Divorce Mediation Services
WESTCHESTER AND NEW YORK CITY DIVORCE MEDIATION ATTORNEYS
Mediation is a private, solution-focused alternative to divorce litigation. Like Collaborative Divorce, mediation offers parties a non-adversarial resolution process in an informal setting. Mediated divorces can be significantly less expensive than litigated divorces, and the mediation process maintains confidentiality regarding the intimate details of parties’ lives. Our legal mediation services also give couples greater control over the outcome of their divorce.
In mediation, divorcing couples meet for a series of 90 minute to two-hour sessions with a neutral mediator who guides their conversation and helps the parties engage in a constructive dialog. While the mediator is often a family lawyer with extensive experience in divorce, his or her role is not to act as a lawyer to either party. Rather, the mediator helps both spouses identify and resolve their respective concerns and arrive at a fair and mutually beneficial divorce settlement. Parties are encouraged to work with their own consulting attorneys as part of the mediation process.
BRINGING PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE TO DIVORCE MEDIATION
Our founding attorney Katherine Eisold Miller is a leading authority among New York City and Westchester County mediation attorneys in the areas of mediation and Collaborative Divorce. She routinely teaches courses for attorneys and other professionals on the subjects of Collaborative dispute resolution and mediation, and has done so since 2006.
While divorce is always difficult, mediated divorce provides the following advantages:
- It can improve the communication between you, your spouse and your children.
- It can be significantly less expensive than going to court.
- It allows you and your spouse to take control of your futures in a more comfortable environment.
- It usually takes less time than litigation.
- It is noncompetitive and confidential.
In addition to family law issues, our law firm offers mediation for a variety of sensitive issues that clients may face, including probate, trust, elder law and business disputes. We work to help our clients find reasonable and mutually advantageous solutions to disputes without harming the underlying relationships involved.
