For people across Eastern Nassau County, and indeed throughout the rest of Long Island, it can be challenging to think about emotional concepts like divorce and separation - particularly if your marriage is just beginning. However, the truth is that anything can happen in a relationship - regardless of where you live.

If you're looking into divorce options in Eastern Nassau County, you may be uncertain which avenue is the best for you and your family. Most people assume that their only option is to address the often painful and confusing process of litigation. While it's true that some cases are best suited to an in-court approach, many marriages can be dissolved in a more amicable and negotiation-friendly format - this is where mediation comes in. Mediators like Attorney Shapiro are on hand to offer an alternative dispute resolution opportunity to people who would prefer to maintain as much control over their divorce as possible.

Not only is Darren Shapiro's mediation office only a short drive away when couples want to discuss their divorce, but because he's had many cases within the Nassau County and Suffolk County Long Island courts and all over the New York City area, Attorney Shapiro can also offer guidance on the kind of issues that his clients may need to address when drafting a divorce agreement.Is Eastern Nassau County Divorce Mediation Right for You?
Importantly, although Darren Shapiro is both a divorce attorney and a trained mediator, he does not act in both capacities at the same time. If a couple wants to work with Attorney Shapiro as a mediator, he often recommends that they come to their initial consultation together, so neither party feels as though the other has an unfair advantage. Similarly, Attorney Shapiro will not work as a review attorney for one client when mediating both parties, as this would eliminate the objectivity that's so crucial in a mediation environment.
Many couples consider mediation to be an effective way to address their divorce issues outside of the standard Eastern Nassau County courtrooms. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that mediation is suited to every couple. There are some spouses across Oyster Bay, Muttontown, Woodbury and beyond that may need to take their case into a litigation environment, or they may find that it's helpful to work with Attorney Shapiro and a range of other professionals in a collaborative law format.
If mediation is appropriate for you, then it can provide a cost-effective and less painful approach to divorce, where you and your soon to be ex-spouse can come to decisions about your future in a safe environment, without the restrictions of the court and judges breathing down your neck. If you already have your own mediator in Eastern Nassau County, then you could consider using Attorney Shapiro as a review lawyer throughout the proceedings. As a review attorney, Mr Shapiro can answer any questions you might have about your divorce and ensure that you are addressing any critical issues that might be crucial to your long-term wellbeing. After all, Attorney Shapiro has worked on countless divorce, child custody, and family law cases throughout New York, which means that he can provide a highly nuanced and reliable service to the local residents of Eastern Nassau County.Do You Need an Eastern Nassau County Divorce Mediator?
