Divorce Mediation Experts in Suffolk County
Looking For a Divorce Mediation Lawyer in Suffolk County?
In New York State, a growing number of divorces are resolved through the mediation process. Divorce mediation is a process where divorcing couples voluntarily collaborate with a trained mediator to negotiate and resolve all of their issues without the traditional, adversarial process of obtaining a divorce through the court system. If you and your spouse are capable of maintaining a respectful and constructive exchange of communication, mediation may be the appropriate option for you.
Mediation is a viable alternative to the costly and emotional process of traditional, adversarial legal representation where the parties battle out all of their issues in court. The mediation process is an inexpensive method in comparison to other divorce methods. As the mediation process is generally faster and the parties are able to save money due to the fact that there are no court appearances involved and there is less ancillary paperwork, which in turn reduces legal fees. Additionally, the parties only pay for the cost of one mediator, as opposed to two separate attorneys with one for each individual spouse.
