An Olive Branch Approach To Family Law

Divorce And Custody Mediation Services Backed By Decades Of Family Law Experience

Last updated on October 28, 2022

Recent years have seen a growing focus in the family law field on how disputes are decided. It has become more and more clear that lengthy court battles are rarely the ideal process for resolving divorce and custody issues. The adversarial nature of litigation tends to lay the groundwork for ongoing conflict rather than healing and closure.

Mediation offers an alternative. During custody and divorce mediation, a neutral third party facilitates a give-and-take between the parties with the goal of reaching a win-win resolution. Rather than advocating for one party, the mediator helps both sides find common ground.

Mediation provides a safe and constructive environment for couples to discuss contested issues. Through mediation, you can work through these issues in a more positive way, resulting in far less stress and financial strain.

When couples reach a stalemate, a mediator works to refocus the conversation and identify opportunities for agreement. Attorney Michael N. Kalil is a certified mediator and often finds that when couples feel that their concerns have been heard, they feel more comfortable moving forward in a collaborative manner.

Helping Couples Collaborate

Divorce and custody disputes don’t have to be nightmares. At The Law Offices of Michael N. Kalil, Michael helps couples transition more smoothly into the next chapter of their lives through experienced mediation services or utilizing collaborative law alternatives.

After focusing almost exclusively on family law matters for nearly 30 years, Michael has seen the benefits of mediation firsthand. Michael is a custody and divorce mediator who is certified in New York. Because he has also practiced for so many years as a family law attorney, he offers several advantages you will not find with a nonlawyer mediator. For example, he can draft legal documents to finalize any agreements. He also can walk both parties through the court process and better identify likely outcomes, which in turn helps clients make intelligent decisions.
