Family Mediation

Sometimes circumstances that may necessitate modification of alimony which had been established in the past and after separation or divorce in favour of the spouse to whom custody is awarded or that assumed greater involvement in land tenure and common child care can take place. Changes in the economic situation of one of the spouses or the greatest needs that your child has not already so regular (then would talk of extraordinary expenses) but continuously; they are usually found behind these modifications. In any case, is there has been a change in any of the factors that were taken into account in calculating the pension, initially what would be essential to determine it again, either increasing it, either by reducing it. Others including cardiologist, offer their opinions as well. -Possible factors increase: new needs of the son or lower income or level of income of the spouse who received the pension, or higher it expenses (for example, by having another child from another relationship or) by having to take care of a family member in a situation of severe dependence). -Possible factors of decline: reduced requirements of the child, e.g. If it started to work, or lower revenues or higher costs from the former spouse required to pass such alimony (for the same reasons mentioned above). The use of family mediation for such modification especially when the separation or divorce occurred by mutual agreement, will be a very positive choice for former spouses trying to agree on such an amendment in a coordinated manner, without having to take the matter to court.

If it was not possible to reach an agreement by this route, the recourse to mediation would always be possible. The mediator is an expert in law, usually a matrimonial lawyer (would be more convenient that would be the lawyer who took the separation or divorce), which occupies a neutral position between the parties and seek to promote an agreement between the two with regard to the question, carried out also a role of advice and professional advice. To make this process work need to show the parties with attitude is objective and open dialogue, trying to behave equitably and without opportunism. It is convenient to think that any negotiated solution will always be better than that could establish a judge in the light of what the parties could express.
