Mediation & Arbitration for Family Law Matters in Thousand Oaks & Beyond

Family law matters such as divorce and child custody are some of the most contested issues in law. Emotions and frustrations often get the best of people, creating hostility and additional conflict. By the time these matters go to court, neither party is willing to compromise.

At NS Mediation Group, we work with parties involved in a family law dispute who hope to achieve a mutually agreeable resolution outside of court. Our experienced divorce and family law mediators have extensive training in facilitating communication and cooperation between conflicting parties.

If you are involved in a divorce or child custody proceeding and would like to resolve the matter through mediation, contact our office at (818) 730-3127. We serve parties in the Thousand Oaks area and throughout California.

Impartial Divorce and Family Law Mediation

In a divorce or family law matter, both sides may feel frustrated. The issues that come up in these hearings are often challenging to address without feelings of hurt and betrayal. A mediator can help provide a safe environment where both parties can express their concerns and the issues driving the conflict.

Mediation is an essential tool for people hoping to resolve a matter quickly and efficiently without having to go to trial. A mediator does not make the final decision in the case but instead helps parties to arrive at a fair, agreeable solution. 

Divorce Mediation

Mediation provides an important alternative for individuals who are seeking a dissolution of marriage but do not want to go through the rigors of court.

Things that can be addressed at divorce mediation:

  • Property division
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Child support
  • Child custody
  • Debt distribution
A divorce mediator can help remove some of the emotion out of the process by listening to both parties and narrowing the focus to the critical issues. Mediation helps to remove the uncertainty of the outcome since the matter must be agreed to by both parties.

Child Custody Mediation

Mediation can prove critical in child custody disputes. Effective co-parenting is essential for the success of your child or children. Arriving at a mutually agreeable resolution with your child’s other parent can help reduce hostilities and conflict.

Child custody mediation can help establish:

  • A detailed parenting plan
  • Legal custody
  • Holiday and vacation schedules
  • Transportation
  • Individual needs of the child/children

In child custody disputes, it is important to remember that the main goal is to promote what is in the best interest of the child. Mediation may help to achieve this goal by allowing the parties to discuss their issues through a controlled, confidential process. Mediators are trained to help the parties resolve their disagreements, not decide the matter at hand.
