Question #24: My husband and I are New York City residents. We have decided to separate then divorce as soon as we have met the legal one year requirement. Between us, we have already reached agreement on custody of our 9 year old son, child support, and the distribution of our belongings (contents of our home). We have no major assets to divide. We would like to pursue a mediated divorce, but are concerned about the cost. This is the only thing holding us back at this point. At present, we would be unable to afford even standard adversarial legal services.

A mediated divorce is certainly much less expensive and costly both in financial and emotional terms. If you are ready for mediation, please call me at 212-370-1660 to discuss the possibility of arranging for a mediated divorce and the costs of such arrangement.
