The FIT Divorce Mediation Program

Divorce mediation is a highly effective way to resolve disputes. Amaral & Associates, P.C. was founded by an experienced divorce mediator and
attorney who was tired of seeing families torn apart, both emotionally and financially, by the contested and insanely expensive divorce process. His goal is to make getting a divorce more dignified, yet do so in a quick, simple, and inexpensive manner. At the same time he wants to focus on preventing a permanent wedge from developing between spouses to the detriment of their children, which frequently occurs in a contested divorce case. Amaral’s fresh approach to divorce mediation and his innovative style, led to the creation of his FIT Divorce Mediation TM flat fee program.

FIT stands for Fast, Inexpensive and Thorough and Amaral has empowered hundreds of couples to settle their divorces and other types of family law matters through this program and previous programs created by him.

  • Only with your permission will we contact your spouse to perform a separate consultation.
  • The cost is $1,500 per spouse, which includes three (3) hours of face to face mediation time with the parties, plus the time it takes to prepare a comprehensive marital settlement agreement and divorce filing together with your financial statements.
  • Amaral’s overall goal is to see that the parties not waste their time and money on attorneys, but instead, use their savings to benefit their own lives and that of their children.



Perform Your Mediation

  • Amaral will then lead a discussion of all issues associated with your divorce or other family law related matters and enable you and your spouse to settle your case.
  • Together we will work out a fair and thorough agreement during your face to face mediation sessions.
