Information on Divorce Mediation

By Meyers Law Group  Nov. 1, 2010 1:15p

When a marriage ends, one of the most beneficial ways to go through the legal process is through divorce mediation. If both spouses are amicable and can agree between themselves the terms of their divorce, they can avoid prolonged litigation, expensive legal costs and can choose the terms of their divorce.

The only guidance they need then is from a Long Island mediation attorney who can guide them through the legal steps required to file for divorce and to ensure that both parties are protected and legally bound to the terms they decide together. Since a mediator does not represent a single party, he or she can represent a fair middle ground where decisions can be made without suspicion of animosity or greed.

Mediation is completely voluntary and will only continue if both parties agree to its continuance. Otherwise, the mediator cannot force either party to attend meetings or make decisions. The benefits are enormous however when a couple is agreeable towards each other even in divorce. Special terms such as visitation, child and spousal support, and the division of property can all be decided by the spouses and guided by a professional, fair legal mediator instead of being entirely decided by an impartial judge who will usually focus solely on financial stability of each spouse.
