Divorce cases and other family law disputes are often well-suited for mediation. A form of non-binding alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that emphasizes collaborative divorce negotiation, mediation can help people work towards an agreement outside of court. Some issues that can be resolved in mediation in Newburyport include:

      • Stubborn Spouse: Getting divorced is even more difficult when you have a stubborn or otherwise unreasonable spouse. While a stubborn spouse can often derail the mediation process, there may still be a path forward.
      • College Expenses Disputes: It is not uncommon for separated parents to get locked in disputes over college expenses. Our Newburyport mediation attorneys can help you work toward the right solutions.
      • Child Custody Disputes: No parent wants to put their child in the middle of a conflict. These cases are often well-suited for mediation. Our Newburyport mediation lawyers have extensive experience with custody and visitation cases.
      • Marital Home Issue: One of the most challenging aspects of a property division case is deciding what to do with the marital home. Our Newburyport mediation attorneys can help you and your former partner work towards a solution.


Our law firm puts an emphasis on helping clients work towards amicable solutions in family law cases. The vast majority of clients desire an efficient, low-conflict settlement. That being said, an agreement is not possible in every divorce and family law case. As our Newburyport family lawyers are trial-tested, we are always prepared to litigate your case.
