Choosing a Long Island Divorce Mediation Firm

Finding the ideal Long Island divorce mediation company can seem overwhelming, exhausting, and stressful. What do separating couples need to know when choosing who is best to guide them through this difficult time? When looking for a divorce mediator, consider:

Effective Listening

Effective listening is the first step in a less adversarial divorce. Next comes effective mediation, another skill that is honed through training and experience. In our efforts to reach a solution that will satisfy you and your spouse, the expert mediators at Win-Win remain impartial. We don’t take sides when negotiating distribution of assets, finances, child custody, child support, and the many other issues facing a divorcing couple. Unlike divorce litigation, this is not a battle between two attorneys shouting it out in a courtroom. Mediation is a respectful process that takes everyone’s needs into consideration and formulates a solution that benefits all involved, including your children. It’s what makes divorce mediation on Long Island a much more peaceful process that traditional divorce litigation. It’s also more confidential, as it takes place in the privacy of our offices instead of open court.

Experience

There’s no way around it: when you and your spouse are facing decisions about child support, the family home, and the assets you share, you can’t afford to trust your future to anyone other than an expert. Not only does Win-Win boast family law attorneys who have worked in the highest and most respected roles in their fields, all with distinguished careers, we also proudly feature staff with backgrounds in psychology and social work with advanced degrees and stellar career records. This unique combination of experience allows us to provide mediation to our clients that is on a completely different level. For you and your spouse, that means a less stressful process and a faster start to your new lives.

We recommend you exhaust all other options before submitting to a lengthy and expensive court battle. Divorce mediation has been around for over forty years, and we have access to a vast amount of specialized knowledge that we can share to benefit everyone involved. We are some of the most experienced divorce mediators on Long Island, and we’re ready to put that experience to work for you and your spouse. We can save you stress and money through mediation and avoiding divorce litigation.

Legal Expertise

At Win-Win, compassion, impartiality, and understanding are key. We want you to be comfortable and for the process to be smooth. But that doesn’t negate the fact that you’ll have a team of expert attorneys with a thorough knowledge of the law and how it pertains to your situation behind you at all times. As you and your spouse discuss how to distribute your assets and debt, you need to understand the legal implications and your rights. Win-Win has you covered with experts in matrimonial law who are at the top of their field.

Emotional Support

No matter how long it’s been in coming, taking the step to begin the separation process is painful. We know that the future feels uncertain, and we understand the stress and fear that can cause. The team at Win-Win is trained to put these issues in perspective as we guide you through the process. We are skilled in helping you not only find a fast and equitable resolution, but in planning to move into your life beyond the divorce. Most of all, mediation aims to remove the greatest burdens of divorce from both partners, allowing them to focus on the next phase of their lives, unlike divorce litigation, which is a constant source of anxiety for you and your spouse. We’re ready to support your whole family in any way we can, and we have the knowledge and experience to put your minds at ease.

When choosing a divorce mediator, trust and building a relationship can be as important as legal advice. At Win-Win Divorce Mediation, we excel in both areas.

LONG ISLAND DIVORCE MEDIATION PROCESS:

You might be wondering exactly how the mediation process works and if it will fit into your lifestyle and goals for the future. The truth is, mediation is much easier to tailor to your individual situation than traditional divorce, and unlike court, the meetings can be scheduled around other obligations like work and school. A divorce mediator will endeavor to cater to your needs as a client.

While every situation is different and Win-Win understands and strives to accommodate that, the average divorce mediation follows this framework:

Free Consultation

When you select Win-Win as your divorce mediator, we begin with a thirty-minute free consultation, held either virtually or at the office. We explain the advantages of mediation to both partners and answer any questions you might have. If you feel the convenience, lower cost, and faster results of mediation are right for you, we can begin services immediately and at a reduced rate. We will then schedule the sessions, in which you will systematically address all issues while being guided by a compassionate and knowledgeable divorce mediator.

Mediation Sessions

To keep the flow of mediation going, your divorce mediator will arrange to meet with you in a week to ten days. Win-Win understands that your real life cannot be put on hold because of your divorce, and we will work with you. Meeting typically last about an hour, during which time our team of attorneys and social workers are available to guide you and your spouse. All staff members are impartial, not taking sides but working toward a solution that will satisfy everyone.

