Approaches to Divorce: The Role of a New York Divorce Attorney
Most people associate divorce with courtroom drama. In reality, most divorcing spouses prefer to resolve their differences in a more prompt and peaceful manner, including mediation and collaboration. In mediation, a neutral third party helps separating spouses work through their differences while maintaining a spirit of cooperation. Mediation participants may consult with independent attorneys.
Other couples prefer collaborative divorce, where participants take a more adversarial approach, while still trying to arrive at mutually beneficial resolutions.
Despite their best efforts, some couples simply cannot reach an agreement and must be in litigation. The right New York divorce attorney can effectively guide clients through the complexities of litigation-based divorce, and make the process as efficient and stress-free as possible.
Filing For Divorce in New York
It is important to meet with a trusted attorney prior to filing for divorce. Your attorney can help you determine whether you fulfill the filing requirements mandated by New York and what approach (either at-fault or no-fault) best fits your needs. Additionally, your attorney can help you complete necessary paperwork.
Unfortunately, a pain-free divorce simply does not exist. Luckily, the grief caused by this process can be minimized with the help of a compassionate divorce lawyer. Contact us at your earliest convenience to learn more about divorce in New York.
