Mediation is a useful alternative to litigation. It can resolve traditional legal disputes, but it does so in a manner that is much less expensive and less aggressive than litigation. Most importantly, this approach leaves room for couples to set a positive tone for moving forward to a future where they will continue to work together as co-parents. The Law Offices of Eyal Talassazan, P.C. has extensive experience in the courts here in Garden City and the greater New York City area, but we often find that mediation and uncontested divorce work well together. Contact a seasoned divorce mediator from our firm so we can get started working on your case.
Divorce can be a stressful and overwhelming experience, both legally and emotionally. That’s why you need a divorce mediator who can apply empathy and experience to this challenging transition. A divorce mediator is an impartial third party who enables communication and negotiation between you and your spouse with the aim of helping you achieve a mutually-beneficial agreement on issues such as child custody, child support, alimony, property division, and more. Mediators aren’t always attorneys, but they often are. Our Garden City divorce lawyer has mediated countless divorce cases over the years, so you can have peace of mind, knowing your case is in good hands.
Generally speaking, the two sides come to the negotiation table with the mindset that they want to resolve outstanding issues rather than escalate. Either an impartial mediator works with the couple alone or the couple is accompanied by their individual lawyers. This can be done to settle all outstanding issues, or done in conjunction with litigation to resolve as many issues as possible before going to court.
There are various reasons why mediation can be beneficial for resolving divorce agreements and other family law issues, including the following:
Mediation isn’t appropriate for all family or legal situations, particularly in cases where there is domestic violence. However, smart couples also understand that the expense of a messy divorce leaves less money for the family as well as the upcoming expense of college tuition for the children. Each case is unique, but we often find that the pros outweigh the cons.
If you feel mediation may be right for you, please don’t hesitate to sit down with a seasoned mediator and discuss your options. The Law Offices of Eyal Talassazan, P.C. has well over a decade of experience guiding clients to amicable compromises, and we are here to help you as well.
