Port Washington Divorce Mediatior

Mediation Relationships and marriages are complicated. While some can last a lifetime, allowing people to grow old and grey together, others face a multitude of problems over the years. When a marriage simply doesn't work anymore, the best route forward is usually to end the relationship and move in your separate directions. However, this isn't a simple process. Whether you're seeking a separation, or a full divorce, you'll need the guidance and support of the right professional.

While the most obvious choice may be to seek out the support of a divorce attorney, it's worth remembering that litigation isn't the only way to end a marriage. Sometimes, for couples that can still communicate, the option of mediation is a much more appealing way to end the relationship on neutral grounds, carefully negotiating the issues that matter most to you. As a divorce attorney, collaborative lawyer and trained mediator, Mr. Darren M Shapiro gives residents of Port Washington and beyond the chance to choose their preferred method of ending a marriage.

Choosing a Port Washington Divorce Mediator

No couple is immune to potential problems in their marriage. Port Washington, according to Wikipedia, is one of the most affluent places in Nassau County and New York, with more than 15,846 people living there. The Forbes magazine also listed the hamlet as the 418th wealthiest location in the United States in 2017. However, as we all know, money doesn't necessarily buy happiness. Even if you are lucky enough to live in an affluent location, that doesn't mean that you'll never experience problems with your marriage.

Information from City-data.com suggests that approximately 63% of the residents in the town are married, while another 1% are separated, and 7.1% are divorced. While no happily married couple enjoys thinking about the potential end of their marriage, often the best way to protect yourself from whatever may happen in the future, is to ensure that you know what you're options are when your marriage does start to falter. Whether you're looking to draft a separation agreement for you and your partner, build a post-nuptial agreement that gives you peace of mind for the rest of your marriage, or pursue a divorce, Attorney Shapiro can help.

Mr. Darren Shapiro offers clients of Port Washington a comprehensive divorce mediator experience, designed to suit their individual needs. You can even consider using preliminary planning sessions if you would like to build a rapport with your new mediator before you continue with the rest of the negotiation process. Alternatively, if you would like to make sure that you and your partner are always on the same page by avoiding one-on-one conversations, Attorney Shapiro can offer traditional mediation too.
