One of the primary benefits of settling your divorce using mediation is that it lays the groundwork to make any additional necessary changes after your divorce is final. When you initially settle the important terms of your divorce such as how to equitably divide your property and how to structure your child custody agreement, you have no real way of knowing what the future holds. You make the best possible decision with the information that you have at that time. But, as time passes after your divorce is finalized, life may change – for example, you or your ex-spouse may be required to relocate, you may get a new job or remarry. The fact is, your needs and the needs of your ex-spouse and your children may change over time. If you find yourself in a situation where you need to modify your mediation agreement, AMS Mediation can help.
Do You Need to Change your Mediation Agreement?
AMS Mediation specializes in helping families navigate the entire divorce process, including post-divorce support. Establishing an ongoing relationship with a trusted mediator can help you and your ex-spouse solve issues that come up after divorce in a fair, reasonable and efficient way.
If you and your ex-spouse happen to agree to the changes to your mediation agreement, the modification process is fairly simple. However, even if you and your ex have different ideas on how best to resolve the issue that comes up, mediation sessions can help you find areas of compromise and ultimately land on a solution that puts your family first.
The alternative to using mediation to modify your mediation agreement is to go to court, which can be extremely expensive, emotionally taxing, leaving you at the mercy of the court system and their schedule. The court system is simply not structured to be able to handle each and every post-divorce mediation modification. The mediation process empowers you and your ex to find a solution that works best for all involved.
