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

  • I found Polly to be very knowledgeable and professional, but also very sensitive to the personal and emotional side of divorce.

    “In my search for a divorce lawyer, I interviewed several candidates. When I met Polly, I knew she was the right person for my situation. I found Polly to be very knowledgeable and professional, but also very sensitive to the personal and emotional side of divorce. Polly helped me understand my rights and guided me through the process as painlessly as a divorce can be. Even though the lawyer on “the other side” was difficult, Polly remained supportive and professional. We are nearly done with the divorce, and the impact on my kids has been minimal and my relationship with my ex-wife is cooperative.”

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.
