We will meet together in a preliminary meeting to decide if mediation will work for your family at this time. When a family separates or is deciding to separate there are many emotions and uncertainties. In this meeting, I will provide a detailed map of the mediation process. I will ask questions to see if both parties will benefit by the mediation process. We will discuss if your attorneys will be part of all the steps, only if needed, or only at the end.
Once hired, I will give you each access to the Secured Portal to provide financial information along with several worksheets to complete and a parenting plan worksheet with various template options for visitation schedules and the guidelines for child support.
I will create an estate spreadsheet and post-separation budget for each of you along with several proposed parenting plans. Mediation only works if both parties are truthful and produce everything needed from your family.
I will meet with each of you individually to review your divorce worksheets, the financial spreadsheets, post-divorce budgets, and parenting plans. You will come up with a list of issues to address at the Joint Negotiation Session and, hopefully, will talk to your partner about these issues before the next session. These meetings can be held right before the Joint Negotiation Session. If there are many issues, we may decide to have many specific Joint Negotiation Sessions to cover each issue.
I will meet with both of you to identify any remaining problems to generate options with the goal of reaching an agreement detailing your estate division and co-parenting plan. You and your partner will create and sign a document either named a "Settlement of Meetings" or a "Mediated Settlement Agreement."
You will take the "Settlement of Meetings" or "Mediated Settlement Agreement" to a family law attorney to complete the legal process.
