Role of the mediator vs. role of attorneys in divorce mediation

Our readers may know from previous posts here that divorce mediation may be a useful tool for many couples who are going through a divorce. There are many decisions that need to be made about their children, finances and other issues. Since, in most divorce cases, things are not going smoothly for the couple to begin with, addressing these issues can be difficult. But, a mediator may be able to help a couple reach agreements even in very contentious situations.

Establishing paternity is very important for unwed fathers

Children in New York are born into many familial situations. Some are born to parents who are married and sometimes the parents are not married. Being born to fathers who are not married to the mother does not mean that the fathers are not the biological fathers, but in order to be recognized as the legal fathers, they must establish paternity first.

Preparing to go to a child support hearing

There are many parents in New York who are not together with the other parent any longer. This could be because they are divorced or because they were never married in the first place. However, it does not matter why the parents are no longer together, both are still required to provide for their children. This is usually accomplished through a child support order.

Donald Trump Jr.'s wife received large inheritance before divorce

President Donald Trump is not the only person in his family who has been in the news in New York recently. His son, Donald Trump, Jr., has also been in the news because his wife recently filed for divorce. The couple has been married since 2005 and have five children together. They also are very wealthy and apparently his wife recently came into even more money after receiving a significant inheritance from stock her deceased father owned.

When divorce mediation may not be the best option

Usually there are a number of problems that arise before a couple actually decides to divorce and, once they do, in many situations there can be a lot of animosity between them. Even in these cases, the couples may still be able to reach agreements, but they may need the assistance of a third-party neutral mediator to assist them in a divorce mediation. This is an option for many couples, but there are certain situations when divorce mediation is not a good option.
