Albany Mediation Attorneys/Lawyers

Divorce Mediation Lawyers Attorneys Albany Capital Region NY

Rhoades Cunningham & McFadden, PLLC has a vibrant and expanding mediation center run by Karen Rhoades, an experienced divorce attorney and trained mediator.

The mediation process allows you to focus on what is beneficial for your family rather than what the law dictates.  During the mediation process Attorney Rhoades will help facilitate the communication between you and your spouse as well as exchange financial information.

There are many benefits to divorce mediation. The ability to co-parent in the future – if you have children – is one major benefit to divorce mediation. Should you go through litigation, co-parenting after that stressful time can be incredibly difficult, and even impossible in some cases. Mediated results also have a significantly higher rate of compliance by both parties. This is because mediation helps to create the agreement together.

Most people are not happy with a decision made by a judge who does not know you, your family or your children. Mediation mitigates the need for a judge. If you think you can amicably agree to certain terms, or the thought of a judge deciding your fate scares you, it may be in your best interest to try mediation. Contact us today to schedule your mediation session.
