Why Divorce Mediation With Polly A. Tatum May Be The Best Way Forward

Put The Future Of Your Family In Your Hands, Not A Stranger’s

Divorce is always difficult, but it does not have to be full of fighting, extremely expensive, or toxic for children. Many people are under the misconception that in a divorce, litigation is the only answer, but this is actually not the case. Mediation – a common form of alternative dispute resolution that involves a neutral third-party – can help you and your spouse reach a mutually agreeable solution. You and your spouse will discuss the terms of your divorce with this mediator and submit a proposal to the judge. You do not have to go to court, and the process can be resolved more quickly, more peacefully, and less expensively than a traditional divorce. If you or your spouse want to remain amicable and if you share children, divorce mediation may be the best option for your family!

Polly A. Tatum has spent over 20 years guiding families in Worcester through the divorce mediation process, and has successfully mediated over 3,000 cases. She recognizes that one of the most important benefits of mediation is that you and your spouse will be able to make decisions about your family’s future – you won’t have to rely on a judge or court system that doesn’t know your situation and dynamics to decide for you. That’s why she focuses on ensuring a smooth mediation and empowering you to find the right solution, regardless of how challenging your divorce may seem!

Going into mediation was a very difficult step for my ex and I to begin. Polly was so easy to work with from the start and knew exactly how to approach and handle our personalities. She was very patient, empathetic, understanding, thorough and extremely knowledgeable. She broke the meetings in a way that was convenient to our needs and schedules. She addressed all of issues with custody, assets, and prepared us for our hearing. She gathered all the documentation needed for court date that was seamless. She was just outstanding during this difficult time and always answered any question or concern. She truly is looking out for both sides and has amazing personal skills to make this process as painless as possible. I highly recommend Polly if you need her services.

I am so grateful for the assistance we received after hiring Polly for mediation and divorce. She was professional in every way, making sure both parties were treated fairly. She walked us through every aspect of the divorce process, step by step, which alleviated a lot of stress during this trying time. Kathy was also such a great help and responded quickly to all questions and concerns.

Polly mediated our divorce with professionalism, fairness and care. She walked us through the process, which seemed daunting and overwhelming at first, while explaining the steps and facilitating important conversations about children and finances. Polly is excellent at what she does and I definitely would recommend to her to anyone.

My ex and I were amicable about our divorce but needed help to advise us on child support, 401K, and division of our assets. We decided to use Polly as our mediator to draw up our divorce agreement because we heard about her through some others who had used her. It was a long process but Polly broke it into sessions that were convient for us. She has all of the connections, knowledge, expertise and people skills necessary to give you the best possible outcome. Polly is very patient, caring, honest and straightforward. She also helped our daughter with her health care proxy now that she is 18. She described the court hearing process to us and gave us all the forms we needed to file step by step and she helped us fill out most of the forms. Polly was amazing through this very difficult & painful time. I highly recommend her for any divorce!
