Resolve Each Contested Issue in Divorce Mediation

In the mediation process, you may be able to address and resolve all issues involving child custody and visitation, child support, spousal support, and division of property. By taking the time to review your unique situation and your needs, Mr. Nathans can work to devise solutions that optimally suite your family’s needs. You can protect your rights without leaving important decisions to the courts.

Out of Court Settlements

Collaborative law is a specific type of settlement negotiation where attorneys from both sides agree that they will withdraw from the case and will not represent their client in court if the divorce cannot be resolved in mediation. This gives both parties an incentive to resolve disputes through cooperation and a collaborative process. As your advocate, Mr. Nathans will help you address your needs and desires and work to obtain the best solutions for you and your family. Very often, mediation and settlement lead to a less expensive and less acrimonious divorce than family court proceedings.


The first step is hiring the best lawyer/mediator.

Whether it's divorce, child custody or child support, clients benefit from Michael Nathans' expertise in family law and his dedication to helping individuals and families successfully and cost-effectively resolve their family legal matters.
