Advantages of Divorce Mediation

Mediation has may advantages.  It is a lot cheaper than litigation, you and your spouse control the process...not the Court, and it is much quicker than going through the litigation process.  Mediation is done in the privacy of my office and agreements are made in a collaborative process.  The only time that you will be going to Court is on your actual dissolution date.  There is no waiting months for a court date or spending hours away from home or work in a stuffy courtroom.

Debt Consolidation vs. Bankruptcy

After an adversarial divorce, debt can become a overwhelming and looming matter. Individuals often come to me and ask for my opinion regarding bankruptcy.  My opinion is usually to avoid bankruptcy if possible and try debt consolidation through an agency that specializes in this area.  Debt consolidators can help you charge-off or greatly reduce the compounding interest on your accounts and set up a payment plan to re-pay your creditors on a budget that fits within your means.  It may take several years to re-pay these loans, but in the long run.

What is Divorce Mediation

Mediation is a voluntary, flexible, non-adversarial, private and confidential process for resolving your divorce or other family issues with the help of a neutral facilitator who will assist you in reaching an agreement. The divorce mediator is not a judge or arbitrator, and cannot force anyone to do anything, but will use his experience and training to help you reach an amicable agreement. Any agreement which is reached must be acceptable to both parties. You and your spouse retain complete control over your divorce or other family matters and can be far more creative than the courts in designing an amicable and cost-effective solution that works for your family.

Same-Sex Divorce

A same-sex couple who marry in Connecticut will be able to obtain a divorce in Connecticut with a Divorce Mediator, Divorce Lawyer or Divorce Attorney as long as one of the parties still resides in Connecticut at the time of the divorce action. Parties who make a transitory visit to Connecticut for the purposes of becoming married will not be able to divorce in the Connecticut Courts unless they can prove legal residency. Likewise, if both parties initially reside in Connecticut and move to a state that does not recognize same-sex marriages, they will not be able to obtain a divorce in the new state because they will be deemed to be unmarried; nor, very importantly, will they be able to obtain a divorce in Connecticut because they will not meet Connecticut’s residency requirements.
