Unlocking Divorce Mediation: A New York Perspective

In New York State, an increasing number of divorces are finding resolution through mediation—a collaborative process where couples work with a trained mediator to amicably resolve their issues outside of court. Here’s why mediation might be the right path for you and your spouse:

1. A Collaborative Approach: Mediation fosters cooperation and communication between divorcing spouses, providing a constructive platform to negotiate and reach agreements on key issues without resorting to costly and emotionally draining court battles.

2. Cost-Effective Solution: Compared to traditional adversarial legal representation, mediation is a more affordable option. With zero court appearances and less ancillary paperwork, couples can save significantly on legal fees while expediting the divorce process. Mediation is done in hour long sessions and most cases can be fully resolved in 2-4 sessions, depending on the complexities of the issues.

3. Expert Mediation Services: At Zimmer, Mathiesen & Associates, our divorce attorneys are certified mediators who act as neutral third parties to facilitate fair and reasonable agreements between spouses. We ensure that your final divorce agreement complies with New York State law and is properly drafted to avoid future legal complications.

4. Tailored Guidance: Our experienced mediators guide you through the negotiation process, addressing crucial issues such as custody, visitation, property division, child support, and spousal maintenance. We help you explore all available options under the law to find solutions that best suit your unique circumstances.

5. Swift and Amicable Resolutions: Through mediation, spouses can achieve swift and amicable resolutions, sparing themselves the stress and uncertainty of a drawn-out contested divorce. With our guidance, you and your spouse can develop arrangements for child custody and visitation that prioritize the well-being of your children.

6. Empowering Decision-Making: Mediation empowers spouses to make informed decisions about their future, considering the long-term financial and personal consequences of their choices. Our attorneys assist in navigating impasses and finding creative solutions to complex issues that arise during the mediation process.
