After parties have finalized their divorce, and as life goes on, circumstances may change in ways they never could have anticipated. Whether the economy, their careers, their child(ren)’s well-being and development or their private lives, any of these changes may give rise to the need to re-negotiate terms of their divorce.
For couples who mediated their divorce, their agreement may call for further sessions in order to address aspects of their arrangement that are no longer serving their needs. These people are already familiar with the benefits of a mediated conversation and wish to address a limited range of issues.
Couples who litigated their divorce may wish to try a different method, sitting down, instead, together with a mediator, to assist them in moving forward with modifications of the original terms. For these couples, the motivation may be to lower the temperature and save time and costs while, ideally, reaching a personally crafted compromise.
Family Mediation assists by helping the parties to understand their best options going forward and what aspects of their existing settlement may need to be modified. Thus, if a parent is relocating for work, planning to remarry or perhaps facing a financial setback, our post-divorce mediation services can help parties refine and improve their existing divorce settlement.
