Why choose divorce mediation in MA? Because the smart way to get divorced in Massachusetts is to choose the process that is faster, lower cost and provides the best chance for a satisfactory outcome. That process is divorce mediation.
The other way to get divorced in MA is for each spouse to hire their own divorce lawyer to go to court for them. When a divorce attorney litigates a case the first meeting is typically a multi-hour client intake session. The second meeting is likely focused on assembling multiple years of historical financial documents that must be exchanged between the parties pursuant to court rules. The third meeting is likely focused on completing the court required multi-page Financial Statement that must be exchanged between the parties pursuant to court rules. In divorce litigation, little real progress toward final resolution is typically made during the first 3 months. Even worse, the whole divorce process can take as much as a year. Sometimes even longer.
Divorce mediation often goes much differently and much better. During the first session, we make real progress towards resolving issues. In every divorce mediation session you will usually see things moving forward. A majority of divorce mediation cases go from start to finish in less than 3 months.
By choosing divorce mediation, you will get through the often-stressful process of divorce in less time, pay less money and have a greater chance of getting an outcome that works for you. This is why divorce mediation in MA is how smart people get divorced.
