Should I Hire a Nassau County Divorce Mediator?
Divorce is never easy. If you and your spouse cannot agree on the terms of your divorce, such as child custody, spousal support, and more, there is a very good chance your divorce will enter the litigation process. Generally, when this happens, the terms of your divorce will be decided in court, by a judge. Oftentimes, this process leaves spouses feeling as though they have little to no control over their assets and the outcome of their divorce, which can be very frightening. Fortunately, you may circumvent this process through divorce mediation. Please read on and speak with our experienced Nassau County divorce mediator today to learn more about the mediation process.
What is a divorce mediator’s job?
Divorce mediation exists as an alternative means to turn your contested divorce into an uncontested divorce, all while outside of the courtroom setting. A divorce mediator’s job, essentially, is to listen to both you and your spouse’s desired terms for divorce, and from there, facilitate a civil, productive conversation regarding the terms of your divorce.
You should keep in mind that a divorce mediator is a neutral, non-biased third-party who will not pick sides. If all goes as intended, after one or more sessions of mediation, you and your spouse will have reached a successful compromise. Many spouses prefer this method of resolving a divorce to litigation because they feel as though their voice was truly heard, thus making the outcome of the divorce far easier to accept. When you reach a compromise, your mediator will draft a Separation Agreement, which you may then use to finalize the terms of your divorce.
What are some of the benefits divorce mediation has to offer?
Divorce mediation offers various benefits to spouses who are capable of working together. As stated above, one of the biggest benefits is that it takes place outside of a courtroom setting. Not only does this oftentimes decrease the hostility of the situation, but it also saves you both time and money, as the litigation process can drag on for months, or even years.
Additionally, conducting your divorce through mediation sessions is oftentimes less painful for your children, who should not be subjected to the hostility often found in the litigation process. Instead, this will help teach your children that it is always important to be courteous and civil, even when you do not agree with another person. If you and your spouse believe divorce mediation may work for you, please do not hesitate to reach out to our compassionate, knowledgeable, and disciplined firm. We are here to help.
