Top Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Divorce mediation is an effective form of alternative dispute resolution designed to help separating spouses reach middle ground with less of the pain common to the traditional divorce process. Here are the main benefits to consider:

  • a relatively painless experience set at your own pace—rather than a timeline set by a judge—with minimal court costs, predictable lawyer fees, and flexible appointment schedules.
  • a therapeutic process to help couples voice concerns directly to one another, increase and improve post-divorce communication, and resolve co-parenting issues subject to future conflict and court intervention.
  • a personalized and tailored approach where each party devotes time and energy to the issues that matter most, serving as active participants in every aspect of their divorce.
  • a carefully planned, nuanced, and unique settlement agreement to help both parties address and move past the root causes of disputes with less future litigation and more post-divorce stability than a decision handed down by a judge.
  • a non-adversarial environment without time pressures where both parties can select and hire neutral experts from appraisers to actuaries and more.

Why Choose Petroske Riezenman & Meyers

There are many Long Island attorneys who will promise to aggressively represent your interests in a divorce or family law dispute.

Few have the right mix of attributes to provide cutting-edge legal representation along with compassionate support in this stressful time.

At Petroske Riezenman & Meyers, our success is built on three pillars:


Matrimonial and family law changes often. New developments come out of Albany every year, and the courts implement the law in sometimes surprising ways. To effectively protect your interests, you need a lawyer who understands the latest developments in the law, however minor. We stay informed of upcoming amendments and trends in the law. We know the latest court decisions that might impact how a judge views your case. If there is a precedent that supports your claim, we will find it and bring it to the attention of the judge.

See our Articles, FAQs and Video Library.


Family law disputes are not like other lawsuits. These disputes are governed by different laws and different judges. Although you can ask a criminal defense lawyer or an immigration attorney to handle your matrimonial or family law dispute, you should not be surprised if they are soon in over their heads and unable to provide effective representation. At Petroske Riezenman & Meyers, our attorneys and support staff have dedicated their careers to excellence and professionalism in the practice of matrimonial and family law.
