If you are concerned that your spouse is hiding money then hire a forensic accountant. You are not going to lose out on anything by using a mediator versus using an attorney. The attorney will refer you to a forensic accountant and so will the mediator. If you don’t believe Zillow regarding the sale price of your home then hire an appraiser or get a market analysis done by a local real estate agent. Don’t rely on your attorney or mediator to do these things for you. The term “stay in your lane” comes to mind. Each professional should do what s/he does best and not try to do someone else’s job.
Using a divorce mediator can save you significant money, take less time and decrease the stress of the divorce process. But a mediator does not do it all for you. At Westfield Mediation, LLC, during the first meeting we explain exactly what we can and cannot do for you and offer direction towards other professionals you may need to complete this process. We just don’t leave you hanging out to dry. We know who and what it takes to get divorced. We have a lot of collateral contacts in the area. So if you are in need of a service we do not provide we can give you the names of real estate agents, forensic accountants, therapists, etc., who can help.
