Divorce Mediation

Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is an alternative to court litigation for resolving disputes that arise as two people separate their lives. We help the couple to work through the issues of their divorce and reach a mutually agreeable settlement.

At Venn Mediation, we help people resolve disagreements about separation and divorce. We strongly believe mediation can be part of the solution and we provide attentive service and quality results. As mediators we strive to understand each person's perspective and help the couple to determine their best potential terms of settlement. Clients benefit from two mediators, helping them negotiate, communicate and understand their options in resolving their conflict.

Statistically speaking, divorces utilizing mediators tend to be less expensive than divorces using only lawyers. The average cost of litigated divorce in New York without children involved is $17,100, and goes up to $25,600 when children are involved. Meanwhile, with mediators, the average costs tend to be between $7,000 and $10,000. Even in a mediation where each side chooses to have a lawyer, the collaborative nature of the mediation process means getting to an effective agreement faster, and therefore at a much lower cost, than court alone.

Another key strength of mediation is where - even if the parties don’t want one - there will be a post-divorce relationship. Either when kids or pets are involved or when social or professional circles are intertwined. When the couple can’t avoid seeing each other after the divorce, mediation by its collaborative nature, can help minimize animosity down the road.

Divorce mediation allows couples to define the terms of their divorce amicably and affordably and provides an opportunity to end the marriage with less toxicity. The result is a separation agreement that can be easily turned into a legal document and submitted to the court.
