Cost-Effective Divorce Solutions: Online Mediation vs. Court Litigation

If a divorce seems likely between you and your spouse, there can be turmoil waiting ahead. Hearings in open court and your life being dictated by a judge rarely have good results – and it can cost you far more than you expect. Even simple divorces in family court can be expensive, and when complex variables or serious disagreements are involved, the costs skyrocket.

Can you avoid the painful process and excessive costs of divorce court litigation? Yes! Online divorce mediation is far more cost-effective and beneficial to your family. The family law professionals at California Divorce Mediators compare online mediation vs. court litigation divorce solutions and their costs.

Typical Divorce Court Litigation Costs

There are only two ways to end a marriage in California: through a divorce trial or a mediation settlement. Almost everyone agrees that a settlement is less traumatic and does less damage to everyone involved, especially children. Certainly, it costs less than a lengthy litigation process.

Divorce mediation can be a voluntary step couples choose to hammer out agreements together and avoid costly litigation. When couples refuse mediation or cannot reach a settlement, the family court must handle the divorce. This lengthy process involves filing for court hearings, preparing for suits and counter-suits, the discovery process, depositions, pre-trial preparation with your attorneys, time missed from work, travel costs, lengthy delays, and much more.

Martindale-Nolo Research reports that typical attorney fees for a California divorce litigation are around $12,500 to $30,000 but generally higher when cases go to trial over multiple issues.

Other costs can include:

· Multiple lawyer fees (you and your spouse will have your own attorneys)

· Court reporter fees

· Independent Child Custody Evaluation fees

· Expert witness fees

· Property disposition fees

· Research costs

· Court-ordered mediation fees

· Court costs

· Time lost from work

· Fuel and travel costs

An attorney’s billable hours increase dramatically when they and their staff must research, prepare depositions, spend time in court, prepare and file numerous documents, and handle the other details of a lengthy legal battle.

Who has money like that just lying around to basically throw away? Wouldn’t it be better for both spouses to conserve as many resources as possible as you both start new lives? Virtual divorce mediation is a more cost-effective and less stressful method of handling your divorce in California.
