The Kitchen Table Method
Helping Clients Through Non-Litigated Divorce for Over 20 Years
Few couples are able to use
the Kitchen Table Method because it requires complete voluntary disclosure of all financial information,
a high level of trust between the parties, and the ability of both parties
to engage in unemotional, reasonable discussions until an agreement is
reached by both sides.
Divorce is an incredibly emotional legal matter to sort through, even for
couples who chose to separate amicably. For this reason, you will need
to work with an experienced
Irvine divorce mediation lawyer who can help guide you through the process of an uncontested divorce.

What is the Kitchen Table Method?
In the Kitchen Table Method, the parties spend an hour with an attorney
at the Center for Mediated Divorce. Your legal professional will thoroughly
explain the legal process and answer all of your concerns or questions.
If you decide that the Kitchen Table Method is the best option for your
family moving forward, then you will receive a detailed checklist and
the required financial documents to help you begin your settlement discussions.
Once you reach an agreement, you will return to the Center for Mediated
Divorce for your single mediation session. Our Irvine divorce mediation
lawyer can then review your agreement to be certain that it will meet
the court's approval. Our firm will then draft the final agreement,
along with the required court documents for filing with the court.
If no further meetings are necessary, the documents will be prepared, reviewed
and signed by the parties, and filed with the court. If further meetings
are needed, there will be additional costs; however,
our reasonable flat fees are based upon the number of meetings required to complete the matter.

uncontested divorce is the simplest form of divorce. It is when you and your partner are able
to reach an uncomplicated resolution on most major issues, including how
to handle property and child custody arrangements. In these situations,
after the spouse seeking the divorce has filed the paperwork, the other
spouse does not file a response in return.
Individuals who often seek an uncontested divorce such as the Kitchen Table
- Spouses who do not hold bitter feelings against one another.
- Spouses who are able to keep the big picture in mind during the divorce
- Spouses who are concerned about the time and cost factors involved.
- Spouses who have minimal assets and uncomplicated financial situations.
- Spouses who are able to make agreements regarding basic parenting plans.
One of the benefits of the Kitchen Table Method or uncontested divorce
