Ending a marriage is an emotional process. Even if you’re both on the same page in deciding to move forward, closing this chapter of your life can still raise a host of legal and emotional challenges.
Fortunately, divorce doesn’t have to be a bitter, hostile process. Mediation offers an alternative. By sitting down and talking through the issues with the help of an attorney-mediator, you can reach a resolution that makes sense for both of you — and your children. Divorce mediation will spare you the agony and expense of a drawn-out court battle.
A Problem-Solving Approach
At Resolve Attorney Mediators of Rochester, we help couples pursue divorce in a more cooperative way — one that focuses on problem-solving rather than blaming or stonewalling. By separating the emotional undercurrents from the legal realities, we help clients make more informed decisions on how to move forward. Ultimately, our goal is for you to reach a resolution you can feel comfortable with for months and years to come.
It’s normal to feel mixed emotions about divorce, but those emotions shouldn’t drive your decisions. By focusing on concrete legal realities, we’ll empower you to make well-informed decisions about your future.
As experienced lawyers, our mediators understand both the issues that accompany divorce and the legal framework that shapes them. We understand how judges in New York approach divorce. Applying that knowledge — along with decades of family law experience — we will empower you to have a stronger say in your future.
Our goal is to help you find common ground in:
- Working out a child custody arrangement that will foster your children’s well-being
- Allocating child support
- Addressing financial and property matters in a fair, balanced way
- Exploring whether spousal support is appropriate, and in what amount
When appropriate, we also work with financial planners, tax advisers, certified public accountants and other professionals to address complex property issues.
