Alimony Mediator

Alimony is the amount of money one spouse is either obligated or has agreed to pay their former spouse after the completion of a divorce settlement. This can be determined either by a judge when the couple takes part in a court proceeding to finalize a divorce, or it can be something agreed upon with the assistance of a divorce mediator. At AMS Mediation, we offer divorcing couples the chance to have more control over the results of your divorce than the courts can. Additionally, when you work with us, you will pay less than if you use lawyers to settle your divorce in court, and we will help you and your spouse get through the process with less stress and greater potential for reaching agreements that you can live with. Never is that more true than when determining alimony.
