You may think once your divorce is finalized, all your troubles will be over. Unfortunately, while this is possible, it is rarely true. Life after divorce is uncharted territory for most couples, and if things go wrong, it can be a troubling time. This is why we extend our services to offer mediation post-divorce to all our clients. If we help you through the divorce process and settlement and things go wrong later, we are still here for you.
What Sort of Issues Can Require Mediation After Divorce?
There are three key areas where post-divorce mediation may be needed: child support, parenting/timesharing, and alimony. Each of these is an innocent enough term that conceals the possibility of further upset and dispute.
With child support, circumstances can change, and the child support arrangement may need to be modified or enforced. So, just when you thought it was all settled, there are things that need to be dealt with between you and your former spouse. This can create tension that can easily grow into hostility. The terms and amount of child support may have already been agreed but if, for some reason or other, they need to change or one party is not abiding by the agreement, further resolution may be needed. As certified mediators, our attorneys are trained to help both parties reach an agreement as amicably as possible.
It's a similar situation with parenting. The issue of custody will have been decided, but if one party is not sticking to the agreement or circumstances have changed, you may need us to intervene on your behalf. Relationships with our children are so important, but sometimes, ex-partners can find it extremely difficult to negotiate with each other. Using a suitably qualified and experienced attorney for post-divorce in Miami can help you achieve the right result without uncomfortable meetings and discussions.
Alimony can also be a potential flashpoint. If one party’s circumstances change, for the better or the worse, renegotiation may be needed. It is such a sensitive subject that working with a lawyer who offers mediation after divorce can be necessary to achieve a satisfactory conclusion for both parties.
