During the initial session, the mediator and counselor will be able to learn more about your specific situation to help direct the mediation and focus. During this visit, our counselor will also make sure to schedule appointments to meet over the next two months in order for clients to work together with the mediator through certain factors such as child custody disputes, co-parenting and property division issues. Our counselor will help you work through these problems at your own pace while also encouraging positive behaviors among one another while transitioning into a different life – especially when co-parenting.
By the end of the two-month time period, you will have signed a binding Mediated Settlement Agreement (MSA) for the co-parenting or property decisions that you have made. You will then be able to live with the agreement. At the end of the predetermined time period we will meet for one last session to make any necessary changes to the MSA. You will then receive the completed MSA, which is used in your Final Decree of Divorce. Your decree can be prepared and presented by you or an attorney for court approval.
