Carton & Rosoff PC-Attorney at Law

Resolving disputes creatively

Divorce issues may be resolved through divorce mediation

Mediation is one of the better ways to solve a family law dispute. Divorce mediation in New York and elsewhere is not only less expensive but also less stressful. It may also result in less emotional damage for the divorcing spouses.

Carton & Rosoff PC understands the value of divorce mediation and our experienced attorneys are able to resolve family law disputes deftly. In the divorce mediation process, the attorneys meet with a mediator. This individual does not advise or represent any spouse. Rather, the mediator encourages an open discussion so that the spouses can come to an agreement about any family law dispute. In these mediation sessions, a spouse can seek the help of an attorney, who can provide guidance so that the mediation sessions are more productive.

In fact, Carton & Rosoff PC attorneys can provide valuable advice on family law disputes concerning property distribution, divorce and separation, alimony, child support, child custody and pre and post-nuptial agreements. Deciding on alimony or spousal support may be an important element of divorce. After all, during the entire duration of a marriage, a wife or a husband may have depended on their partner's financial contribution. It may be important for the partner who depended on the other spouse to maintain their financial stability after getting divorced.

However, if both partners had been independent, there would be no need for spousal support or alimony. Courts in the country, including New York, consider several factors such as the spouse's income and property, marriage duration, earning capacity of the partner, the presence of children and wasteful spending of assets by the spouse, before ordering spousal support. It can be better to resolve divorce issues through the divorce mediation process and in the presence of an astute attorney.
