Using A Private Family Law Judge
As a San Jose divorce lawyer, attorney Wise is familiar with the attorneys who act as private family law judges. In certain contested cases involving high-asset divorces or other circumstances where divorcing spouses want to keep the details of their divorce out of public court, the parties may decide to use a private judge. It is often possible to resolve a case more quickly using a private family law judge and details of the case can be kept more confidential. However, it is not the best choice for every case. Attorney Wise can evaluate your situation and help you determine if a private family law judge is right for you.
Striving To Resolve Cases Through Mediation
As a mediator, attorney Wise will work with both parties to resolve the case without going to court. Mediation is usually the most cost-effective way to obtain a divorce. It allows parties to resolve the divorce, or certain issues relating to the marriage, in a nonadversarial setting. Mediation gives the parties the most control over the outcome of the divorce. The mediator educates both parties about the law, files all necessary papers and helps the parties reach an agreement without court involvement.
