Lucks Law & Divorce Mediation is a full-service law firm, with the focus of our law practice on the defense of criminal cases on Long Island and in New York City.  We are also a full-service divorce mediation firm whose mediators are also experienced attorneys with in-depth knowledge of divorce law in New York State.  We can mediate your divorce in either of offices, in Valley Stream (1/4 mile from Green Acres Mall), or in Forest Hills (one-block from the Criminal Court).  Our experienced team of  lawyers/divorce mediators helps couples to arrive at amicable divorce agreements in a cooperative environment.  Our goal is to help your family amicably redefine your relationship and establish a new set of rules for future interactions, as you divorce.

Our divorce mediators/lawyers will help you understand New York State’s divorce laws and assist you in arriving at the best resolution for your particular situation.  We will address the following issues:  Child Custody, Child Support, Parenting Time (formerly known as visitation), Spousal Maintenance (formerly known as Alimony), and the Division of Marital Property.  As preserving a positive working relationship with your spouse is so important while navigating the often tense and overwhelming world of divorce, Lucks Law & Divorce Mediation will take great care to help both you and your spouse determine the best custodial arrangements for your children, as well as addressing other issues such as maintenance, child support, parenting time, and the division of marital property.

Should You Use Divorce Mediators?

Divorce mediation  in our offices in Valley Stream or Forest Hills takes place in a cooperative and non-adversarial setting.  This atmosphere should help you and your spouse to communicate with each other civilly, to more easily express your individual concerns, and to make joint decisions about important issues relating to your children and finances.  In contrast, the adversarial nature of traditional divorce litigation can set an angry and bitter tone, which can exacerbate the financial and emotional cost of getting divorced.  It also empowers other people to decide the future of your family and your money.  Rather than relying on the courts to make these important decisions, our divorce mediators will help you and your spouse to make them yourselves.

Utilizing a divorce mediation lawyer instead of traditional divorce litigation is beneficial for many reasons.  Because we mediate your divorce in a cooperative and non-adversarial setting, you and your spouse should be able to establish better lines of communication.  This has two obvious benefits.  First, you and your spouse will save time, money and heartache.  Second, this helps to ensure that your relationship remains amicable after separation and divorce, which, if you have children, will continue long after the ink on your divorce has dried.  Think about the sort of interaction  you will have with your spouse for years or decades into the future, as you work together to plan and share in the joyous moments of life:  birthday parties, bar mitzvahs, confirmations, sweet 16’s, graduations, weddings, grandchildren, and more.  Think about how much more pleasant these wonderful moments can be, if you and your future former spouse can get along.  By utilizing our divorce mediation services to redefine the terms of your relationship, you will improve the chances of your future interactions with your spouse being positive.
