If you are considering a Family Mediator to help you and your partner separate or divorce, the first step is making an appointment with the Divorce Mediator. At Divorce Mediation Advisors LLC, we currently offer 1/2 Hour initial consultations with couples at no charge. This FREE meeting is a great way to meet your potential mediator and to obtain information about the process.
First, you will have an opportunity to meet the Divorce Mediator. It is important that both parties are comfortable with the Mediator’s personality and communication style. If there is something that you do not like about the mediator in the first session, it is possible that these feelings will persist and fester as the mediation process progresses. Therefore, it is important to make sure you are confident in the Mediator’s ability to help you and your partner to arrive at consensus. You should be comfortable with the Mediator’s personality, communication style, attitude, knowledge, and ability. At Divorce Mediation Advisors, our mediators are knowledgeable, patient, respectful, and will always listen to you with an open mind. We are confident you will be pleased with our staff’s professionalism and aptitude. We do our best to provide a comfortable and professional atmosphere for our clients.
At the consultation, the Divorce Mediator will tell you about himself or herself and about the process. After you listen to an overview of the process, you will have an opportunity to ask questions. This is probably the most important part of any consultation – getting your questions answered. At the conclusion of the consultation, the Family Mediator will provide you with some materials. Some of the documents are informational and are meant to provide you with important information regarding the process and divorce issues. You will also be provided with a Mediation Agreement – this agreement sets forth the confidentiality of the sessions, the fee structure, and the terms and conditions of working with Divorce Mediation Advisors LLC. You are not bound to working with DMA once you sign the agreement. As a matter of fact, either client can stop the mediation process at any time without any further commitments or obligations. Finally, you will be provided with a financial questionnaire to fill out and send to your Family Mediator before your first session. In order to help you make decisions on property division, child support, spousal support/alimony, and other important issues; the Divorce Mediator needs this financial data so she can discern what property there is to divide, what debts have to be dealt with, what each party’s income looks like, and what the current and future expenses hold for each client.
Please call us today and book your FREE 1/2 hour initial consultation. Attending this important meeting is the first step in taking control of your future and making a sound decision to attempt to settle your divorce in a cooperative setting.
