Learn More About Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is an alternative to the lengthy, costly and adversarial process of a traditional divorce. One of the benefits of divorce mediation is that you control the outcome of your divorce. Divorce mediation is a voluntary process agreed to by both spouses. If at any time you no longer want to continue with divorce mediation, you can end the process.  A mediator is a neutral third party with special training in mediation. The mediator does not represent either spouse, but helps to facilitate discussions between the parties to resolve the various legal issues that must be addressed in a divorce.

An impartial third-party mediator helps both parties negotiate the terms of their divorce, including:

  • Division of assets
  • Child custody
  • Child support
  • Parenting time
  • Alimony
  • Health insurance coverage
  • Life insurance coverage

Attorney John Ullian is a trained mediator and a member of the Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation. He is a knowledgeable divorce attorney, with more than 32 years of experience in litigation, negotiation, and appearing in the Probate and Family Court. He also authored the book, Divorce – A Hand-holding Consumer's Guide To The Divorce Process.

Benefits

Many couples in need of a divorce are concerned about going through a lengthy, costly contested divorce. They would prefer to keep things amicable and work cooperatively to try to reach a divorce agreement, but are unable to agree on many of the important legal issues that must be resolved. This is when mediation can be a great benefit.  Couples who elect to pursue divorce mediation over the traditional divorce process do so for a variety of reasons, including the following:

  • It dramatically reduces costs. As opposed to paying two attorneys, the parties pay one mediator.
  • It is a faster process – it eliminates months or maybe years compared to the contested, traditional divorce.
  • It can dramatically reduce the emotional stress of the parties and of the children by resolving the legal issues through negotiations. The parties agree on the final result rather than leave it up to a third party (the judge) who does not know them or their children.
  • It can lead to a binding, final agreement on your terms that can be presented to the judge.
