Nassau County Mediation Lawyer

Divorce and family law matters have a reputation for being incredibly tedious and sometimes messy. If spouses or any parties involved in a divorce are misrepresented by an inexperienced or uncaring divorce lawyer, the results could be both chaotic and unfavorable.

Fortunately, there may be a way for separating couples to avoid the negative repercussions of a divorce. Mediation is a common option that many individuals in New York seek during divorce. To determine if mediation is the best legal option for your personal circumstances, consult a Nassau County divorce attorney from Darlene T. Treston, Attorney at Law.

Benefits of Mediation in Divorce

Compared to costly divorce lawsuits that have the potential to escalate into heated courtroom arguments over things such as child support and custody, third-party mediation is often a more amicable way to execute a divorce. Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution, in which parties can solve problems or conflicts with the help of a professional mediator who can guide the parties during mediation sessions. Benefits of mediation:

  • Gives couples a quick way to resolve their disputes outside of court and in confidence
  • Saves couples time, money, and energy
  • Allows parties to remain on good, amicable terms
  • Allows parties to express concerns and solutions in a non-adversarial environment
  • Allows parties to come to an expressed and mutual agreement
  • Allows parties to discuss creative solutions, rather than prescribed rulings from a judge
  • Allows parties to remain in control of their divorce by using collective problem-solving methods
  • Settlements and agreements made between spouses in mediation are typically upheld much longer than official rulings made by the courts

Instead of parties being focused on trying to put the other spouse down in order to win a case, both can work together constructively to reach a mutual agreement. Mediation can be used to find an agreed-upon solution for a variety of divorce and family law related matters, including property distribution, child support, child custody, visitation, or even spousal support. Speaking to a lawyer from our firm can help you learn what to expect during the mediation process.
