Orchard Park, NY Divorce Attorney
Every divorce is difficult, and each is difficult in its own unique way. Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman LLP is proud to offer divorce attorney services to those going through tough times in Orchard Park, NY. Our skilled lawyers can help you with both fault-based and no fault divorces. The first step in the process? Consulting with your divorce lawyer to determine whether you need to pursue litigation, or whether mediation is an option for you and your spouse.
If at all possible, mediation should be your first choice when divorcing. This is because it takes less time, it's less expensive, and it's less stressful. Divorce mediation is commonly used for couples who have an amicable divorce, or minimal assets and debts to divide. During mediation, a neutral third party - your divorce lawyer - will consult with both sides in the hopes of finding a mutually beneficial deal. Your mediator will require that you disclose all debts, assets, and incomes, so they're able to help you reach an impartial solution. Divorce mediation is also popular among parents when child custody isn't being contested, as it lets the parents decide how best to raise their children, instead of leaving it in the hands of the court. If at all possible, most clients opt for mediation before turning to litigation.
Litigation is the more severe of the two options, and in many cases, is a last resort. If you choose litigation, each party will need to be represented by their own divorce attorney. The two lawyers will attempt to negotiate a deal before heading to court, as a trial can be time consuming, stressful, and extremely expensive. If a deal can't be hashed out, your divorce lawyer will help prepare you for the emotional rigors of going through a divorce trial. They will stand by your side and ensure that you achieve the best result possible through this difficult time.
