What are the Steps to an Amicable Divorce® Settlement?
Step 1: Consultation by Phone- When you call to make an appointment, I’ll be there to answer your questions.
Step 2: Mediation Orientation – This face-to-face consultation will allow us to exchange information, identify your mediation goals, and determine which services best suit your needs. We’ll combine these into a customized package, so you’ll know up front what the process will cost and how long it will take.
Step 3: Individual Sessions – In accordance with the OAFM Standards of Practice, our next meetings will be Individual Sessions. Each spouse will have the opportunity to share information relevant to the mediation in private.
Step 4: Joint Mediation – We will work together to resolve each of your issues, and to reach your common goals: Generating options, making concessions, and finding common ground so you can come to mutually satisfying agreements. All your financial, support, and parenting decisions will be carefully documented and formalized.
Step 5: ‘Next Steps’ Meeting – FINAL Separation Agreement* – All your decisions and agreements will been bound into a formal Separation Agreement and hand-delivered. I will make sure you are clear on any next steps you need to take, including seeking and obtaining ILA** before you sign any legally binding documentation.
What Goes in a Separation Agreement?
A Separation Agreement* is a legally binding contract created between two spouses, at the time of their separation. This contract sets out each party’s rights on issues such as: Division of Property, Child Custody & Access, and Child & Spousal support. Once a Separation Agreement* has been signed and dated by the spouses and by a witness, it becomes legally binding.
What is an NFP?
When a marriage ends, the equal contribution of each person to the marriage is recognized by law. The value of any kind of asset or debt that was acquired by a spouse during the marriage and still exists at separation must be divided equally between the spouses. The payment made to effect this sharing is called an equalization payment.
