Mediation & Collaborative Law Attorney in Boston & Wakefield
As your mediator, we will act as neutral third party between you and your spouse in hopes of finding an acceptable resolution to your family’s dispute. The clients make the ultimate decisions, as the mediator encourages open and honest discussions in order to facilitate the negotiation. We will ultimately prepare your final agreement and court filings.
The collaborative law process will allow the couple to work with their lawyers and other family professionals such as family therapists, child specialists and financial experts. Using a team approach, all individuals will work together in order to avoid the uncertain outcome of court and to achieve a settlement that best meets the specific needs of both parties and their children without the underlying threat of litigation.
What is the difference between a mediator and collaborative law?
A mediator is a neutral attorney who helps guide clients to an agreement but does not represent either party or make decisions for them. In Collaborative Law, each party is represented by an attorney who is present at all negotiation meetings in a team setting and approach.
