Our Family and Divorce Mediation Services
Qualified Family Mediator
Divorce is one of the most emotionally painful life experiences anyone can go through. It affects your entire family, and can have a lasting impact on everyone involved. On top of that, it can have a lasting financial impact with several court visits, leaving you high and dry with nowhere to turn. Our divorce mediation services can help prevent a trial from happening. The state courts typically drag out the process, with the potential of your case not being solved for a few years. We want to help you avoid all that trouble by deciding everything with your spouse in a controlled, confidential environment. Not only does this ease the divorce process, but it creates less animosity between you and your spouse, giving you the potential for a better quality relationship going forward, which is especially important if you have children. Below, you will find some divorce mediation services we offer to people in the Rochester, NY area.
Child Parenting Plans
We will help you and your spouse choose from several custody agreements. One option is sole legal custody, giving one parent all legal rights to the child. Another option is physical custody, or even a shared parenting plan. Whatever the best scenario is, we will help you find it.
In Rochester, NY, both parents are financially obligated to support their children. Child support is strictly a financial matter, and is set up on a case-by-case basis. However, parents can still provide emotional, physical and intellectual support to their children. In all likelihood, a child will not know about or not pay attention to the financial support you may be providing for them in this difficult time, so these other means of care are very important. Our family mediation can help in this area.
Alimony and Spousal Maintenance
In many cases, one spouse will be legally responsible to provide financial support to the other. The purpose here is to secure a proper economic balance between both parties, being sure to avoid unfair financial ramifications throughout the divorce process. Note that alimony is usually at the discretion of the state court.
Separation of a couple means the two partners are still legally married. However, the legal agreement will lay out the rights and responsibilities for each partner. This can mean child support, child custody, property division, spousal maintenance and more.
In a situation of uncontested divorce, we will help both parties reach an agreement before going to trial. Uncontested divorces have a tendency to move at a fast pace, and is a significantly smaller financial burden than a divorce that goes to trial.
Distribution of Assets and Liabilities
As part of the mediation process, we will help you distribute property and debt. It’s important to keep in mind that divorces that go to trial rarely end in a 50/50 split, as it’s difficult to know what the state court will do.
