Niagara Falls, NY Divorce Mediation
Going through a divorce may be one of the most difficult things you'll do in your life. It's a time of high emotions, high stress, and high cost - both mentally and financially. It's like every day you're walking around with your own personal rain cloud following you. While nothing will make separating from your spouse a painless process, there are options to make it less painful. One of those options is hiring a divorce mediation attorney to help guide you and your spouse through this difficult time.
What is a Mediation Lawyer?
A divorce mediation attorney is a neutral third party that will try to get you and your spouse to come to an agreement without going all the way to trial. Both you and your spouse must agree on your divorce mediator. At Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman LLP our divorce attorneys are trained to remain completely unbiased, and will ensure that both you and your spouse are able to work together in a productive manner, no matter the nature of your divorce. With a mediation attorney guiding you through the divorce process, you can ensure it remains as healthy, productive, and collaborative as possible. Also, when you use a divorce mediator, you remain in control of your fate - you're not leaving things such as child care and spousal support up to the courts to decide.
What Can Your Divorce Mediation Attorney Do?
Essentially, your mediation lawyer will work with both parties to help find common ground and work towards finding mutually agreeable terms. This has far reaching implications, not only for your divorce, but for the relationship after your divorce. This is particularly important if you and your spouse share children, as you'll have come to an agreement on what's best for them, instead of leaving it up to the court.
By acting as a neutral party, and by acting without judgement, your divorce mediation attorney will keep your stress levels down, and has the ability to inform you of the legality of your decisions. They will also require complete transparency - all assets, debts, income, and current payments will be exposed. Finally, and for some, most importantly, using a divorce mediator is substantially cheaper and less time-consuming than heading to trial.
