Long Island Mediators Help Divorcing Spouses Reach Consensus
Firm in Hauppauge and Garden City gives parties a chance to avoid court
When your marriage is ending, the litigation process can add aggravation and expense to a situation that is already difficult. Mediation helps couples work out the details of their divorce in an informal setting where everyone can concentrate on achieving a fair result rather than courtroom procedure and tactics. Serving Long Island since 1990, Tabat, Cohen, Blum, Yovino & Diesa, PC provides comprehensive mediation services that give divorcing spouses the ability to save time and money. Our divorce attorneys serve Suffolk and Nassau counties and use the knowledge we’ve gained over decades to ease the transition for those who want to end their marriage without unnecessary conflict.
New York family lawyers outline advantages of alternative dispute resolution
Every aspect of your divorce can be resolved through mediation, including terms related to child support, custody, alimony and the division of marital assets. No matter how serious the disagreements might be between you and your spouse, it’s important to remember that you likely will be part of each other’s lives for the foreseeable future. This is especially true if you are parents. With this in mind, it’s usually worthwhile to think seriously about the benefits of mediation, which include:
- Time — Resolving a divorce in court takes a great deal of time, even when no extraordinary delays occur. You can conduct mediation on your own schedule so that both you and your spouse can move forward with your lives more quickly.
- Cost — As lawyers typically bill by the hour, litigation proceedings that run for months, or even years, result in significant attorneys’ fees. Alternative dispute resolution cuts down on legal costs and eliminates unnecessary procedure.
- Privacy — No judge understands a divorce the way the spouses do, and sharing intimate details of the life you shared can be very uncomfortable. During mediation, you can protect your privacy and shape the conversation rather than giving control to the court.
Divorce mediation makes it easier for the parties to complete the marriage dissolution process in a way that sets everyone up well for the future. In this less formal setting, each spouse is able to state their needs clearly. Consequently, mutually beneficial agreements can be reached more easily because the parties are communicating freely rather than fighting over procedural issues.
Neutral third parties guide couples through the mediation process

He or she can identify creative ways to overcome obstacles that might be preventing agreement and explain how a court might apply the law on a given question. Our Long Island family law attorneys have extensive experience in matrimonial actions throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties and can handle discussions on complex issues, including detailed financial matters associated with high-net worth divorces.
