The Mediation Process In Massachusetts

In Massachusetts, mediation is a voluntary process. While it is not required by law, it has a number of benefits for individuals and families. It is typically more cost-efficient, expedient and amicable than typical divorce litigation.

At Koiles Pratt Family Law Group, we work with families facing a broad range of family law issues and offer our services at every step of the process — from an initial divorce filing to the modification of existing agreements down the road.

The Steps In The Mediation Process

  1. At our initial consultation, we sit down with both parties and evaluate any existing agreements for divorce, property division, child custody and support, or alimony. We look at the facts of the case while listening to each side to determine what issues need to be resolved.
  2. During your mediation, we will help you negotiate, discuss and address specific issues, and find common ground that can translate into a fair resolution.
  3. At the end of the process, you will be able to come to an agreement that meets the needs of all parties. Our goal is to form agreements that are reasonable, sustainable and fair to everyone. Divorce mediation gives you a chance to take part in this process and contribute to making these important decisions.
