Stressed About The Divorce Process? Uncertain About Your Rights?
Here are the Need-To-Know Questions Most of Our Clients Ask – and We Answer:
“Should I Choose Divorce Litigation or Divorce Mediation?“
On the average, Divorce Mediation on Long Island costs under $5000 total.
Divorce Litigation can cost up to $20,000 to $60,000 per spouse.
In Divorce Litigation, after spending much time, much money and enduring extreme stress, you and your spouse will still have to reach agreement to finish the divorce.
In Divorce Mediation you will most likely reach a better agreement – with FAR LESS TIME, FAR LESS MONEY and FAR LESS STRESS.
Why will you reach a better agreement in Mediation? Because you remain in control of the process. In Divorce Litigation, you give up control to the Lawyers and the Courts. Often, at the end, the Judge will dictate the final Agreement between you. In Divorce Mediation, we, your Mediators, can help you customize solutions to fit your unique circumstances.
2. Your Second Choice – Which Divorce Mediation Service to Use?
Let’s say you choose Mediation. Now the question is – which Divorce Mediation Long Island Service to use? Who are the best Divorce Mediators, Suffolk County, for you? Not an easy choice as there are many. Here is why we recommend ourselves – why we believe we stand out from the crowd:
Our Divorce Mediator Long Island Experience – 25 years ago, we recognized that Divorce Mediation was a far better alternative than Divorcing by going to two lawyers and the Courts, and fighting it out.
So we trained as Mediators and opened the Long Island Center for Divorce Mediation, Suffolk County. Now we have 25 years of experience under our belts – We have mediated all kinds of cases, every situation imaginable. And 95% of our cases complete Mediation. Only a handful of cases go to Court – only when one Spouse absolutely refuses to compromise. The end result – usually that Spouse ends up getting less when leaving the agreement in the hands of the Court.
We are so experienced that we as your mediators take on the average, only two meetings to complete the mediation process – as compared to those mediators who insist you buy a package of 5 to 10 sessions in advance.
Our Professional Pasts – My partner and husband, Fred Klarer, Esq. is a Divorce Lawyer with 35 years of experience. Before starting the Long Island Center, he trained as a Divorce Mediator.
Fred, a Harvard Law Graduate and a former Buddhist Monk, is expert in Divorce and Divorce Law – child custody and child support, spousal support, and asset distribution including the house, debt and your pensions.
Given Fred’s experience in the Divorce Courts in Nassau and Suffolk, he can tell you what to expect if you go to two separate lawyers and get involved with the Courts. His experience in that realm will guide you to a far better Divorce Mediation Long Island solution. He is amazing at helping clients reach agreements that both can live with.
Clients tell Fred that he is soothing and calm, non-judgmental and very wise.
I, Dr. Diane Kramer, am a clinical psychologist, licensed in NY State since 1974. My specialty is Marriage and Family Therapy. In the 90s, I trained as a Divorce Mediator.
Clients tell me that I am knowledgeable, trustworthy, calming and am highly effective in conflict resolution. I am expert at helping children and families through divorce and into a happier future.
My skills set me up to help you and your Spouse through the difficult issues, while calming stress, anger or anxiety. I am excellent at not taking sides. I make sure that both Spouses get heard and power is balanced. I think out of the box and help you and your Spouse reach an agreement that works.
Our Additional Divorce Mediator Long Island Servicesin Suffolk County– After the Mediation Sessions are complete and you and your Spouse have reached agreement, Fred completes all the paperwork for your Divorce.
That paperwork includes your Stipulation of Settlement (the agreement between you and your Spouse), and the Divorce Packet (30 pages worth). Fred’s agreements in both Divorce Litigation and Divorce Mediation have never been overturned. That means once your decisions are made, your Spouse will not win in petitioning the Court to change the agreement.
Diane offers co-parenting counseling and divorce counseling. She is also excellent at helping children through the family divorce.
Our Personal Pasts – We, Diane and Fred, the Directors of the Divorce Mediation Long Island Center, are married to each other for many years. Both of us divorced our first Spouses a long time ago.
We went through what you are going through now and so we understand. Our understanding is one of the factors that will help you when the going gets difficult.
We know that in most cases, there is one (or maybe two) really difficult issue where you and your Spouse are stuck and frustrated. Both our personal and professional experience helps us help you through the difficulties.
