In most situations, there is no reason to begin the divorce process in the Courts. Even when parties do not at first agree with one another, I believe that couples should be given the chance to work out their differences through direct negotiations. I will work patiently and cooperatively with you and your spouse to identify conflicts and issues. Given the proper environment with a highly experienced, skilled and neutral professional who is familiar with the law and the issues, a fair settlement can usually be reached without the stress, high cost, and long delays that come with a contested divorce case in the Courts.

Divorce mediation should be your first option, assuming you don’t need immediate judicial assistance. With my vast experience as a practicing matrimonial and family lawyer and extensive background in social work, I can offer you the unique professional guidance that you need to reach a fair settlement that is right for you and your spouse.

As a neutral, third party New York divorce mediator and attorney, I can help you try to reach a mutually beneficial agreement on the issues of: child parenting arrangements, child custody, child support, maintenance (formerly alimony), spousal support, equitable distribution, division of money and property, and apportionment of debt. The goal is to avoid going to Court until these and any other issues are resolved by you and your spouse. Once that happens, the case can either be settled by a written separation agreement, or presented to the Court as an uncontested divorce, without the need of a Court appearance by either you or your spouse in most instances. This process is much quicker and more affordable than a typical contested divorce and allows you to simply move on with your life.

To maintain an even-handed approach to communicating with you and your spouse, I prefer to meet with both of you in the free initial consultation and all mediation sessions. If you are interested in trying mediation with my firm, or about the have questions about the mediation process, please be sure to call my office, or feel free to send me an email.
