Alternative Divorce Methods

Many people do not want to subject their children or themselves to the costs, monetary and emotional stress, and the time that can be required to complete a litigated divorce. Many clients prefer to try to work out their differences in an amicable, private and expedited manner.

Based in Nassau County, New York, the law firm of Weinstein, Kaplan & Cohen, P.C., assists individuals throughout the New York City metropolitan area who are looking for an alternative to traditional divorce. Our divorce lawyers have a wealth of experience with alternative divorce methods, such as collaborative divorce and mediation.

Collaborative Divorce

This process is geared to help the parties conclude a successful agreement, at normally less cost and less emotional upset. All of the professionals who may be involved in the process have collaborative law training. To ensure that everyone involved in the process is committed to an amicable and expedited resolution without litigation, the parties and their attorney agree that if the matter results in litigation, none of the professionals will take part in such litigation. The process of appraising assets and dealing with the parties' income is conducted in a private setting.

Divorce Mediation

Another alternative to litigation is for the panics to engage in a mediation process. The mediator, a neutral third party, attempts to help the parties arrive at a fair agreement without litigation. Many times, the mediator is a family law attorney. The parties can also be individually represented by divorce lawyers.
