The mediation process helps couples alleviate the anger and hostility often present in the household by focusing on positive and effective communication. The effective communication skills you practice during mediation may help reduce the trauma to your children, who tend to suffer less emotionally if their parents communicate effectively.
Jonas Family Law offers a free consultation where we discuss your specific situation and determine whether mediation is right for you.
We conduct private mediation sessions in a comfortable, non-confrontational environment.
The mediator is neutral third party that does not "take sides". The mediator can describe the general parameters of matrimonial law but cannot give you legal advice. Each party is urged to consult their own attorney and have the documents reviewed before signing the agreement. Once signed, the document become a legally binding contract.
Through collaboration, communication and cooperation, the mediator helps both parties reach a mutually satisfactory agreement.
Documents are prepared to record the agreement, and both parties sign to indicate acceptance.
Jonas Family Law prepares all necessary legal documents to effect an uncontested divorce in New York State.
