Agreement Resources, LLC has been providing divorce mediation services since 2004 (offering both solo and co-mediation). We understand how difficult the divorce process can be and specialize in Making Hard Conversations Easier.™

Our divorce mediators help you to:

* Identify the topics you need to discuss in order to navigate the divorce process.
* Consider and discuss your goals, needs, interests and options.
* Have productive conversations to:

1. Divide assets and liabilities,
2. Build a durable parenting plan,
3. Consider spousal and/or child support,
4. Identify how to maintain health insurance, and
5. Discuss tax topics related to your divorce.

At the end of the process, we prepare a clear and comprehensive document reflecting the decisions you and your spouse have reached.

Our mediators focus on ensuring that each of you is heard and understood. We help you gain clarity on what is important to you, so that together you can craft your own workable solutions, customized to your needs and informed by Massachusetts guidelines. And since spouses sometimes move at different paces when making decisions regarding divorce, we help create a process and timeframe that is comfortable for each of you.
