Worcester Family Law Mediation Attorney

Helping You Resolve Complex Issues through Alternative Dispute Resolution - Call (508) 219-6264

Many people are under the misconception that when seeking a divorce or dealing with another family-related matter, litigation is the only answer. Fortunately, this is not the case. Mediation is a common form of ADR (alternative dispute resolution) which is recognized for its ability to guide two disputing parties towards reaching a mutually agreeable decision.

Mediation is much less contentious than litigation, which is an excellent benefit if you and your spouse wish to remain amicable or if you share children. At The Law Office of Polly A. Tatum, our Worcester family law mediation attorney can help you deal with your complicated family law issue without going to court.

Reach out to us today at (508) 219-6264 for more information.

Why Choose Divorce Mediation?

Mediation allows two disputing parties to meet with a third-party mediator who is neutral and unbiased. The two parties can then discuss the terms of their divorce, such as which party will keep the house or a proposed custody schedule. After the entire divorce agreement (or separation agreement) has been negotiated and agreed upon, a proposal is drawn up and submitted to the judge.

There are many benefits to using mediation to sort out family law issues, such as:

  • It is less expensive than litigation
  • It allows you to maintain your working relationship
  • It is easier for your children

Perhaps most importantly, mediation does not involve a judge; instead, you and your spouse or ex-spouse will be able to make decisions about the future of your family that are best suited to your unique situation and family dynamic.
