Providing Family Law Mediation Services In Southern California

At the Newport Beach, California, office of Elizabeth Jones, a Professional Corporation, I provide dedicated mediation services tailored to each client's needs.

"For 20 years, I have concentrated on helping clients discover peaceful resolutions to complicated, stressful divorce matters." - Attorney Jones

I provide unbiased, third-party guidance to help both parties discover creative ways to handle different issues important to their families. As an experienced Newport Beach family law mediation attorney, I have handled countless mediations for individuals throughout Orange County and Southern California.

I understand that mediation is a cost-effective way to maintain control over your situation while maintaining confidentiality. Notably, I bring insights and knowledge gained from attending the Advanced Family Law Mediation program at the Strauss Institute at Pepperdine University as well as multiple other mediation trainings.

Mediation Basics

Mediation allows you and your spouse to sit down with a neutral third party, preferably an attorney neutral, to examine and discuss the different dissolution of marriage-related issues you are facing and arrive at solutions that benefit the family. It enables you to maintain control of the outcome of your case rather than having a judge make decisions for your family.

In mediation, neither party has a lawyer, but instead relies on a neutral legal professional who provides confidentiality and neutrality throughout the process. As your mediator, my responsibilities would be to:

  • Facilitate communication between both parties
  • Complete all paperwork properly and on time
  • Ensure both parties understand their rights and the law
  • Ensure both parties make knowing and voluntary decisions
  • Provide creative ideas on ways to solve issues

Things To Consider When Thinking About Mediation

If you are considering using a mediator, it is important that you meet together with the mediator so that neither party believes that the mediator has taken sides with one or the other. Therefore, when you call for an initial consultation, do not provide too many details before selecting an attorney neutral. I can discuss the process to help you decide if mediation is the right alternative for you, while preserving confidentiality and neutrality.
