At Westfield Mediation, LLC, it is our job to include the what-ifs into your Memorandum of Understanding so you leave with a thorough and complete divorce agreement. Sure you plan to sell the house in a few years, but what if your plans change and you never sell. How will you pay your ex-spouse his/her share of the equity in the home? Yes, you agree to terms of alimony for the next 9 years, but what if the payee dies? What if one of you gets a job transfer to Texas? What if one of you gets remarried?
While it is impossible to foresee the future, your divorce agreement should include answers to as many what-ifs as you can imagine. Often couples think that their post-divorce plans will just work out as anticipated. But life can get in the way of best-laid plans, so it is smart to anticipate some of these what-if scenarios. Some people are so distraught during the divorce process that s/he cannot imagine what his/her new life will be like after the divorce. A divorce mediator helps you create a new beginning and future for yourself, anticipating the uncertainties in life.
