Real Talk San Diego: What Is Divorce Mediation?

On July 7, 2016, San Diego Family Mediation Center’s mediators Jennifer Segura and Amanda Singer made an appearance on Real Talk San Diego talking about the basics of divorce mediation and other mediation topics, including prenuptial agreements. The first topic covered is a basic overview of what mediation consists of and the benefits it provides. Most prominently are the financial advantages of choosing divorce mediation over litigation. With attorneys requiring a minimum of $5,000 for a retainer, each party can easily spend $30,000 or more apiece! Mediation’s flat fee is an attractive option for many families. Because mediation is not well known as an option for divorce, this spot on Real Talk San Diego was a fantastic way to spread knowledge about the outstanding benefits mediation offers.
