Hi, I am Judy Williams, the Owner of Center for Mediated Divorce, a family
Law Practice in Irvine, California and I’d like to welcome you to
my new blog! I decided to write this blog because I have a desire to help
couples navigating the difficult divorce process. In my blog, I want to
highlight the alternative methods to a litigated divorce, as I am a strong
believer that while the divorce process is never easy, it can be accomplished
in a peaceful manner.
About 5 years ago, I decided to eliminate the litigation part of my practice.
I had one too many sleepless nights worrying about clients, worrying about
what would happen in court the next day, hassling with the opposing council
when they were not giving us the information we needed, playing games
and just generally making life miserable for my clients. So, it was a
difficult decision because, of course, litigation is where the money is,
and I was concerned with whether a practice solely based on peaceful solutions
was going to be viable or not. I took the plunge, decided to take the
road less traveled and do it.
I believe that when children come into this world they deserve the very
happiest calmest life that can be given to them. So often children become
the pawns in a divorce situation where the mom and dad are so angry with
each other or so hurt by things that have been done or said that the children
end up being the ones that really are harmed by the divorce process.
So, I believe that anything that I can do or other people can do whether
it’s ministers or councilors or friends, all of us can form a support
group to help people see that a peaceful way to divorce is what’s
best for the children and best for the family. I look forward to sharing
my knowledge with you and would love to hear your feedback. I hope you
will participate in the discussion on my blog!
