Mediation for Divorce / Separation
Mediation is often recognized by unhappily married couples as the easier, less contentious and less expensive way to get a legal separation and/or a divorce. And while this can be the case, it is also true that mediation proceedings should be handled by skilled lawyers so that they go as smoothly as possible and that couples avoid time- and cost-consuming hiccups along the way. A poorly handled mediation can cost a couple as much or more than a divorce.
The staff at the Law Offices of Michael Catalanotto, PC not only has the experience to handle mediation but also realizes what a difficult time this is for estranged couples and will work with both parties to reach an agreement that is satisfactory for each person. We will also help you navigate the often-confusing path leading to separation and/or divorce, including whether or not to file for a no-fault or a grounds-based separation and/or divorce and determining issues such as custody of children, child and spousal support and the distribution of finances and property. That’s a lot to digest, and while we realize time is often of the essence in separation and divorce, we will work with you for as long as is necessary to come to a settlement amenable to all.
