Mediation may be worth considering for New York divorce

If the idea of having to go through drawn out courtroom litigation is holding someone back from ending a marriage, it may be worth remembering that conflict does not have to rule every case.

Parents' divorce can have negative impacts on adult children

Many parents worry about the effects that ending their marriage will have on their kids. In particular, individuals often have concerns regarding child custody and their young children.

Resiliency could have positive impact on New York divorce cases
