Help in Reaching a Divorce Agreement

Mediation negotiations work toward reaching an agreement that accomplishes your goals in separating from your spouse and divorcing. You can avoid potential problems by having a well-drafted agreement that explicitly states all the terms to which you and your spouse agreed.  When you and your spouse have come to agreement on all issues, the lawyers as DiPoala Haber Law will use their experience to draft a contract that is enforceable in court and one that will allow you to get a divorce without either spouse ever having to go to court.

Getting You Divorced Without Going to Court

Once you have reached an agreement,  our attorneys will prepare the written agreement for you and your spouse to sign and all papers necessary for you to get an uncontested divorce, without ever having to appear in court.  We will take care of all of the necessary court filings and will provide you with a certified copy of your final judgment of divorce along with your divorce agreement once the judgment has been signed by a judge and filed with the County Clerk, making your divorce final.
