Couldn't have asked for an easier mediation.  Full disclosure- my ex and I are on very good terms and had an idea of how we were going to handle child custody and finances but the crazy thing for us was getting through the court system in LA.
I found Victoria on Yelp and she was exactly what we needed.  She banged out our paperwork without having to meet with us.  We did everything over the phone and through email.  There are incredible amounts of paperwork (which my ex had weeded through initially)  and she was able to get them filled out and into court system within a few weeks.  I believe its only been about 4 months since we first talked to Victoria and our divorce was finalized this week!!

Wow.  Where do I start about this wonderful lady that I was lucky enough to cross paths with?  Let me start by telling everyone the nightmare I was in when I reached out to Victoria for help. 
Back story: I had hired a "mediator" who, for $799.00, promised me divorce paperwork that would take my marriage to dissolution, "no probs".  She even went as far as telling me to avoid Legal Zoom because she heard bad things from clients, in that they don't help you if you have any subsequent issues.  Little did I know at the time, that SHE would be causing all of those issues, not my divorce case itself which was uncontested even with a child involved. And she was the one I could barely reach every time a problem showed it's face.  Long story short, my paperwork was rejected by the Courts (I mean, this woman had NO idea!) and I didn't know what the F-else to do.
I looked to Yelp.  And found Victoria.  And I called her.  I let myself go when we first talked and just in that short, 10-minute conversation, she was like a rainbow in a horrible mess I was led to by the original mediator I'd hired.
Victoria just knew what the hell she was doing; she even SOUNDED like she knew what she was doing and I ran with it.  I'm SO glad that I did.  Victoria expertly re-did the entire paperwork the other woman had made a dog's dinner of.  She even talked about forms that were necessary and MISSING from the original paperwork, that I had no prior idea I needed at all.
Papers were accurately completed in such a timely manner; it's clear she was super qualified and she knew her craft.  It gave me such a peace of mind - and guess what?  My divorce was finalized without issue as of June 19, 2015.
Victoria is worth every single dime she charges AND she's a pleasure to work with!  She's the ultra-professional and you won't regret hiring her services.  Given the situation I was in, I made sure to check references this time and everyone came through.  But mostly, Victoria came through for me and I will gush about her until I'm blue in the face.

Victoria is a professional, hardworking and persistent individual. She saw my complicated case through with no real issues. While deployed to several different countries and totally different time zones, Victoria answered my calls at all hours of the night and worked around my schedule. She was very pleasant and so easy to work with. Victoria carried all the heavy lifting and held my hand through the entire process, never once did I not know exactly what was going on. I recommend Victoria to all my war time military divorcees, (so many of us).

I filed for my divorce with Pasadena court house myself and it was a disaster. They needed this form and that form and they don't help you at all! The dissolution had been on hold for over a year and I just needed help!! I found Victoria and she came to the rescue. It was so easy , we did everything over email and the phone and she took care of EVERYTHING!! I am a busy single mom and don't have time for anything. Victoria is just a gem, she made this 2 year nightmare absolutely effortless! Thank you for your professionalism and expertise.

Victoria D'Cotledge has been nothing but a joy to work with.  I was frustrated navigating the legal system without a lawyer trying to get through finalizing my divorce which had been filed nearly 2 years earlier.  Going lawyer free in the state of California means you need to spend many hours at the court house doing judgement workshops, financial workshops, etc.  It was time I would need to spend away from work, wages lost, time lost, etc.  I googled low cost divorce and clicked on a link for CA divorce center.  I filled out the online form and within minutes received a personal email from Victoria.  She was prompt, super responsive, very easy to work with and explained the process carefully so that I understood it.  There was a flat fee which was incredibly reasonable.  One time fee, no hidden fees.  Just one payment.  She made an incredibly arduous process streamlined and simplified.  As soon as she had all the information from both parties in our case, she didn't waste any time submitting the papers to the courts.  Due to a backup of cases, it took about 3 weeks from the time she submitted our final papers to have the judgment entered and our divorce final.  Victoria is a miracle worker.  I know she does mediation as well too.

Victoria was so very helpful throughout my whole divorce process!! She's very professional and keeps you up to date with everything. She walked me through the whole thing and I would use her again if I needed to!!

Victoria is the best!!!! From day one she was walking us through this VERY complicated process and was always there to answer questions, be a friend, and help us negotiate our non-contested divorce. Seems like it would be easy, but there's no such thing in ANY divorce proceeding. Without Victoria's ethics, experience, and empathy it wouldn't have been so smooth. My wife and I are still good friends. Thank you Victoria!!!!!

Victoria D'Cotledge  has done a great job helping me through my divorce.
From the very start. I had a lot of questions, and she always replied in a timely manner. The legal documents were crazy, and my ex hesitated to sign her copy.
I only had to re submit the documents once. Victoria was there again to help me.
A few weeks ago I got the final documents. I will refer her to anyone.
Thanks Victoria

Victoria D'Cotledge is an amazing well-versed professional in her field of divorce mediation. Her attention to details and the difficulty of divorce made the whole process go smoothly. She kept me and my Ex informed all along the way. If I had a question she answered immediately. She is honest, forthright, skilled and knows her way around the necessary paperwork. I appreciated the fact that she kept both parties informed. Victoria was there for myself and my Ex the whole time. Divorce is challenging enough but to find someone who is able to walk both parties through the complete process step by step is a valuable asset to have by your side.

Going through a divorce was one of the hardest times in my life.   I luckily found Victoria through an online search.  One word to describe her service:  Amazing.  She was professional, knowledgeable, and patient with all of my questions.  She always returned my calls quickly and even met with me personally when we had to correct some paperwork.  Victoria always made sure to keep both my ex-wife and myself involved in all communications and assured us that she was working for both of us and not only one side.  She worked diligently for us and got our divorce finalized in under 7 months.  I wouldn't recommend divorce but if you find yourself in that situation, I highly recommend Victoria.

Victoria D'Cotledge has been wonderful.  Everyone that I talked to about divorce has said that it is the worst thing that they ever went through...  spending your life's savings with battling attorneys, the legal paperwork and documentation that is enough to drive you crazy, and the custody battles that seem to never end.  Luckily, my ex wife and I are on good terms and wanted to dissolve our marriage in the most amicable way.
I found Victoria by doing some searches and doing research about mediation in general.  We got so lucky to find Victoria.  She has been extremely helpful with walking us through the whole process.  She took her time to explain the necessary steps, time frames, and paperwork that would be need to process.  She always called me back asap, and sent follow up emails in a timely manner.  She made the whole process really easy and smooth.  Her fees are extremely reasonable and would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to go through a divorce the easiest, most inexpensive, and pain free as possible.
