Helping You Resolve Family Law Matters Through Mediation
Family law issues such as divorce and child custody are often stressful. Litigating such matters can be costly and time-consuming. The court process may also make you may feel left out of the decision-making process. The courts may make important determinations concerning your children, finances and division of assets instead of you. For this reason, mediation has become an increasingly popular means for resolving family law-related disputes.
My name is Donna Denham, and I am a family law lawyer and mediator in Chula Vista. I created Denham Family Law, APC, to help individuals from Southern California resolve family law issues. I have assisted individuals exclusively concerning family law issues since 2004. My experience and designation as a family law specialist allow me to understand the role alternative resolution methods play regarding contentious family law issues. I have extensive experience helping attorneys and parties resolve their divorce and family law issues through mediation.
What Is Family Law Mediation?
Mediation allows you to resolve family law issues outside of court. Because of this, it will provide you greater privacy in resolving sensitive matters. It also provides you with much greater control over decisions that will impact you and your family. A mediator does not determine who wins or loses. The mediator’s role is to guide you toward arriving upon an agreement. Major determinations concerning divorce-related matters or care of your children are left to you and your spouse.
Having an experienced attorney who understands the mediation process on your side is vital. I can help you know what to expect from the process and protect your legal rights.
My Role As Mediator
When assuming the role of mediator, I will bring fairness and understanding to the mediation process. The settlement proposal I submit will be with the parties’ best interests of the parties in mind – particularly in family law situations involving children. Such a proposal will accurately reflect the needs and desires of everyone involved.
