Mediated Divorce

Westchester Mediation Attorney

Divorce Mediation is a constructive, non-adversarial process in which an impartial third party assists the divorcing couple in reaching an informed, mutually agreed-upon settlement of terms in a divorce or separation.

Although this option of dispute resolution in the context of divorce has been around for many years, it is becoming increasingly popular.  One of the main benefits to Divorce Mediation is that the divorcing couple retains control over the process and decision-making.  Because the couple is actively involved in the process, it is often less expensive and takes less time than a traditional adversarial divorce.

At our boutique matrimonial and family law firm, Gravett Law Firm, P.C., we provide a safe, relaxed setting for airing grievances and resolving problems. We ensure that spouses’ needs are communicated to each other in a fair and reasonable manner, emphasizing the greater good of the entire family, rather than the satisfaction of any one person.

Contact our lawyers to determine if mediation can help your family to work constructively through a divorce or separation.

Experienced, Quality Divorce Mediation

Mediation is informal, empowering, and forward-looking.  The process encourages teamwork to resolve disputes, and is less emotionally damaging to families.

Our mediation attorney’s role is to promote joint decisions and mutual agreement. Mediation discussions are conducted in a calm, civil atmosphere that encourages rational behavior and reasonable solutions.

Matters that can typically be resolved through divorce mediation include:

Divorce without Remorse

Mediation encourages a team approach and a spirit of cooperation that can set the stage for amicable attitudes and civility in the future, for the sake of your children. It also gives you, not a judge or court, control over the decisions that affect the lives of those closest to you.

This process is less expensive than acrimonious divorce litigation, takes less time, and emphasizes a hopeful future rather than dwelling on mistakes of the past.

Studies have shown that mutual compliance and client satisfaction with agreements reached through mediation are noticeably higher than disputes settled by third parties in a strained courtroom atmosphere. If you think that you and your spouse are good candidates for divorce mediation, contact our firm’s mediation attorney at our offices in Mount Kisco or White Plains to schedule an initial consultation. We serve the mediation needs of matrimonial and family law clients in Westchester and Putnam Counties.
