News and insights about divorce and family law in New York.

Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation stands out as a voluntary alternative dispute resolution, offering divorcing couples a departure from the conventional court proceedings. This approach prioritizes a less adversarial and more cost-effective resolution, emphasizing compromise to settle the dissolution of marriage.

In the typical divorce mediation scenario, a mediator facilitates discussions between the divorcing partners to reach agreements on crucial issues. These encompass, but are not restricted to:

• Distribution of property
• Custody and visitation arrangements, if applicable
• Child support or maintenance, if applicable
• Retirement benefits
• Tax considerations

The advantages of opting for divorce mediation over the traditional courtroom divorce are numerous. One notable benefit is the expeditious resolution, often achieved within weeks rather than months or years. The swiftness of mediation translates into substantial savings, with couples avoiding the significant costs associated with prolonged attorney fees. Families often prefer mediation due to its reduced contention and stress compared to court proceedings, fostering the preservation of familyrelationshipsand minimizing emotional strain on the involved parties. Moreover, mediation affords a level of privacy that is absent in public court records, a particularly attractive feature for families dealing with sensitive matters, especially those involving children.

When it comes to selecting the right mediator for your family, careful consideration is crucial. An ideal mediator possesses knowledge in family law, is approachable, and adept at providing clear, straightforward answers to questions. The mediator's ability to defuse conflicts and steer discussions toward constructive solutions, rather than assigning blame, is paramount. Ultimately, choosing a mediator with whom both parties feel comfortable significantly streamlines and smoothens the mediation process for all involved parties.
