My midtown mediation practice guides and assists clients through their mediated divorce proceedings.
An experienced mediation attorney can be vital to your mediation experience. I can advise you of your situation as it pertains to the law. Understanding your legal rights can inform the settlement decisions you make in the mediation process.
Mediation provides a stable vehicle for divorcing couples approaching an uncontested divorce. These proceedings take place outside the jurisdiction of a court and allow the parties more freedom to negotiate.
Mediation helps divorcing couples reach settlement agreements of their own design and consent. This can be a huge advantage for couples with complex divorce settlements:
- Large property ownership
- “Cash” based businesses and income
- Career travel and child visitation
- Complex child support issues
- Insurance policies
- Unique lifestyles
These situations call for a more hands-on and detailed approach to reach the best settlement.
Legal Counsel During Proceedings
When serving as a mediation attorney, I stand by you during mediation negotiations and offer legal counsel during the proceedings. I can even be present during both joint and caucus sessions.
As a mediation attorney I advise on the legal ramifications of several negotiation issues:
- Property division
- Support issues
- Insurance and medical costs
- Custody arrangements
- Joint-debt management
Assistance with Legal Documentation
As mediation counsel, I assist my client during the mediation process and offer assistance with understanding the legal process. I will help modify property settlement and custody/visitation agreements and once agreements are reached.
I will assist in converting the agreement into a Judgment of Divorce by commencing a divorce action to incorporate the terms of the mediated settlement into the divorce decree.
