When going through divorce mediation, specific issues such as alimony (spousal support), child custody, and child support often require careful consideration.

At Resolvium Divorce Mediation, we understand the importance of addressing these matters with care and compassion. 

In this blog post, we’ll explore how mediation can help couples navigate alimony, child support and custody issues, fostering peaceful resolutions and minimizing conflict.

Understanding Alimony Mediation

Alimony, also known as spousal support, is a crucial aspect of many divorce settlements.

What is Alimony?

 

Alimony refers to financial support paid by one spouse to the other following divorce or separation. Its purpose is to address disparities in earning capacities and maintain the standard of living established during the marriage, particularly for spouses who may be economically disadvantaged post-divorce.

The Role of Alimony Mediation

Our mediators help couples navigate alimony negotiations by facilitating open and honest discussions about financial needs, earning capacities, and lifestyle considerations. Through mediation, couples can work together to find fair and sustainable solutions that meet the financial needs of both parties.

Factors Considered in Alimony Mediation

  • Each spouse’s income, earning capacity, and financial needs

  • The length of the marriage and standard of living established

  • Contributions to the marriage, including childcare and homemaking

  • Health, age and employability of each spouse

  • Any other relevant factors unique to the couple’s situation

Understanding Child Support Mediation

Child support is a fundamental obligation that ensures children’s financial needs are met following divorce.

What is Child Support Mediation?

Child support mediation is a voluntary process where parents work with a neutral mediator to negotiate and reach agreements regarding child support payments.

The Role of the Mediator

In mediation, our focus is on creating child-centered solutions that prioritize the well-being of the children involved. Our mediators help parents determine child support amounts, considering factors such as income, expenses, and parenting time arrangements. By working together, parents can develop a child support agreement that meets the needs of their children while promoting cooperation and mutual respect.

Topics addressed in Child Support Mediation

  • Determining the appropriate amount of child support based on factors such as income, expenses, and parenting time.

  • Establishing payment schedules and methods.

  • Addressing any special or extraordinary expenses related to the children’s needs, such as education, healthcare, or extracurricular activities.

Benefits of Mediation for Alimony, Child Support, and Custody

Mediation empowers couples to make informed decisions about alimony, child support, and custody arrangements, rather than having decisions imposed by a judge.

Mediation offers flexibility in crafting agreements that are tailored to the unique needs and circumstances of the family, allowing for more creative and personalized solutions.

Mediation proceedings are private and confidential, providing a safe space for families to discuss sensitive issues without fear of judgment or public scrutiny.

Mediation is often more cost-effective than litigation, saving couples time, money, and emotional stress associated with court proceedings.
