Do I Need a Lawyer for Mediation in Nassau and Suffolk County?
Attorney and non-attorney mediators available to serve divorce clients
Mediation does not involve lawyering in the adversarial sense. There is no posturing. There is no opening statement, no questioning of witnesses and no closing argument. Instead, mediation involves a cooperative attempt to reach a meeting of the minds. Within the bounds of the law, you and your spouse can fashion the agreement you choose, an agreement that fits your lives and personalities. You can enter into a divorce settlement that is within your financial means and in the best interests of your children. At Solutions Divorce Mediation, Inc., we have both attorney and non-attorney mediators to guide you through the process, so you can obtain an uncontested divorce, saving plenty of time and money.
Divorce mediation is not about lawyering, but having a lawyer can help
Many clients seek our services because they don’t care for lawyers, legalisms or confrontation. They prefer to collaborate on even a complex mediation agreement, rather than engage in litigation. This is especially true for parents who are going to have an ongoing relationship with their ex and want to improve communication to make their future interactions a little bit easier. These clients often express that they would not like to work with an attorney at all, not even as a mediator. Fortunately, we are able to offer the services of highly-trained and qualified non-attorney mediators.
Other clients would just as soon have an attorney help them as long as they get the advantages of mediation: they want to control costs, reduce the amount of time the divorce takes and have greater control over the outcome. They also want the professional eye of an attorney reviewing their mediation agreement to make sure that it covers all the bases.
At Solutions Divorce Mediation, we want you to take charge of your divorce. However, you can rest assured that, even if you don’t go through the mediation process with a lawyer, your settlement will be legally sound. Our highly-trained mediators are determined to cover every area of contention to deliver a comprehensive settlement that the court can approve.
