Preparing to Mediate Financial Issues
Well before mediation, you should gather documents that will be helpful to your divorce or family law attorney, and the family law mediator, in preparing the financial portion of your case. Be prepared to provide any of the following documents in your possession, as well as any other documents your divorce attorney may request, including:
Prior to mediation, you also should prepare yourself by looking at your financial needs, ideally by preparing a rough budget, so you can negotiate in an educated manner about issues such as spousal maintenance, child support, apportionment of children’s expenses, property settlement payouts, and the like.
These are just a few of the many issues that may arise during your mediation session. Consult your counsel for more details about your particular case.
Preparing to Mediate Child-Related Issues in Indiana
Aside from the specific parenting time schedule upon which you will agree, there are numerous parenting issues that may be appropriate to address in your mediated agreement. To ensure that you do not leave out any essential issues, make a list prior to mediation of the parenting issues you want to address. Some examples that may apply to you include:
In your particular case, it may not make sense to address some of these specific issues in your written agreement. However, it always makes sense to raise issues about which you are concerned so that the family law mediator, counsel, and both parties can fully address and make decisions about anything that might arise.
