For many people, December is the time that they complete the plans that they created earlier in the year. For couples considering divorce mediation, there is no time like the present. Divorce mediation offers an affordable alternative to expensive adversarial litigation and gets you where you want to be faster with less drama. Starting now will allow you to begin the new year in a better, less stressful place.
At Westfield Mediation, the divorce mediation process generally takes 4-6 one-hour sessions in which we develop both parenting and financial plans for your family’s future. For clients with children, we make weekly and holiday schedules, and we create a framework for addressing all of the issues that arise with having kids -- vacations, school, extra-curricular activities, religion, health, driving, college, etc. -- as well as how to pay for it all.
On the financial side, we help divorcing couples divide their assets and debts fairly and equitably with fewer arguments. We also craft an agreement for spousal support (alimony) in situations where such support is warranted. By breaking the divorce process into small manageable steps in divorce mediation, we make an overwhelming idea that you contemplated earlier in the year into a doable plan that you are making happen now.
The mediation process can move as slowly or quickly as clients choose. Many people space their appointments about two weeks apart, making the whole thing last about two months. Others prefer to move more quickly or slowly – the pace is really up to you. But getting started on divorce mediation now ensures that you will find yourself next year in the place that you hoped to be.
