Divorce mediation in MA with Ben Stich will help you:

Develop a divorce agreement

Couples work with the mediation to develop a separation agreement that addresses your goals and concerns. Negotiating divorce through mediation empowers you to make your own decisions about what is in the best interest of your children; your finances; and your futures.  Divorce mediation avoids leaving these important decisions to expensive attorneys to battle hoping they make decisions that will be in your best interest.

Ensure privacy

Mediation is a confidential process. The mediator can never be called upon to assist either spouse in future court actions.

Give you complete control over the decision-making process.

One of the core principles of mediation is self-determination.  This means that all decisions are ultimately yours to make, not an attorney and not a judge.

Save time and money

Divorce mediation allows you to pay for one professional, rather than hiring two separate attorneys, each of whom probably charge higher rates than a mediator.  The divorce process moves more quickly than litigation because mediation provides a process that is designed to help you come to resolution rather than contest every issue through an attorney.

Enhance child well-being

Mediation helps improve communication between the divorcing parents and results in better child-centered decisions.

 

 

My wife and I found ourselves locked into disagreements ranging from parenting schedule to providing racial balance for our bi-racial children to school district choices to responsibilities of children’s items, such as a special blanket, to child support and asset division; nothing was off limits and the longer the divorce prolonged, the more misunderstanding, lack of trust and animosity grew between us. Ben was a voice of reason and compassion, that time and time again reeled us back to a place where the possibility of good will between two opposing forces took root to resolution. Ben’s approach is disarming but he challenges each party to look at the integrity hidden beneath the hurt, to honor, recognize and answer, “What is fair?”  -Brian, Divorce Mediation Client
