Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is an active process in which the mediator helps you to identify all the issues that need to be covered in your separation agreement. Your mediator will help you determine what it costs to live apart and, using that information together with the current income, help you determine the amount and duration of support. Kathleen will show you how the state child support guidelines apply to your situation. She will help you identify all of your material assets, figure out their value, and help you to divide them fairly. She will also help you make all of the future parenting decisions. Mediation is conducted so that there should be no losers—one spouse should not win at the expense of the other.
