five decades of collaborative experience and can help you through a legal separation.
A separation agreement is a contract between you and your spouse which changes your obligations, responsibilities, and rights. This agreement must be developed and signed by both parties, and you will be required to stick to the terms of this legally binding agreement. To reach a separation agreement, you and your spouse will either need to meet with a divorce mediator in Orange County, or go to court.
We recommend keeping these sensitive matters personal and out of the hands of the court. Mediation is an effective way to ensure your concerns and issues are addressed in a safe environment. Once you have reached an agreement on all of the relevant topics, we can put together the final separation agreement
We understand that going through a legal separation can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be a public court battle. Through mediation, you can reach decisions which will be beneficial for all parties involved.
