Below is a sampling of divorce mediation testimonials from clients of Massachusetts family and divorce mediator, Tracy Fischer.
It went just as Tracy said and the judge granted the divorce. A lot of the people who went before us were having such drama there! It was nice that we were not hostile with each other. It was a pleasure to work with Tracy, and if I ever have the chance to recommend a mediator to someone else, I’ll definitely recommend Tracy.
I just wanted to pass along that the judge was very impressed by how well our divorce was put together and how easy it was to follow, so kudos to you Tracy!
I would recommend Tracy to anyone who is considering mediation. She was extremely professional, compassionate and kept our sessions on track. She listened attentively to the needs and views of both sides. Her mediation skills were impressive. Although mediation didn’t work for us, it was certainly through no fault of Tracy’s. I would highly recommend Tracy Fischer Mediation.
I was referred to Tracy as an alternative to reduce uncessary cost with a traditional divorce. Working with Tracy took the emotion out of the process & allowed us to focus on what was important. She kept us on track which set the tone for working together to raise our daughter in a more team like fashion. I would recommend Tracy & mediation to anyone who is looking to come to an agreement with difficult matters! In fact 15 years later I have continued to refer her! She is very professional, completely unbiased & just perfect in her line of work!
Tracy is a compassionate, thoughtful, visionary mediator who can take couples at the most vulnerable point in their lives and get them to do something they never thought they could do together: reach a fair and reasonable settlement to their divorce. I’ve been fortunate to have sent friends and clients to Tracy, and amazingly, they have come away from the experience with a greater respect for one another, and an enduring admiration for Tracy’s approach and devotion to the collaborative task of “smart divorce”. Everyone who has reached that emotional Waterloo should be so lucky to have Tracy as their backstop.

Tracy helped make a painful experience bearable. She’s kind and supportive, but keeps you moving forward and focused on the next steps. She was so easy to work with. I felt wisely guided throughout the process.

We are very thankful for all the help and guidance Tracy provided us during this difficult time. Tracy worked with us by explaining our options, answering all our questions, providing us with all the proper paperwork and walking us through each step of the court process. By doing so we were able to understand what was going on in something we knew nothing about. We went to court this morning and they accepted the paperwork and granted the request. It has been a pleasure working with Tracy. We will highly recommend Tracy’s mediation services.

The judge asked all the things you had told us she would ask, and agreeably noted that child support would extend longer than usual (we told her the children had disabilities), asked about my health insurance, and that was it. She signed the QDRO and we got certified copies.
The judge asked if we had had help preparing the agreement and we gave her your name.
In the middle of looking over the agreement, she looked up at us and said “you have done a very good job.” The credit goes to you for helping us work out an agreement that was fair to both of us, in the midst of a lot of conflicting emotions. I personally really appeciate your patience.
We also appreciate the ways in which you tried to keep costs down, keeping things moving at a good pace, sometimes even when I was slowing things down.
We were very happy with your services, in the midst of a complicated and challenging situation, emotionally and financially.
I was a former client of Tracy Fischer’s about 10 years ago when my ex-wife and I were divorcing. We found her mediation services invaluable. As a matter of fact, our divorce judge commented that my ex-wife and I were one of the most amicably divorced couples with which he had ever dealt! I have since remarried (about 5 years ago), but we have continued to implement the mediation agreement successfully—our kids are now in high school and will be off to college in several years.
I am so grateful to you for everything. I cannot imagine having gone through this painful process without you. You’ve actually done more for me than you know. It is certainly true that I have grown in this process. I do know that, for sure. But, I also know that none of it began until I met you. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you. You have been instrumental … KEY, in fact, in helping me move forward and get to a place where I actually feel good about myself … maybe for the first time. I’m not afraid of everything anymore and I’m actually looking forward to the future. Thank you Tracy.

“I feel our divorce would have been much more costly if we had chosen the adversarial route”
“Many of us know when we have gone long past the time that we are aware that there is no reconciliation of our marriage and do nothing about it. I finally decided to do something about my situation.I did some homework.I asked questions.I read information about divorce on the web.I found someone who provided me with advice about how a divorce process works using a Mediator (with or without an attorney!)I contacted Tracy Fisher, Divorce Mediator for an appointment and I couldn’t be happier.”
“My spouse and I met with Tracy for a complimentary informational session.As soon as she described the mediation process, I asked her several questions and hired her, (my spouse hired her as well).At this same meeting, we made arrangement to receive the information based on the specific mutual decisions relating to our divorce.At the second meeting, we walked out of Tracy’s office with the tools, instructions, and paperwork necessary to proceed on our ownAfter reading, reviewing, copying, signing, getting notarization, we filed the paperwork with the court. Thanks to Tracy, it was a very easy process and I knew what to expect because Tracy had explained everything.”
“After about three and one-half minutes that included a few questions from the judge, I walked out of the court divorced. I remember getting into my car, paying the parking attendant the $8.00 fee and thinking that I feel just like that woman on the IKEA television commercial who runs out of the store, to her car because she believes a big mistake was made… thinking to myself… this was too straightforward. All the issues that were important to each of us were specifically addressed in the Separation Agreement that Tracy prepared for us – Thank you!”
