Post-dissolution issues are sometimes even more stressful than getting the actual divorce. If children are involved, issues often arise leading to need for modification of time-sharing, which may lead to modification of child support. More often than not, co-parenting issues leading to a need for a parenting coordinator or guardian ad litem. If you’ve already spent a small fortune getting divorced and now need assistance resolving a post-divorce issue, consider mediating your dispute in a non-adversarial and non-litigious process, where you can:
- Design your own Mediated Settlement Agreement that works for both of you
- Prepare and file all of the court-required documents under the supervision of a certified, trained mediator with expertise in family law issues
- Pay-as-you-go! Typically, lawyers require retainer fees in advance of performing any work on your case. LSS mediators will mediate your case on an hourly basis
Mediation is generally the least costly, non-adversarial, method of obtaining a divorce with the assistance of one neutral facilitator. Mediators provide the parties with a safe atmosphere, professional leadership, and issue specific guidance focused on uncovering the pertinent divorce issues, and resolving them with less emotional turmoil and financial expense than litigation. The end of a marriage and post-dissolution issues are often overwhelming, emotional, and sometimes paralyzing experiences. Worse, they can be financially debilitating, with long-term effects on your family unit. Mediators can focus you on achieving your end-goals, without bankrupting you with legal costs and expenses.
