R egardless of how large the win in trial, I have found that clients are ultimately more satisfied when they decide to mediate their cases. Due to the high costs of litigation, the amount of time it takes to get to trial and the emotional toll on clients, mediation is clearly the best alternative to litigation. California’s court system is the largest in the world and serves a population of more than 39 million people. With a population in Orange County that exceeds three million people, it has more residents than 21 states. For this reason, the Orange County Superior Court remains one of the largest and busiest state trial courts in the United States. * In the Fiscal Year 2015-2016, over 6.2 million cases were filed statewide in the Superior Courts. The total marital filings such as dissolution of marriage, legal separations, nullities, paternity, and child support cases was 387,849.* While many divorces may seem as if they will be litigated, the majority of divorce cases ultimately settle. If you are asking why should I mediate, here are the Top 3 reasons to do so: Here are the Top 3 Reasons to mediate your case with Attorney Yolanda V. Torres , Certified Family Law Specialist: 1. Financial: Family Law Mediation is extremely affordable compared to litigation. Clients often find litigation stressful and dislike how the courts are extremely slow paced compared to mediation. When a case is set for court, clients dislike the fact that their case may not be finalized on the day of their hearing and that they must return to court another day or multiple times and incur additional attorney fees, as attorneys charge for their time. 2. Faster Results with Mediation: Clients are often surprised to find out that certain issues in family law cases have priority over others. For example, a client with a financial issue before the court will often have their case postponed if another case, such as a domestic violence case is scheduled the same day, as the domestic violence cases have priority. While financial issues are extremely important issues, the Family Law Courts view these issues as issues of lower priority in comparison to issues such as Domestic Violence, Child Custody, and Visitation. In addition, many Family Law Courts are overly impacted which ultimately results in higher costs for litigants. In addition, in many Family Law Courts, there are shortages in judicial offices. 3. Certainty with Mediation: Any time litigants decide to go to trial, they are gambling with the fate of their children, finances and property. In mediation, the results are certain. During the course of my 17 years of practice, I have practiced in Orange County, Los Angeles County, and Riverside County. I have mediated numerous cases, with the majority of my mediation work being in Family Law actions. I also have experience mediating probate matters, and civil litigation matters. While it is true that there are some cases that cannot be settled, clients are often surprised to find out how many cases ultimately settle. If you want to avoid the high costs of litigation, I encourage you to mediate your Family Law matter with my office. Call The Law Firm of Yolanda V. Torres at (714) 541-5400 to schedule a private consultation.
