Depending on how long your short-term marriage lasted may influence how you look at your marital assets. Recently, a couple that was married for less than one year decided to leave the marriage with whatever each came into the marriage with. What’s mine is mine and what’s yours is yours. They used mediation to put it all in writing and avoid any confusion or misunderstandings down the road. They plan to file the court paperwork and zip through the remaining steps to get divorced. Another couple has been married for a few years. They are stuck about what to do with the house, which they bought last year during a hot market with low interest rates. Now the interest rates have doubled and they have very little equity in the house. They are using mediation to reach an agreement about this issue and to put into writing all of the other financial issues that they agree upon already.
During the process of divorce mediation you create a divorce agreement, no matter how long you have been married. Even with short-term marriages there are plenty of benefits to using a mediator. You can reach an agreement in a few sessions, at a reasonable price, without missing any important details about your finances that could be costly in the future. You don’t know what you don’t know. At Westfield Mediation, LLC, our practice is solely focused on divorce mediation. It is all we do. So, we do know what you don’t know about divorce. We can guide you through the process quickly and cost-effectively.
