When both parties agree to utilize the services of a mediator, they may avoid the adversarial proceedings of court. Our Nassau County divorce attorneys at Jane K. Cristal, P.C. offer "uncontested" divorce and mediation services to clients throughout Long Island and surrounding areas. Mediated divorces are not ideal for every couple as they require honest disclosure of financial issues and a willingness to engage in open communication with the other party.
During an initial consultation, our team at Jane K. Cristal, P.C. assesses whether your divorce case fits the profile of couples likely to be successful using mediation.
When a married couple resolves to divorce amicably, they often consider mediation. If the couple chooses mediation, they will meet with the mediator; however, neither party will be represented by counsel. The mediator will provide information concerning the law, process, and procedure in a neutral setting and will facilitate the negotiations and discussions between the husband and wife.
All legal aspects of a divorce will be addressed, including issues relating to child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, visitation, and property division. In the event of an impasse, the divorce mediator will draw upon specialized techniques and methods to work through the difficult issues and assist the parties in arriving at a Settlement Agreement.
