How Can a Mediator Help?
If you are going through a tumultuous divorce, you may be asking yourself, “How can a mediator help?” Divorce mediation is an alternative to litigation that can be less expensive and contentious. New York divorce mediation is a process whereby the parties work with a mediator or mediators who help them reach an agreement. A mediator does not decide matters for the parties or offer an opinion as to what the end result should be. Rather, a mediator outlines issues and helps the parties to arrive at their own resolutions. Here is some more information on the role of a mediator.

A mediator should not provide legal advice to either party, nor can a mediator provide the in-depth individual advice that each party needs to successfully complete the mediation process. But since you are negotiating terms that will greatly impact the future of your home and family, you should have a professional advocate whose job it is to look out for your interests. Our Saratoga County attorneys have had great success “coaching up” clients so they are ready for negotiations and can capably make informed decisions.
