Family Mediation Process

What is the Family Mediation Process?

The family mediation process is a specialized type of alternative dispute resolution, centered around families and their specific needs during a dispute. Family mediation may encompass a variety of disputes, but at South Bay Mediation, our focus is on two aspects of family disputes. We focus on divorce mediation and child custody mediation services, to help families work through their differences in a safe and confidential environment.

Family mediation offers you and your spouse the opportunity to keep your family decisions within the family. Rather than letting a judge decide your children?s fates during a divorce, you and your spouse will be given the opportunity to decide what?s best for them on your own. The family mediation process provides an outlet for you to express your concerns, while putting your children?s needs above your own.
