If you search for mediation Topsfield MA you will find mediator Erica M. Foster attorney at law. Erica M. Foster is a licensed mediator in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts who has been practicing and specializing in family law for more than 20 years. In our offices we understand the sensitive nature of legal proceedings involving family members and we offer mediation so you have guidance and options for setting realistic goals, making informed decisions, and moving forward to a new chapter in your life. Our mediation services are available for all types of family law cases including but not limited to divorce, custody, visitation and parenting plans, child support, asset division and alimony.
Mediation is an informal, voluntary, flexible process where a neutral person – the mediator – helps you negotiate. Mediation encourages the parties to be attentive, respectful and honest with one another. My role as a mediator is to work with both parties while you speak directly to one another about your goals and interests and to help you reach an agreement that both of you want. As a result, your communication with the other party may improve, you’ll save time and money, and you’ll avoid the difficulties and uncertainty of the court process.
With mediation, you decide how much or how little time you want the process to take.
Mediation is billed by the hour and is much less expensive than going through litigation. My hourly rate is $300.00. Most sessions, with the exception of the introductory meeting, are two hours and you can expect to spend at least three to five sessions to resolve the matter. With mediation, you pay as you go and do not need a retainer.
