Orchard Park, NY Divorce Mediation
At Pusatier Sherman Abbott & Sugarman LLP, we understand how difficult it is to go through a divorce. You're fighting with someone you once loved, stressed about a blurry future, and struggling to get through day to day life without worry etched all over your face. Instead of worrying about a potential trial, you should consider hiring a divorce mediation attorney. An excellent mediation lawyer in Orchard Park, NY, is the difference between a divorce that only takes a few months and one that drags on for years.
What is a Mediation Lawyer?
A mediation lawyer is an unbiased third party that comes into a divorce and attempts to get both parties to come to a mutually beneficial agreement - without resorting to trial. Think of them as your guide through this trying time - they'll be able to provide quality advice and keep the divorce moving forward in a productive manner. As they have no affiliation with either spouse, a mediation lawyer will be able to ensure a healthy and productive experience. Ultimately, you and your spouse will be in control of your own fates - you won't be leaving it up to the court to decide who gets what.
What Can a Divorce Mediation Attorney Do?
Your mediation lawyer's primary objective will be to help you and your spouse find common ground - what can you two agree on when it comes to this divorce? From that starting point, they will help you negotiate through the rest of the divorce. If you have children, this is critical, as you and your spouse will be able to decide what's best for them, rather than leaving it in the hands of a judge, who may not do what either of you want.
Your divorce mediation lawyer will also ensure that there is complete transparency between you and your spouse. They will require you both to disclose all assets, debts, income, and current payments. At the same time, that transparency comes with a measure of privacy you won't find during a trial - any dirty laundry won't be aired in front of a court room. Mediation takes place completely behind closed doors.
