Nassau County Family Law Attorneys


Mediation is a collaborative approach to divorce that involves a neutral third-party mediator facilitating negotiations between spouses. This method often leads to faster, more amicable resolutions and can be less costly than litigation. Mediation allows couples to maintain more control over the outcome of their divorce.


In some cases, litigation becomes necessary when couples cannot reach an agreement through mediation or when there are contentious issues that require legal intervention. Litigation involves presenting your case in court, and a judge will make the final decisions regarding asset division, child custody, and other matters. While litigation can be more time-consuming and costly, it ensures a resolution when mediation isn't feasible.
