Divorce Mediation

      Let's Talk: 978-674-8530

You don't have to wait to move forward in getting divorced using divorce mediation as opposed to litigation during this Coronavirus Pandemic.  

Many people are wondering if they have to put off their divorce due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.   

Why do some people think this you ask?   Well, the reasons could be vast, but largely it comes down to the following:

Maybe its because they don't know that divorce mediation can be done virtually or in person in a safe setting with masks while also using social distancing.

Maybe its because it is a tough topic with many emotions attached and they fear taking on such a life stressor during an otherwise already stressful time in dealing with the Coronavirus pandemic.  

Maybe its because they fear the costs involved during a time when people are furloughed from work, have been laid off, have lost their jobs or need to be home tending to their children's care and education needs instead of being at work. 

Whatever the reason for delay, there is no reason to put it off, you can divorce now and begin your life's next chapter!

Divorce Mediation in MA can safely proceed during Coronavirus

Divorce Mediation

You don't have to wait to move forward on your divorce during this Coronavirus Pandemic.  

Adhering to social distancing during this time remains crucial. In person divorce mediation sessions are now being done virtually and still allows the couple wherever they may be to see the Mediator and the divorcing couple to use one or two computers.

Much can be said about the way facial expressions show our emotions, so have no fear that the Mediator won't be able to detect emotions and feelings. 

Mediating a divorce through virtual divorce mediation sessions is just as effective as having a session in person. 

We already work via email and snail mail to acquire educational materials, financial statements and back up financial documents.

The chief component of mediation is neutrality, which remain intact with virtual divorce mediation sessions taking part with both individuals and the Mediator(s).  Emails are sent to and from both spouses and the Mediator. 

Confidentiality remains intact.
