After a verbal agreement is reached you will be given the option of having me draft the Separation and/or Marital Settlement Agreement. This is often the least expensive and fastest method of obtaining a formal agreement. The agreement will be a legally binding contract valid under New York State Law.
Yes. If both of you agree, and the mediator believes that you are firmly committed to the terms that you have reached in mediation, she can draft all of the papers necessary to obtain a final divorce, including pension orders and deeds.
A typical mediation that lasts for three mediaton sessions and includes a separation and marital settlement agreement, uncontested divorce papers, filing fees, a deed and pension order costs approximately $3,500, which is less than the cost of one of the parties to retain an attorney in a contested action. However, every situation is unique and some couples with uncomplicated situations and/or no chidren can complete the process for significantly less.
