Divorce Mediation: What Is It?
Many individuals who decide that filing for divorce has become their only viable option choose to utilize the services of a professional divorce mediator to help them resolve the outstanding legal issues necessary to complete the divorce process. By participating in mediation, the couple may avoid adversarial proceedings in court, and reach a resolution which will then be memorialized in a writing, called an agreement or stipulation. Divorce attorney Jane K. Cristal provides professional mediation and uncontested divorce services to individuals seeking marriage dissolution throughout Nassau County and the surrounding area.
Divorce mediation involves addressing the disclosure of all financial matters and encouraging open communication between the parties. This option is not for everyone but has important benefits for those who are able to participate in the process. Those who engage in mediation will retain more control over the outcome of their divorce than those who permit the court to be the ultimate arbiter where the court makes the final decisions. Further, cooperation between the two parties fosters a more peaceful ongoing relationship which generally benefits children.
