How Does Divorce Mediation Work in NY?
If you are going through divorce in New York, mediation may be a good alternative
to litigation in instances where neither party has a significant advantage
in control or power over one another. A mediator will work with you and
suggest certain approaches that you should take to come to conclusions
with your spouse.
The mediator will need to be fully informed of the facts of your case in
order to best mediate the dispute. They may provide general legal information
during this time that may help with your case. The mediator can help each
spouse to outline their “needs and interests.” They will also
assist in negotiating a settlement that is acceptable to both parties.
Benefits of Divorce Mediation vs. Litigation
In Long Island, divorce mediation is a favorable option for many reasons.
First and foremost, divorce mediation can be much more cost effective
than litigation. When a divorce case heads to court, as is the case in many
contested divorce cases, the legal costs can quickly add up. By reaching agreements quickly,
both parties can save themselves a great deal of money. Time is another
factor that makes mediation a desirable choice. While divorce cases heard
in court can take many months or even a year or more to resolve, divorces
cases that can be settled through mediation typically takes much less time.
Another positive aspect of mediation is that it doesn't involve a judge.
When a divorce case is litigated in court, the judge will make all decisions
in regards to property division, spousal support, child custody, and any
other areas of the divorce. In mediation, the parties have control over
how these issues should be settled, giving them the opportunity to work
toward reaching an agreement without interference from a judge. Additionally,
studies have shown that parties who use mediation to resolve their divorces
are more likely to comply with a child custody or
visitation arrangements, and are more likely to pay child support and alimony.
