What is Mediation?
Mediation helps people in conflict who have difficulty resolving the dispute on their own. Divorce mediation in particular also ensures that spouses are meeting the requirements of their state to be granted a divorce. The mediator functions as a neutral facilitator of the conversation between two or more people in conflict. Mediation is designed to help foster open and effective communication, improve understanding of everyone's interests and points of view, and generate solutions that satisfy all parties.

Divorcing couples in Massachusetts can divide their property on their own, or they can leave it up to the court, who will divide all the property equitably. When dividing marital property, courts consider such factors as the length of the marriage, the conduct of the spouses, the occupation and income of the spouses, their employability and the opportunity for each spouse to acquire property in the future.
