For as much as Rob and I enjoy facilitating the discussions that happen in the mediation setting, there is the occupational hazard of being “the messenger.” While we all have had the opportunity to see divorces play out in literature and on the silver screen, these are fictionalized versions of what amounts to be the “contract for the dissolution of marriage.” Rob and I are oftentimes the very first people to broach the very real matters of the division of marital assets, child support, and alimony. These topics are tough: no wonder why authors skip over these or Hollywood prefers something sexier.
Regardless of the inclination to avoid wading into these conversations, as your mediators, we are there to guide you through exactly those tough discussions. Along the way, you’ll get legal information to help you decide what a judge will most likely deem as “fair and equitable under the circumstances.” Additionally, you’ll be given support in having fruitful communication so that your discourse can be both structured and beneficial.
While we are regularly the bearers of not-so-glad tidings when it comes to the intricacies of divorcing, Holistic Mediation takes this role of with both seriousness and solemnity. We believe that in order for our clients to feel positively about the process of mediation that they need to be fully informed so that they can fully participate.
