As divorce mediators, at Westfield Mediation, LLC, we meet divorcing couples who are at different places in their relationship. Some soon-to-be-exes have worked out a parenting and financial plan for moving forward after divorce; some have not even agreed about ending their marriage; and most are somewhere in-between. Regardless of your preparation for the future, divorce mediation can be extremely helpful.
For those couples who have already worked out some details of their plan, the mediator can help by reviewing the plan. She asks the right questions and makes sure that the divorcing couple understands what they have agreed to. Then the mediator writes up the agreement in a way that is both comprehensive and flexible, and clearly reflects the family’s plan. By addressing all of the issues, divorce mediation reduces the chances that the family will have later disputes and will have to return to Court multiple times.
For those families where the spouses are not on the same page about moving forward or have not yet discussed how the new set-up will look, the divorce mediator breaks the process down into small, manageable steps to make it less overwhelming. She ensures that each party’s voice is heard, so that no one feels that he or she was steamrolled into agreeing to something that makes him or her uncomfortable. By working closely with the couple, the divorce mediator makes a difficult process less stressful and creates a fair agreement for the family going forward.
In divorce mediation, we meet you where you are in your own relationship and process, and help guide you along to a future that makes sense for your family.
