Resolving disputes creatively

Helping couples reach agreements in divorce

There are many reasons that people in New York go through divorces. There may be infidelities by one of the spouse, there could be emotional or physical abuse, substance abuse issues or the couple may simply no longer love each other and need to end the relationship. However, no matter why a couple may divorce, there is one thing in common in most divorces: the couple is no longer getting along with each other. This can make the divorce process much more difficult and contentious.

Many people do not want a long, drawn out divorce that ends with a judge making all of the decisions for the couple. However, these same people may not want to agree to the terms of the other spouse. This puts them in a difficult position of feeling like they need to either agree with the other spouse's demands or go to trial with a judge.

There are options which fall in the middle of the two extremes. One of these options is divorce mediation. This is a process in which the couple meets with a third-party neutral mediator who can help assist them in their attempts to reach agreements. During the process, the mediator will help facilitate negotiations and discussions. Mediation can be an effective tool to help the couple reach agreements on all issues of a divorce, including child custody, child support, alimony, property divisions and any other issues that arise.

Many couples in New York have used divorce mediation and have been able to reach agreements through the process. Mediators are trained in all areas of family law, as well as how to facilitate discussions even in contentious and complex divorces. At Carton and Rosoff, we have many years of experience in both family law and providing mediation services.
