As a divorce attorney and psychologically-trained mediator, I am juggling
tons of emails and phone calls from clients divorcing and spouses thinking
of divorcing during the coronavirus pandemic.
These couples’ issues began way before the coronavirus and the complications
of marriage and divorce are not slowing down because of it.
There are some truly complex family law issues arising at this challenging
time where the strength of mediation can really help! As a mediator I
can facilitate discussions, encourage decision-making, and champion both
parties to be civil and productive about the following:
With schools enforcing quarantines and children schooling from home, parenting
plans are being disrupted. Who will take care of children? What will visitation
look like? Where will it occur? How will the transition for visitation
take place? Should a parent be allowed to take the children on a bus,
train, or plane? Which parent will decide? Mediation can help you make
life-saving decisions and answer all these questions.
Child and Spousal Support
With companies enforcing quarantines, some people will be paid while they
work at home—others will not. These imposed work conditions are
affecting family incomes. As a result, child and spousal support may need
to be adjusted. Productive discussions using mediation can help divorcing
couples arrive at fair and reasonable child and spousal support decisions.
If you own a business or work in industries suffering right now like restaurants,
bars, travel, movie theatres, hair salons, airlines, transportation, and
so on, division of property will be challenging. Bankruptcy may strike
many of these businesses. In addition, stocks have been hit hard and assets
and investment portfolios are affected. Again, mediation can help rationally
address these issues in the context of divorce.
Even with all the anxiety and uncertainty of everything going on around
us, everyday life is continuing and so must we.
With my assistance as a mediator, I can help you start a dialogue or continue
having a dialogue with your spouse about your divorce.
Mediation is more popular and more convenient now more than ever since
it is less expensive and can be done quickly. As the courts are closed,
you can get a divorce without an attorney or going to court.
So some of you are thinking, “ What is mediation, and how does it
