A More Affordable Solution than Traditional Divorce Proceedings


If you are seeking a more affordable alternative to traditional divorce proceedings, Henry F. Lewis can provide divorce mediation at his office in Oakland, CA.


A third-party mediator can help couples reach an amicable and civil agreement on key issues such as division of property, child custody, and other divorce-related issues. Mr. Lewis will act as a facilitator for you and your spouse and work together with each of you to achieve a fair and successful resolution.


Throughout the entire process, the main goal will be to have open communication, compromise, and to reach common agreements that will be satisfactory to both parties.


Why Mediation May Be The Right Choice for You

A divorce can be emotionally taxing for both parties involved. In addition to the emotional toll it can take on couples, it can also lead to unnecessary and often unavoidable costs. Mediation provides many great advantages and benefits for couples able to reach agreements on some of the most important aspects of a divorce, including:

             Control of the Process

As opposed to having to deal with the court system, couples are more flexible and in control of the entire process.

Improved Communication

Through good communication, couples can often resolve issues quicker and also avoid future conflict when their divorce is facilitated by a professional mediator. 

Less Expensive Solutions

The main benefit to mediation is that it is generally substantially less expensive than litigation.



Even though mediation offers a great solution for many couples, it may not be the right option for everyone. Clients who have suffered domestic violence in their marriage or couples who are unable to reach common agreements or are unwilling to compromise on some of the major issues may find that a traditional divorce is more appropriate for their needs.
