Financial Arrangements

The best financial arrangement

Divorce requires that the marital assets be re-allocated. Your mediator will assist you in determining the best financial outcome for each of you, by closely examining the future expenses of each party and that person’s ability to meet those expenses. We will examine whether support is required and, if required, how much support is needed. Mediation services are especially helpful in avoiding future disputes over money.

Your agreement will address these issues:

  • A change in support payments due to a significant increase or decrease in the income of one or both parties
  • Disagreement or need for negotiation of extraordinary expenses
  • Unexpected and uninsured medical expenses
  • A change in the premium cost for health insurance
  • Whether or not an annual cost-of-living adjustment will be included
  • Any future tax consequences based on the financial allocations
