The range of cases that we send to mediation is broad. The issues are varied. The complexities and emotional level are also quite varied. Over the course of the past 20 years, I have found more and more of my clientele asking to go to mediation, and that has even further broadened the type of cases that we send out. Unless domestic violence is an issue, every case can start in mediation. Not every case will finish there. It may prove to be too difficult, but it is usually worth trying.

Divorce mediation is an alternative to litigation that can be less expensive and contentious. New York does not require that spouses mediate or arbitrate their divorce or separation issues, but does allow the mediation process to supplement or bypass the litigation system.
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.
