New York Divorce Mediation, founded by Harriet Gerber, Esq. provides a safe and non-adversarial environment offering mediation as an alternative to the traditional, litigated divorce. Ms. Gerber's practice is limited to divorce mediation, which encourages co-operation, rather than litigation.
Ms. Gerber's extensive mediation training and experience, combined with her background in mental health, can help you and your spouse identify and resolve issues related to your separation and divorce with fairness, mutual respect and confidentiality. Although Divorce Mediation is not therapy, her understanding of the emotional issues that accompany the end of a relationship will help you to stay objectively focused on the process, so that you will be able to reach an agreement which works for the whole family.
All mediation sessions are conducted by Harriet Gerber, Esq. Although an attorney, in her role as Mediator Ms. Gerber does not represent either you or your spouse but acts as an unbiased, neutral third party. At the conclusion of the mediation, after all issues have been resolved, you can hire Ms. Gerber to prepare your settlement agreement and uncontested divorce papers which will be filed with the court.
