MEDIATION AT DIVORCE HELPLINE IS THE BEST OPTION FOR YOUR HIGH-VALUE ESTATE DIVORCE.
Complex cases are resolved far more quickly and far more inexpensively in mediation than in litigation. Forensic accounting, child custody evaluations, business evaluations, vocational evaluations–sometimes these tools are necessary for the settlement of your case. Divorce Helpline has had two decades of experience working with the top experts in California, at a fraction of the cost of litigation.
In fact, spouses with high net value estates have the most to gain from the mediation process, and the most to lose from litigation in court! Everyone has heard the horror stories of divorcing couples spending years in family court, only to lose a substantial portion of their assets to attorney’s fees and costs.
Divorce litigators want you to believe that your complex or high value estate divorce can only be fairly resolved by courtroom litigation. This is false.
The dirty secret of divorce litigation is there is nothing you can do in “Litigation” that you cannot achieve during Divorce Mediation. “Divorce litigation in court” often comes down to two experienced litigators, on the eve of trial, who begin bargaining to avoid that trial. This is, of course, if you both are lucky enough to have chosen two-settlement minded attorneys. But why spend tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars hiring two attorneys and fighting in court before coming to the “settlement table?” At Divorce Helpline our attorney-mediators will help to identify the immediate issues that, if left unresolved, often lead spouses into litigation. If necessary, we will bring in the same experts, advisors, and coaches that are part of an experienced litigator’s team of colleagues, but at a vastly reduced cost to our clients.
On the other end of the spectrum, and perhaps even more disturbing, are the document preparation services who would have you believe that you can fill-out a cookie-cutter legal document and protect your valuable assets. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Each year thousands of divorce Judgments are filed which are unenforceable–and many of these are filed by attorneys! Unfortunately, when a Judge signs your divorce Judgment, he or she is not saying it is an enforceable, valid legal document! Mind boggling, isn’t it? Because of this, if you have the financial means, your divorce Judgment should always be drafted by an experienced family law attorney. At Divorce Helpline our experienced attorneys will draft your vital legal documents while working hard to keep you out of court. However, if you don’t currently have the means to purchase our Complete Divorce Package, our attorney consultants are available to review your legal documents.
The Divorce Helpline method includes a variety of tools and settlement structures with which we can help even those clients who have lost all trust in each other to come to a fair settlement of their case. Even in those rare cases where spouses have an issue that they cannot reach an agreement upon, Divorce Helpline’s attorneys can help you narrow your disputes, obtain court orders for those issues that are not in dispute, and vastly reduce the cost if, in fact, you do end up in court. Divorce Helpline also works with California’s most experienced Private Judges and Arbitrators to provide an alternative to a court trial for those few cases in which mediation has not been successful.
