A Certified Mediator Who Can Help You Resolve Disputes Civilly
Divorcing couples are increasingly seeking to end their relationship in a civil fashion. If there are minor children involved, the parties understand they will most likely continue working together at parenting, albeit in different residences. Some have coined this concept of a more amicable split the “good divorce.” Gwyneth Paltrow famously called the end of her relationship a “conscious uncoupling.”
Whatever term is used, more couples are opting to work through their divorce without litigating because it makes good sense. Getting through divorce amicably often means using a neutral mediator to help resolve issues such as custody, child support, spousal support and the equitable division of marital property. At Talmud Law, our founder is a divorce attorney and certified mediator who works with couples in the Buffalo-Niagara region who wish to keep things civil as they end their relationship.
Understanding The Mediator’s Role
When serving as a third-party mediator, our attorney helps both parties in a divorce understand New York statutes as they apply to custody, support and other matters. She works with couples who have legal representation as well as parties who are not represented by an attorney. Her goal is to lead you step-by-step through the process in a manner that is more efficient and far less costly than litigating.
Ms. Talmud will inform you of New York laws as they apply to the issues you are trying to resolve. If necessary, she can call in specialists such as business or real estate valuation experts, child psychologists or others who will provide clarity and help disputing parties negotiate an agreement.
Our lawyers also review agreements that have been drafted by other lawyers or mediators. If we review a proposed agreement that does not seem to be in your best interest, we will notify the attorney who drafted the agreement about our reservations and recommend changes.
