In the United States, researchers estimate that 40%–50% of all first marriages will end in divorce. Your divorce does not have to be financially or emotionally destructive.
In Massachusetts, the role of the mediator is to help both parties come to an agreement on all the issues involved in a divorce, and to craft a divorce agreement that will be filed with the court and accepted by the court. The mediator’s goal is to resolve any issues between the husband and wife in a less formal setting where both parties feel as though they’ve been heard on their issues and are able to come to a result that’s satisfactory to both of them.
There are many benefits to mediation including:
- Faster process than a contested and/or litigated divorce.
- More individualized agreements can be developed.
- Reduced impact on the parties and/or children involved.
- More cost-effective than traditional divorce proceedings.
