You can’t afford to hire the wrong Family Attorney


A Non-Confrontational Court Alternative

If you have a family law issue you would like help resolving, mediation can provide you with a constructive and less costly alternative to court. Through the mediation process, a trained, neutral third-party — or mediator — takes a non-adversarial approach to assist the parties in resolving their dispute. The mediator helps you and your spouse or partner communicate with each other, listen to each other’s interests and needs, and works with you to generate options to resolve your issues and come up with an agreement that should be acceptable to the judge hearing your case. Mediation requires full disclosure of each party’s income and assets, and a willingness to work genuinely towards a settlement that is fair to both parties. When there are children, successful mediation, at least as done by Sanford Furman, requires that both parties focus on what is truly best for the children. The mediator does not represent either or both of you, even though he may be a lawyer. He is simply someone with experience and expertise who can assist you in reaching an agreement and then preparing the paperwork you need to bring to court.
