Divorce Mediation Protects Your Rights on Long Island, NY

Many clients have entered our Long Island Divorce and Family Law firm seeking to ensure that their rights are protected in their Divorce Mediation. We always advise our clients that just because you are engaged in Divorce Mediation does not mean you should not receive everything you are entitled to in your divorce. While there are certainly situations where trade-offs are more than fair, we always work to ensure that the interests of both parties are protected.

New York State Has Guidelines 

Under New York State Statutory Law there are certain guidelines that the courts follow with regards to maintenance, child support and equitable distribution. While you and your spouse are entitled to deviate from these guidelines by agreement and for valid reasons, it is important that you understand what you are entitled to under the Law. In order for you to be knowledgeable during your Divorce Mediation sessions, you must be informed of what you are entitled to under New York State Law. This knowledge will help guide you through your Divorce Mediation Sessions and assist you in reaching an amenable Divorce Agreement, sometimes called a Stipulation of Settlement or Separation Agreement.

In our Long Island Divorce and Family Law firm, we have spent many years helping couples reach an amicable and favorable Divorce Mediation Agreement. In our many years of practice, we have helped countless couples do just that.

Mediation Can Create a Better Post-Divorce Relationship

While going through a Long Island Divorce, the post-divorce relationship you share with your spouse may be the last thing on your mind. While understandable, that relationship is something you should keep in mind while going through your Divorce Mediation, especially if you have children together. Realistically, the end of your marriage is just another hurdle you need to effectively navigate in your roles as co-parents.

By engaging in Divorce Mediation, you are signaling to your children that both of their parents can treat each other with the courtesy and respect that your children have come to expect from their parents. In Divorce Mediation, you and your spouse must be willing to cooperate and communicate when it comes to the various issues and topics of your Divorce. This spirit of cooperation is critical to placing your children ahead of your Long Island Divorce and making sure that, while everything else may feel like it’s changing, their parents are still the most important people in their lives and their family, though different, is still a family.

Throughout our years as Divorce Mediators, we have seen many couples emerge from mediation and continue on in their post-divorce life in a respect and cooperative manner. They are able to communicate regularly without any strife and can raise their children as co-parents with relative ease. In fact, for many couples, this kind of relationship is one of the driving factors for their decision to engage in Divorce Mediation.

I went to see Rob for a modification for my child custody agreement to relocate, I can honestly say that working with Rob and Christine has been the best experience. I cannot recommend them enough I only wish I had seen them sooner. They are prompt with communication, and they are honest which I appreciate so much. They do not give you fake promises and they do their best to fight for what you want which they do amazingly well! You can tell they are passionate about what they do and care about their clients. A very important aspect of lawyer client relationship for me is an open line of communication, the anxiety of the unknown always gets the best of us. The fact they were always available whether it be phone call or email to answer any question was extremely comforting and exactly what I needed. I am not well versed with laws and regulation so knowing I had Rob and his partners there when I was unsure or conflicted was extremely needed and greatly appreciated.When it comes to family court it's never easy but having Rob and his partner by my side I felt extremely comfortable and he helped me have realistic expectations. Please TRUST HIM!! If you're looking for a lawyer (at least for my end from child custody/Family Court) don't look any further you will not be disappointed. I hope to never have to use them again but in the event I have to, they are going to be my forever first call.


  • I have known Robert for more than 8 eight years. Robert has represented many of my family and friends. Each and every one has raved about Robert’s professionalism and expertise. He is knowledgable, friendly and truly cares about his clients. I would not hesitate to continue to refer Robert and his firm in the future!
  • I’ve known Robert for most of my life, and feel very fortunate that I have been able to turn to a good friend for various kinds of legal advice. He is very intelligent, straight forward, and professional. Most importantly though, Robert always finds the fastest resolution, and will not waste your time or money. He is NOT in the habit of dragging things through litigation if there is no need for the added expense. I have referred a few of my friends to Robert, and they have all been more than satisfied in their experience with him. Highly recommend!!
