Question #62: My wife and I have been married for 2 1/2 years. We were married in NY and she still resides there. We have decided to divorce. The split is very amicable and there are no children and no property to split. Although I did briefly speak with an attorney to better understand the options, both of us would like to get this over with quickly and with as little drama as possible. Is this the sort of thing that you do and approximately how long is the process and how much should I expect it to cost? Thank you.

This is precisely what I do! Although I am an attorney,

I do not represent either party but remain a neutral throughout the mediation process,

guiding the parties through all of the necessary issues that need to be discussed and

decided, offering alternative resolutions when an impasse seems to be at hand, and

drafting the legal documents to submit to the court.

The process should take about three months to complete and the cost will depend on how

much time it takes us to go through the outstanding issues, draft a Separation Agreement,

and draft the Divorce Papers.

If this makes sense to both of you, please call me at 212-370-1660 to discuss

the matter at greater length.
