Divorce Mediation


Divorce Mediation

While divorce is always difficult, LMI Mediation services allow couples to determine the terms, within legal requirements, of their divorce and separation agreement through a process that is not rife with acrimony.  Rather through the mediation process the couple sets the terms of the agreement and thereby find a path that works for them, on their schedule, and usually, at a more affordable cost.  The mediation process allows the parties to work through critical topics related to divorce in Massachusetts, including division of assets, custody of children, parenting time, health insurance, and alimony.  LMI Mediation Services are available in Burlington MA, with easy access from I-95, and working with affiliates and using temporary office space, LMI is available in various locations in the Boston metro area, including Arlington, Boston, Cambridge, Norwood, Somerville, and Salem.

Family Law Mediation


Family and probate law is so much more than divorce law.   Families and individuals often end up in conflict over many issues which can either be solved by lawyering up, or by seeking to find a better way through mediation.  Therefore we also help parties resolve conflicts involving:

  • Unmarried Parents
  • Post-Divorce Mediation
  • Change in Child Custody
  • Change in Child Support
  • Children’s activities
  • Educational Costs
