Worcester Divorce
Mediation Lawyer

Helping You Reach Personalized & Agreeable Family Resolutions

Divorce is never easy, even if you were the one to initiate it. However, this does not mean that the divorce process needs to be a difficult, contentious, and drawn-out battle. Mediation offers divorcing or separating couples the opportunity to create a custom divorce agreement that is tailored to their unique goals. The process is based on communication between the two parties, facilitated by a third-party mediator and, in some cases, other professionals. Unlike in traditional divorce proceedings, mediation does not require you to rely on an impartial judge to rule on the various terms of your divorce, including alimony, child custody, and child support.

Mediation puts the power back into your hands. At The Law Office of Polly A. Tatum, we assist individuals and couples navigating the family law mediation process. Whether you are concerned about where your child will live or need to make

Compassionate, Client-Focused Mediation Services

At The Law Office of Polly A. Tatum, we understand just how difficult it is to face any legal family issue. Often times, there are intense, conflicting emotions at play. Parents may strongly disagree about matters of child custody and support. Separating spouses may be concerned about how their shared assets will be divided. This is normal, but that does not mean that you will have to face a long courtroom battle to resolve these issues.

Our firm offers empathetic legal counsel, coupled with a realistic and unbiased approach to mediation. We are here to serve as a caring but objective third party. This allows us to help you and your ex-spouse or partner reach various agreements on the terms of your divorce or separation while keeping your best interests and the best interests of your children and family in mind.

We encourage you to reach out to us at (508) 219-6264 to discuss your situation with our experienced Worcester divorce mediation attorney.
