Mediating a divorce settlement helps prevent the potentially damaging impact of an adversarial divorce.
At Agreement Resources, LLC, our divorce mediators help you to:
- Identify the topics you need to discuss in order to navigate the divorce process.
- Consider and discuss your goals, needs, interests and options, and the best interests of your children.
- Have productive conversations to:
- Divide assets and liabilities,
- Build a durable parenting plan,
- Consider spousal and/or child support,
- Identify how to maintain health insurance, and
- Discuss tax topics related to your divorce.
At the end of the process, we prepare a clear and comprehensive document reflecting the decisions you and your spouse have reached.
Our mediators focus on ensuring that you both are each heard and understood. We help you both gain clarity on what is important to you, so that together you can craft your own workable solutions, custom-made and informed by Massachusetts guidelines.
