Post-Divorce Mediation

Things change. And when they do, your divorce agreement might need to change, too!

post-judgement mediation.pngIt’s been some time since you mediated your divorce with us, and circumstances – financial or otherwise, may have changed for you or your ex. You want to modify your divorce agreement, but you don’t want to have to go back to court and spend a fortune or years of your life fighting things out.

Mediation provides the perfect forum for your post-divorce issues and disputes…without having to go back to court or involve lawyers.

  • Modification of Child Custody, Parenting Plans and Timesharing Arrangements;
  • Modification of Child Support and redistributing ordinary and extraordinary expenses;
  • Modification of Alimony / Spousal Support / Maintenance.

No matter what the circumstances, mediation is the best way for you and your ex-spouse to discuss, modify, negotiate and resolve your post-divorce issues in a peaceful, cost-effective and solutions-oriented environment.

There are two things you and your ex need to know about about our Post-Divorce Mediation Services:

First, mediation is a voluntary process.

That means you and your ex-spouse must BOTH be willing to use mediation to work through  your differences. If one of you wants to mediate, but one of you doesn't, mediation will simply not be a viable option.

And second, only former clients of Equitable Mediation are eligible to use our post-divorce mediation services.

If you did not originally mediate your divorce with us, we will be unable to assist you with your post-divorce matter.

 

Costs:

This consists of:

  • A single, two to three hour session provided the parties are cooperative; and
  • An hour for document review; and
  • An hour or two for drafting, review and modification.

Keep in mind that this will vary depending on complexity and cooperation level by the parties.

Post-judgment mediation is billed at $190 per person / per hour.

How to Get Started with Post-Divorce Mediation:

If you and your ex-spouse would like to begin working with us, we would ask you to complete the Intake Form below.

The information you provide will not be shared with anyone outside of our office. This is our way of beginning to learn at a high level, an overview of the issue(s) you'd like to revisit.

After you submit the completed Intake Form, we will email you our Hourly Agreement to Mediate. It will be sent to you first and once you sign, it will automatically be emailed to your ex-spouse for him/her to sign.

Note: If your ex-spouse is not aware of your desire to return to mediation, please do NOT fill out the Intake Form below until you have spoken with them and they are in agreement about mediating.

Once both of you have signed the Hourly Agreement to Mediate, we'll be in touch to let you know what information we need from each of you and/or some prospective dates/times to schedule your session.

Mediation sessions take place via phone and our easy-to-use online meeting software. Sessions are held weekdays during normal business hours. Some evening appointments are available if you live on the east coast or in the mid-west.
