How Much Does it Cost to Mediate a Divorce in Nassau or Suffolk County?

Learn about our low-cost alternatives to divorce litigation

Mediation can be successfully performed in one to three meetings, after which your agreement forms the foundation for an uncontested divorce. Mediation is done with one paid professional, the mediator, rather than with two lawyers in litigation. The mediator's hourly rate is typically far less than an attorney's. Furthermore, in mediation, you and your spouse can speak directly in the same room and attempt to reason with each other. In divorce litigation, you speak only through attorneys who may have an interest in enriching their firms' banks accounts and prolonging litigation. You can control mediation and can listen to each other directly with the guidance and assistance of a mediator.
