It's important to learn how to compromise and come to conclusions without the the intense cost and the constant fighting.
Staci Leavitt Davidson was trained and certified by the New York State Unified Court System from the Office of ADR & Court Improvement Programs to be a divorce mediator.
Many times, the most stressful part of a divorce is the legal end of the divorce. It not only becomes the couples fight, but also the lawyers arguments. Couples can spend months in and out of the court rooms and constantly meeting with their lawyers just to come to NO conclusions. Besides the time, the expenses add up extremely quickly and a divorce can be very expensive.
Staci Leavitt Davidson listened to numerous patients complain about just the divorce process itself and decided it would be extremely beneficial to be able to help a couple listen to each other and work out compromise without the large cost. We want to offer an alternative to get some results but in a less stressful and inexpensive way. Staci meets with the couple together to to help the couple listen to each other without the fight. It is so wonderful watching a couple come to their own compromises to suit both of the spouse's needs and then can present this to their attorney. This option is also much less formal and more relaxed. The key tip to having a successful and stress-free divorce is being able to truly listen to each other and being able to sit down and have a mature conversation together.
When people get placed in a court room, many people feel the need to attack the other person, but here at Staci Leavitt Mind & Body that is not the technique we use. We want to keep the mediation as peaceful and civil as we possible can to make everyone happy. She helps the parties try to reach a mutually acceptable resolution of the issue.
It does take time, but it is definitely worth it.
How is Staci able to do this if she is not a lawyer?
Staci was trained by New York State Unified Court System in 2009 to become a Divorce Mediator. She spent many long and hard hours through the training of Matrimonial Mediation. This process was taught by many elite New York State Divorce Attorneys who taught and guided the mediators to become as efficient and professional as possible. Although Staci isn't an attorney she is qualified and to help mediate a divorce.
Her job is to be a neutral and unbiased third party in the room. She monitors and helps each party come to mutual acceptances and agreements. Staci, the mediator, does not decide the case, but rather, helps the couple communicate in a healthy and peaceful manner so they can try and settle the dispute themselves and then consult with their lawyers.
