Campbell Family Law Mediator

Mediation is a voluntary cooperative process you can use to resolve disagreements. It is a private and confidential method of resolving disputes. Emotions and communication problems can make it difficult for couples to negotiate directly with each other, which is why an experienced mediator can be helpful.

MediationMy name is Tammara Bloom. As a trained mediator and experienced family law attorney, I work with the parties as a neutral facilitator to assist them in resolving their disputes and reaching a mutually acceptable agreement. My role as a mediator is to reduce obstacles to communication and create an environment that encourages an open and constructive exchange of feelings and ideas.

I work with the parties to identify issues that need to be resolved and explore their underlying needs and interests. I educate them about the legal issues and guide them through the settlement process, exploring the alternative solutions with fairness, integrity and impartiality. If necessary, I can prepare the court paperwork they need to file and complete their case.

Mediation requires two parties willing to assert their concerns, needs and interests. The parties must also be able to listen to each other and be open to reaching a result that is fair to the other. Parties going through mediation control the decision-making process as they make the important decisions about what is best for themselves and their family.

Mediation can address issues a couple or family has, including:

Mediation Is More Cost-Effective

Mediation is a cost-effective way to resolve a divorce case. The average cost of a litigated divorce in California costs $45,000 per party. Much of this expense is spent on discovery, research, and court appearances that will never be incurred for disputes settled in mediation. Parties in mediation should each consult with independent lawyers to provide legal advice as necessary and review any proposed agreement before the parties sign it, but mediation typically involves much less attorney time. Further, in mediation, the parties share the costs of the mediator instead of individually paying for two attorneys and because the parties work jointly with the mediator, issues can be resolved more quickly than with an adversarial approach.

Mediation Is Faster and More Efficient

The parties set the pace at which the mediation proceeds. Parties who would like to resolve things more quickly are not held back by court schedules. If an agreement is reached through mediation in a timely manner, parties may never need to appear in court.

Mediation Goals

I approach each mediation case with the following goals:

  • Facilitation of respectful communication between the parties that allows them to safely express what is important to them and why
  • Gaining mutual understanding of each other's differences
  • Full disclosure and open sharing of information
  • Parties working together to define and clarify issues, then seek creative solutions to create a durable agreement that is fair to both parties

Research has found that people have much less resentment towards a settlement when they have participated in the shaping of its terms. As an experienced family law mediator, my primary role is to ensure that you remain in control of the decision making process and gain guidance to make informed choices and empowerment to create equitable agreements.
