Mediation clients here have the advantage of learning our own Collaborative Mediation process that builds trust and long-term negotiation skills. They will frequently work with our Certified Divorce and Financial Analyst to learn what their current net disposable monthly income is after payment of expenses and all taxes, including any family support, as well as deducting their real estate taxes, mortgage interest, personal and head of household exemptions on their Federal and State Income Taxes.
As clients move into their 50s and 60s, future cash flow including pension, retirement incomes, Social Security, investments, cash, dividends and interest are calculated so that, if desired, clients can know their cash flow even into their 90th decade!
All marital assets acquired since the beginning of the marriage, all real estate, vehicles, cash, investments, retirement plans, other employer plans, and household goods will be equitably divided.
Parenting plans are custom designed with flexibility and comfort in mind for both children and parents. Where there is a will to frequent access to one another, there is a way. Parents can see their children every day of the week if indicated, especially at the beginning of the restructuring of the family.
Our clients present the judge with a court-ready Mediated Separation Agreement, after a review attorney for one or each of them reviews the document.
