Divorce - Possible without lawyer, just a mediator?
After an enormously painful year of fake R, further ddays, and endless blameshifting, I've decided to start the divorce process.
Both me and WW don't have a lot of money or assets. We earn approx the same
We don't have any property, just a car (she can keep) furniture, some credit card debt, and debt with IRS.
We live in CA.
Assuming that she will accept an uncontested and amicably divorce, would it is possible to use JUST a mediator and no lawyers?
I already spoke to a lawyer and went over my financial situation and she told me that we would probably end up "even". No alimony, relatively simple asset/debt division
Would it makes sense to try to go the mediation route, saving us both thousands of dollars?
Thank you anyone for the help
