Mediation

Divorce and Custody

Mediation can be the most direct way to sensibly resolve a family law dispute. Divorce mediation is often less stressful, less costly, and less damaging to family relationships than litigation.  Carton & Rosoff PC offers mediation services for divorce and the underlying family law issues.

Divorce mediation is a dispute resolution process in which you and your spouse meet with a mediator.  The mediator remains neutral and neither advises nor represents either party.  The mediator facilitates open and productive discussion so that the parties can fashion an agreement that serves their family.  Parties in mediation can retain attorneys to advise them so that the mediation sessions can be informative and productive.

What to Expect During a Divorce Mediation in White Plains

If you and your spouse can cooperate and communicate, divorce mediation may be your best option.  At our offices, you meet with a White Plains divorce mediator in a comfortable setting. Unlike formal and traditional divorce proceedings, the process is casual and designed to eliminate conflict and stress. Divorce mediation is often less expensive than a litigated divorce.

It is important to note that a main goal of mediation is cooperation rather than strategy. This is extremely important for child custody issues where the best interests of the child must be paramount at all times. Keeping disputes to a minimum reduces tensions between the parties. Another benefit of mediating a divorce is that mediation keeps your divorce out of the courts. Your discussions and arrangements remain private.

Once an agreement is reached, both parties review the document with their attorneys to ensure that there are no misunderstandings. Any issues raised by the reviewing attorneys are then referred back to the mediation.
