At Posey & Franzi, we understand the importance of finding a resolution that works for everyone involved. That’s why we offer mediation services for all matters related to family law, including child custody, child and spousal support, and property division. Our experienced attorneys have extensive knowledge of the legal system and can guide you through the process, providing full transparency and ensuring that all communications are shared with both parties.
One of the key benefits of mediation is the ability to come up with creative solutions that may not be possible in court. For example, if you need additional time to refinance the family residence, or if you want to stay partners in a business venture or real estate, a court may not be able to order these terms. However, in mediation, you can come to an agreement that works for you and your family. Additionally, in long-term marriages, over 10 years, the court cannot order step down orders in spousal support but you can agree to a step down in support. This will relieve of the future need to file a modification down the road for support. For example: spousal support could be originally set at $1000 a month and then in five years it automatically gets stepped down to $500 a month, when a spouse has more work experience, or they have completed their education. This will save thousands in future attorney’s fees and stress for your family. Coming to an agreement may bring you many benefits that a court can not provide.
At Posey & Franzi, we are eager to help our clients find solutions that work for them. Our years of experience in California family courts have given us the knowledge and skills to guide you through the mediation process, and we’re here to help you come up with a resolution that meets the needs of everyone involved.
