Voted Best Long Island Divorce Lawyer

Simonetti & Associates, Nassau County Divorce Lawyer

Nassau County Mediation Attorneys Assist You in Settling Domestic Disputes.

Does meditation reduce costs and speed resolutions?

Regarding matters of separation and divorce on Long Island, traditionally individual attorneys represent each spouse. They argue in an adversarial hearing, and a judge decides the outcome. The process is antagonistic and expensive. Mediation presents an option that allows a neutral party, the mediator, to guide the debate about each party’s rights toward an agreeable resolution. It saves court costs and promotes a healthier working relationship. At Simonetti & Associates, we have over 30 years of experience handling domestic disputes through mediation in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. We know how to protect your interests while expediting a fair resolution of your divorce issues.


What are the benefits of mediation?


Divorce mediation is a viable alternative to a costly Long Island divorce when both spouses are willing to negotiate in good faith. The benefits of mediation include:

  • Exercising greater control over the outcome than when a judge makes the final decision
  • Allowing spouses to reach an agreement that fits their family’s needs
  • Relieving the emotional and financial stresses associated with testifying in court
  • Keeping confidential information out of public court records


Additionally, spouses who reach an agreement through mediation on issues related to their separation or divorce are more likely to follow the terms of their agreement and to be able to maintain a working relationship in the future regarding their children.


Who should consider mediation?


Mediation works best for parties who wish to settle disputed issues without going to court and are willing to negotiate in good faith. Co-parents, professional colleagues and spouses with a common circle of friends can expect continuing social and business contact. Continuing an amiable relationship and exploring ways to prevent future disagreements is mutually beneficial.


The Mediation Process.


The process can be relatively simple once you decide that mediation is the best method for your family. Once you’ve picked a mediation attorney, you will all coordinate a day and time for a mediation conference. The mediator will review divorce terms such as Child Custody, Familial Visitation, Division of Assets and liabilities, and Alimony. Although differences of opinion are common in any divorce, a mediator will be able to provide neutral legal advice and facilitate an agreement between the two parties.
