Welcome to Our Practice
Thank you for stopping by our site. The prospect of divorce is frightening. The reality is worse: the emotions, anxiety, and expense. Most couples wrestle with two fundamental concerns. First, how do we go about getting divorced ? Second, how will I live, how will I prosper when the same income that supported one household now has to support two ?
Mediation is a modern, intelligent approach to separation, divorce, and custody disputes. It offers couples an effective and sensible alternative to the traditional adversarial process of lawyers and judges. With the help of your Families in Transition mediator, you and your spouse work out a settlement that meets the needs of you and your children in a neutral, non-judgmental, confidential atmosphere.
Did you know the average American divorce takes a year and costs $15,000 ? Thats money better spent on your kids education, your retirement, or just starting over. Experience suggests mediation takes less time than court and thousands of dollars less!
Families in Transition offers the services of an experienced attorney-mediator who keeps you on track to discuss and resolve the fundamental issues: support, maintenance, what to do with the house, who gets what, who pays what, how do we parent the kids? More importantly, we use advanced tools for divorce financial planning, so you can make informed financial decisions every step of the way. You wont get that from a lawyer or most mediators.
Familes in Transition is conveniently located off Western Avenue in Guilderland, two lights west of the Crossgates Mall. We offer evening and weekend appointments to serve you better. Make an online appointment now or call us at 218-0851 for more information.
Mediation wont alleviate the loss or frustration of divorce. But it will change the way you resolve things with your spouse.
Planning for the future should be part of every divorce. Sadly, it isnt always done. Be careful: settlements that look good today may become unfair over time.
Give us 6-10 hours of your time and well help move you towards your tomorrow.
