MISSIOn divorce mediation

Since 2000, Judith R. Kaplan has been providing quality and personalized Massachusetts divorce mediation services to families. Her mission is to help clients minimize the financial and psychological impacts of separation and divorce. She listens, facilitates communication and organizes the divorce mediation process to minimize stress and the feeling of helplessness that often accompanies the daunting separation and divorce process. Clients will discuss their goals and the short and long term implications of different options during divorce mediation sessions. She helps couples identify and resolve issues involving: parenting challenges, child support, legal custody, alimony, mortgage refinancing and basic tax considerations as they pertain to property and debt settlements. Ultimately, she seeks to empower each couple to make their own decisions and own their personalized Massachusetts divorce mediation agreement. This requires consistent communication and timely responses to her clients’ inquiries and concerns.
