Divorce Mediator will meet you and your separating spouse for any number of sessions as you will decide. We can start at a minimum number of meetings that will end in a final agreement containing financial division of present assets and set strict guidelines for future financial conducting behavior. The agreement will clarify children custody roles and can also be used as a final base for divorce attorneys if you still wish to use litigation. That way, you will reach to the stage of adversarial divorce when you already agree on all of your uncontested divorce issues and in a cheaper cost and a more pleasant, less threatening atmosphere.
Divorce mediation can also be used for a more comprehensive attitude in which we will not only be discussing “hard” divorce issues (house, retirement plans, mutual assets, children custody…etc’), but also deal with “softer” aspects of the divorce process. Our top mediators are trained as family consulters as well as certified coachers. We are aware of the emotional baggage that painful divorce can produce. Being in full control, stand up for your needs, fight for your interests and claim what is yours after years of marriage is tremendously difficult. We will help you cross these critical times by coaching you how to deal with the new conflicts in your life (being alone, enter a new spouse to your life, etc’…).
To handle a new threatening life situation and be a good parent at the same time is much harder. If you share children with your separating spouse, new conflicts may rise on a daily basis. Life will encounter you with your child school obligations, birthdays, wedding expenses, etc’… we will set a solid base to deal with those “surprising” conflicts. You will acquire the tools to solve future conflicts, negotiate your way out in order to reach a common ground that will allow you both to work together. We will put a special attention to parenting coordination. We can teach you how to handle the new delicate situation of raising children in separate houses (and maybe even the addition of a new spouse). We will guide you how to work as a single parenting unit while living apart and give you tips on children adjusting post divorce.
