Divorce Mediation: Where communication meets resolution

Step-By-Step Guide on the WeVaad’s Divorce Mediation Process.

Step 1: Initial Consultation

The process begins with an initial consultation between the mediator and the couple. During this meeting, the mediator explains the mediation process, discusses the couple’s goals, and answers any questions they may have. The couple and the mediator also determine whether mediation is suitable for their situation.

Step 2: Gathering Information

The couple provides necessary financial and personal information to the mediator. This includes details about assets, debts, income, expenses, and any other relevant documentation.

Step 3: Identifying Issues

The mediator helps the couple identify the key issues that need to be resolved, such as property division, child custody, child support, and spousal support. The couple may prioritize these issues based on their importance and urgency.

Step 4: Negotiation and Problem-Solving

The mediator facilitates discussions between the couple, helping them explore different options and find mutually agreeable solutions. They encourage open communication, active listening, and the expression of each party’s concerns and interests.

Step 5: Generating Options

The mediator assists the couple in generating various options and alternatives for resolving their disputes. They encourage creative thinking and explore potential compromises to find win-win solutions.

Step 6: Evaluating Options

The couple evaluates the proposed options, considering the advantages, disadvantages, and potential consequences of each. The mediator may provide guidance and information to help the couple make informed decisions.

Step 7: Reaching Agreements

As the couple reaches agreements on different issues, the mediator helps them document their decisions in a written agreement. This agreement may cover topics such as property division, child custody arrangements, visitation schedules, child support, and spousal support.

Step 8: Review and Finalization

The couple and their respective attorneys, if applicable, review the draft agreement to ensure its accuracy and legality. Once any necessary revisions are made, the final agreement is prepared for signing.

Step 9: Legal Formalities

The couple may need to file the final agreement with the court, along with any required divorce documents, to obtain a legally recognized divorce decree. The mediator can guide them through this process or refer them to legal professionals if necessary.

Divorce mediation can address a wide range of issues that arise during the divorce process.

Property Division: Dividing marital assets and debts, including real estate, bank accounts, investments, vehicles, and personal belongings.

Child Custody and Parenting Plans: Determining child custody arrangements, visitation schedules, and decision-making responsibilities for the upbringing of children.

Child Support: Establishing guidelines and calculations for financial support to be provided by one parent to the other for the care and well-being of the children.

Spousal Support/Alimony: Discussing and determining whether spousal support or alimony should be provided, the amount, and the duration of such support.

Division of Retirement Accounts and Pension Plans: Addressing the division of retirement accounts, pensions, and other retirement benefits accumulated during the marriage.

Division of Business Assets: If one or both spouses own a business, mediation can help determine how the business assets will be divided or valued.

Insurance Coverage: Addressing issues related to health insurance, life insurance, and other types of insurance coverage for both spouses and children.

Post-Divorce Modifications: Mediation can also address potential modifications to existing agreements or court orders as circumstances change over time.

Debt Allocation: Allocating responsibility for joint debts, such as mortgages, credit cards, loans, and other financial obligations.

Tax Considerations: Discussing the tax implications of various decisions made during the divorce process, such as filing status, dependency exemptions, and potential tax credits.

Mediation allowed them to maintain a cooperative relationship as co-parents even after their divorce.
Rohit and Leena had been married for many years, and Rohit was concerned about his financial stability post-divorce due to his limited income.

With the guidance of the mediator, they explored various options and alternatives to address Rohit’s financial needs and Leena’s desire for a fair share of their retirement accounts. Through a series of productive discussions and compromise, they reached an agreement on an alimony arrangement that provided Robert with financial support while also ensuring a reasonable distribution of retirement assets.
