Aggressive Attorneys And Litigators Protecting Your Rights

New York divorce mediation tips: Do this, not that

If you visit our blog regularly, you know that we like to publish simple, easy-to-understand tips for our family law readers. We believe that approaching sensitive topics in this manner gives New York residents common sense ways to accomplish their legal goals.

In this post, we would like to focus on divorce mediation by offering you several "dos and don'ts" to help you achieve your mediation goals.

  • Do: Prepare yourself for compromise if you wish to end your marriage quickly and as agreeably as possible.
  • Don't: Resort to slinging insults or calling your spouse names during mediation.
  • Do: Put your focus on areas of agreement at first to make it easier to address areas of high conflict later.
  • Don't: Disregard or try to invalidate any concerns your spouse may have.
  • Do: Leave any past arguments with your spouse out of the mediation process so that you may focus on what is important right now.
  • Don't: Make unreasonable demands or absolute statements that could hurt you or your spouse's efforts to negotiate.
  • Do: Remain committed to the process of divorce mediation and make it clear to your spouse that you wish to avoid litigation.
  • Don't: Interrupt your spouse or the mediator so that you can help foster a peaceful and respectful environment in which to negotiate.

Of course, our tips will not help you solve every single issue you may experience in divorce mediation. However, we believe they can improve your focus and make ending your marriage less stressful for you and your children.
