What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce Mediation provides a neutral place for couples to have difficult conversations in a supportive environment.
Mediation is a process where divorcing couples work with a neutral co-mediation team consisting of two Mediators who function as neutral third parties. The Mediators help couples by facilitating conversation, assisting with communication and understanding, and helping couples navigate all issues required to be addressed in order to get a divorce in Massachusetts.
If agreement is reached in all areas, the Mediators can draft a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) encompassing all the couple has agreed to in their own words (A Memorandum of Understanding is not a legal document). The MOU can be taken to an attorney who can utilize it to create a Separation Agreement.
Family Service of Central Massachusetts is committed to providing services to the Worcester community regardless of income.
