Whether you are looking for a way to resolve disputes over property division, child custody, alimony, or any other issue related to divorce, we can help. We work closely with both parties to understand their needs and concerns, and to find solutions that are in the best interests of everyone involved.
With Dorit Goikhman as your mediator, you can expect a confidential and discreet service that will allow you to resolve disputes over property division, child custody, alimony, or any other issue related to divorce in a private and efficient manner.
One of the many benefits of divorce mediation is the ability to keep the details of your private matter outside of the court record. In divorce mediation, a specially trained attorney neutral can meet privately with both parties to address all issues relating to your divorce. This approach feels more like a guided conversation than an adversarial combat.

We pride ourselves on providing a personalized service that will help you move on from your marriage with the least possible disruption to your business and personal life.
In family mediation, we can avoid the many inefficiencies of the family court system. This includes expensive and time consuming discovery, unnecessary hearings, and stressful litigation.
By working with a neutral third party, parties are able to have open and honest discussions to reach an agreement that is tailored to their specific needs and circumstances. By utilizing mediation, parties can avoid a lengthy and costly court battle while reaching a mutually satisfactory solution.
A qualified professional can work with both parties quickly and efficiently, resolving all issues in a collaborative matter. This means that disputes can be resolved in a matter of hours rather than a matter of months or years, saving time and expenses for everyone involved.
One of the main advantages of divorce mediation is the tremendous cost savings over other divorce alternatives such as litigated divorce. Instead of wasting precious resources on unnecessary hearings, experts, and attorney's fees, the parties can preserve their assets by focusing on a solution oriented approach.
While a litigated divorce can take many months or even years of contentious proceedings, mediation can take a matter of hours. If you work with Off the Record Mediation Services, your mediator will discuss a reasonable time estimate for your matter in an initial consultation with both parties. In our first session, we can schedule out the entire process to ensure that we proceed expeditiously and in the most efficient manner.
How much does a mediated divorce cost? The costs of mediation should be compared against the costs of litigated divorce. In a litigated divorce, it is not uncommon for the parties to spend $10,000 to $15,000 each, even in a relatively simple divorce. On the contrary, mediated divorces can resolve for a small fraction of that cost. Some of our more simple mediated cases resolve for $3500 or less, which is typically divided between the parties. This means that a simple mediated divorce can cost as little as $1750 per party. For more complicated matters, the parties can expect to spend a bit more.
By focusing on solutions rather than posturing, we can ensure a more cost effective process. Parties often find that mediation can save them tens of thousands of dollars over litigated divorce.
