Mediation and Collaborative Law

Westchester Mediation and Collaborative Law Attorney

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

In Collaborative Law, the negotiations are done almost entirely in four-way meetings attended by both clients and their attorneys. This mode of communication maximizes creativity, transparency, and accountability. Collaborative law frequently involves the use of experts such as counselors, psychologists, real estate appraisers, and business valuation specialists.

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 or collaborative law can help your family to work constructively through a divorce or separation.

Experienced, Quality Divorce Mediation and Collaborative Law

Collaborative law and mediation techniques are informal, empowering, and forward-looking. The process encourages teamwork to resolve disputes.

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

Matters that can typically be resolved through divorce mediation or collaborative law include:

Our Family Fighting for Yours

Mediation and Collaborative Law encourage 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 or collaborative law 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 mediation or collaborative law, contact our firm’s mediation and collaborative attorney at our offices in Mount Kisco or White Plains to schedule an initial consultation. We serve the mediation and collaborative law needs of matrimonial and family law clients in Westchester and Putnam Counties.
