Spousal Maintenance Mediator

Spousal support, which for many is probably better known as ‘alimony,’ is a financial agreement between a divorcing couple reached either by court proceeding or by mutual consent. In the latter case, mutual consent generally occurs when a divorcing couple works with a divorce mediator to come up with a fair and equitable financial arrangement. For many couples, divorce mediation is becoming more preferable to working through the court system with lawyers representing both parties because the court system tends to be much more expensive, time-consuming, and inconvenient for all involved. If you and your divorcing spouse are able to work together, the issue of spousal support may well become simpler to resolve. Lesa Koski is a trusted and experienced divorce mediator serving the Woodbury area. Read Full Post »
