Divorce Mediation

Divorce Mediation is a voluntary alternative process our office offers to divorcing couples to resolve their conflicts while working together with a mediator/ facilitator in a non-adversarial setting.

Mediation is a method of alternative dispute resolution. It can serve as a substitute for our traditional court -based (adversarial law suit) process for settling legal issues that arise between parties.

The use and practice of Mediation has kept many conflicts out of the Court system. Mediation has also spared people in conflict from the potentially huge financial, emotional and time detriments experienced in our Courts. Mediation provides a safe-container to carry out a more civilized and equity-balanced process to reach agreement.

Today, the Courts struggle to truly meet the needs of individuals embroiled in legal disputes. There is a tendency for Court-based cases to be expensive, lengthy and lawyer-driven.

Mediation instead strives to be cost effective, be sensitive to the interests of all of the parties and be participant-driven.

In short, mediation is a method where reasoned parties can resolve their conflicts reasonably before a neutral guide.

The NY Courts have long recognized the value of mediation, but the bias and traditions of our legal system tend to send people to air their differences in Courts.

Now, however, our Courts are recommending and diverting certain cases out of the litigation system into mediation first. For example, the NY Family Court system is already requiring diversion of certain cases into Mediation.

If your case is being diverted out of the Court system into mediation, or if you are simply personally inclined to avail yourself of the benefits of mediation, then let the experienced attorney-mediators at our firm show you the mediated way to resolution. You will not regret leaving the Courts, judges and gladiator lawyers out of your dispute!
