Westfield Mediation, LLC, at the first meeting with all clients, regardless of their situation, we start off by explaining how divorce works in New Jersey, how divorce mediation works and how Westfield Mediation works. We want our clients to understand what divorce mediation can and cannot do for them and what exactly they are agreeing to before they start this course of action for themselves.
After the initial step of agreeing to participate in divorce mediation services, we are able to personalize the next steps to your situation. So, we start where you are.
Some clients are already living in separate households and some clients cannot imagine how to go about living in two separate households. Either way, your future as a divorced couple will have you living in two separate households. We will help you get there, regardless of how you start. Another example involves finances. Some couples have completely separate finances, including bank accounts and credit cards, when they start mediation. Others are fearful of breaking off into two sets of finances. However, you will have separate finances in your future and we will help you get there. While we don’t actually accompany you to the bank to do the paperwork, we help you figure out which accounts are staying open with what balances and which accounts need to be closed.
We understand that all these decisions can feel overwhelming. Divorce Mediation does not follow a fixed time line. The process can move as quickly or slowly as you need. Some decisions you may be able to make immediately, while others you may need more time to mull over.
At Westfield Mediation, LLC, we start with clients where they are, wherever that may be in their lives, but we end up with clients with a divorce agreement.
