Some perceive the divorce process to be a combative and an all-or-none game focused on selfish needs and 'punishing' the other spouse. The reality is that most New York couples that chose to divorce want a stress-free and communicative experience that is fair to both parties. There is a better way for real couples to proceed with divorce in a way that keeps everyone's sanity intact. It is called mediation and it is a method that can cover issues such as child custody and asset division.
Divorce mediation is a dispute resolution process in which you and your spouse meet with a mediator. The mediator remains neutral and does not advises or represent either party. The job of the mediator is to facilitate an open and productive discussion so that the parties can fashion an agreement that serves them and any family members involved.