Finances

After the custody agreement is reached and all custodial matters are settled, mediation efforts turn to finances. We will work with you to decide whether the marital home will be sold and the proceeds split, or whether one party will remain in the home and buy out the other partner. We will also discuss pensions, retirement, 401ks, 403bs, and the like at this stage. Like custody, money can be a sensitive topic, but we can offer a wide range of options that will spare you the pain and expense of a court battle. Settling these matters through divorce mediation also protects the privacy of your financial situation, rather than having every detail of your finances dissected in open divorce court. With mediation, this information is never a matter of public record.

Custody

We know that settling child custody can be one of the most taxing and emotional aspects of any divorce, and we’ve fine-tuned our approach to make it as painless as it can possibly be. First we’ll handle residential custody to determine where the child or children will be living. Next is legal custody, or the authority to make decisions for the child in matters such as medical, educational, religious, or extracurricular activities. At this juncture, we also settle on a visitation schedule that benefits everyone involved. Child support is determined according to the law and the family’s finances.

You might wonder what happens if a custody agreement cannot be reached, and we know how difficult it can be when children are involved. Still, a court battle should be your absolute last resort, not just for the great expense, but for the stress and emotional havoc it will inflict on your family. Because of our training and experience, we are often able to suggest reasonable custody arrangements you may not even have considered. We know you want what’s best for your children and family, and we want the same thing. While child custody is one of the most difficult issues in divorce mediation, with an open mind and expert guidance, you can spare yourself and your children an awkward and hurtful fight in divorce court.

Protecting children from confrontation and the messy issues of their parent’s divorce is one area where divorce mediation really shines, and making the divorce as easy on children as possible is reason enough to consider mediation.

Distribution

This phase addresses the equitable division of items accumulated during the marriage: furniture, appliances, keepsakes, silverware, and so on. Mediation emphasizes the importance of compromise, and through this method, items can be distributed in a much faster and much less costly manner than through litigation.

Settlement Agreement

After the custody, finance, and distribution sessions are concluded and agreements reached, our attorneys will craft the Settlement Agreement, which is the document that will eventually be submitted to the court. The agreement consists of everything discussed during the divorce mediation sessions and through phone calls and emails, along with material required by the court.

Review Session

After the Settlement Agreement is drawn up, we will schedule the review session and sit down with you to thoroughly review your agreement. The settlement is considered a rough draft at this time, and we will scrutinize it section by section to address any questions or concerns you or your spouse may have. You are free to take notes and make markings on the agreement at this time, and then you’ll have seven to ten days to appraise the agreement and get back to us by phone or email with any edits or issues. After the changes are made, we’ll schedule a date for the Final Agreement to be signed.

Divorce Packet

Once both parties concur that the Settlement Agreement is ready to be signed, we will prepare the Divorce Packet, which includes the Agreement, paperwork and documents required by the court, minutiae such as social security numbers, health insurance IDs, and birth dates, and finally a consolidated way to express what was stated in the agreement in a timely fashion. We will then meet with both spouses, and you will sign the Settlement Agreement and Divorce Packet. Shortly thereafter, from a mediator role, we will file the papers in court on your behalf, enabling you to not have to appear in any capacity in a court setting. Depending on the county where the documents are filed, it can take approximately four to six months until a judge signs off on your papers and you are officially divorced.

Your divorce paperwork and its filing are part of the divorce mediation services we provide. As you can see, you can achieve an affable separation and divorce, complete with resolution of any issues around property distribution, without ever setting foot in a court or listening to divorce lawyers bickering over details.

That’s the beauty of divorce mediation: you get through it with as little conflict as possible and get on with the rest of your life.

NO ADVANCE FEES REQUIRED

By opting to work with a divorce mediator, you not only avoid the hassle of a drawn out divorce, you also save significantly. With Win-Win Divorce Solutions, our clients pay only a fraction of the cost of a traditional, litigated divorce in the Family Court System. There are no advanced fees or retainers. As a more affordable, convenient, and simplified alternative, our service is one of the most ideal solutions available.

Additionally, Win-Win Divorce Solutions is one of the only firms in NYC that offers an impartial co-mediation experience with mediators who have training in both law and social work. Our objective is to help you get through every step of this complex and emotionally challenging process with ease.
