Mediator for Division of Assets and Property

Do you know the difference between the property that’s rightfully yours, your spouse’s, and both of yours, as a married couple? Distinguishing between marital property and individual property can be challenging, particularly if a marriage has lasted for many years. Finances get entangled, gifts are bought, silent agreements are made, and when the time comes for a divorce, it’s unclear just who gets what when all is said and done. Believe it or not, there is a method to dividing property that’s more effective than simply splitting assets 50/50. A divorce mediator can help you discern which property is rightfully yours and your spouse’s so that your divorce agreement includes a fair division of assets and property.

Spousal Support Agreements

Every element of divorce is challenging as requires a knowledge of the laws and restrictions that dictate what constitutes a fair divorce agreement. Understanding the challenging language and details of marital and divorce law can be a daunting task for anyone, especially when it comes to deciding on a legally equitable alimony agreement. Many times, before a couple decides to divorce, they’ve spent time thinking about how they could be financially independent after a divorce. For some, this is simple. For others, it’s a slightly more difficult task. Spousal support agreements depend on a variety of factors, including the income and financial security of both parties, as well as several others.

Low Conflict Divorce Agreement Mediator

When there are children involved in a divorce, it often makes the entire process much more heated and challenging. No one wants to give up parenting time or have to pay an unfair amount of child support, and no one wants to be tasked with caring for children alone when they can’t afford to do so. Child support, child custody, and child visitation agreements are all determined based on factors observed in a relationship, including parents’ financial security, the division of property – including the family home, the relationship between children and both parents, and more. These are heavy topics to consider on your own – or to fight over in court.
