One of the most important factors to consider as you and your spouse work toward establishing the terms of your divorce agreement will be the safety and well-being of your children. Protecting your rights as a parent and ensuring that the needs of your children are met well after the divorce has been finalized is what we do at O’Sullivan Law Group.
Our mediation group was created to handle cases in which both parties wish to amicably end the marriage and agree to cooperate on matters such as child support and custody. Under the guidance of a trained, qualified mediator, you will have the opportunity to resolve any differences between you and your spouse and come to an agreement on all important factors that will affect your lives moving forward; and you’ll be able to do so more quickly and affordably than traditional litigation.

Unlike traditional litigation, mediation provides a space to amicably discuss and constructively agree upon a child support agreement that works for both you and your spouse. During the mediation process, both parties will be given the opportunity to communicate their thoughts and concerns regarding the divorce, as well as who should be responsible for paying child support, and how this decision will ultimately benefit the children involved.

During mediation, these factors – as well any specific needs of your children – will be assessed, discussed, and factored into each parent’s financial ability to contribute. Once all aspects of the support agreement have been carefully considered, you and your spouse will work with the mediator to negotiate a final child support agreement.
