Child support is one of the most important issues during the divorce mediation process. While it is an obvious focus during a divorce settlement, it is also important to realize that the conclusion of a divorce mediation process does not always mean that all problems related to child support go away. Many issues can come up related to child support after a divorce has been finalized. Lesa Koski is a trained and experienced divorce mediator who specializes in helping families resolve these type of problems both during and after divorce.
Benefits of Post-Divorce Mediation
There are many reasons you might need to seek a mediator to resolve a child support issue after a divorce. Your specific examples will be unique, but will also likely fall into a category that Lesa Koski has had deep experience and expertise in. Perhaps the most common example is that your former spouse is late with child-support payments or refuses to pay you altogether. Even though the law may obligate your former spouse to pay according to the child support agreement, it will take time, energy, and money to resolve the issue if he/she is not abiding by the agreement. If you do not have the luxury of waiting for that promised support, Lesa Koski can help you. Mediated divorce is not solely about ending the marriage. It can also include providing help and support after the divorce is finalized. And when child support is the issue that is causing you stress following your divorce, it is important to have an advocate to argue for your interests and help you navigate the legal process.
Managing Child Support Issues After Divorce
If child support is interrupted for legitimate reasons, such as the loss of a job or an unexpected illness or injury that prevents child support payments from being made, you may still need the help of a professional mediator. If the interruption of child support is due to a communication issue, mediation can be extremely effective. Lesa Koski can help you assess the communication between you and your former spouse and the mediation process can improve communication in the future. She can also help you learn new and more effective communication strategies. This is done not to place the burden of good communication on you alone, but to give your former spouse the responsibility of communicating clearly in response. When child support issues arise, clarity in communication can go a long way toward helping you resolve the issue quickly and efficiently.
