Welcome and congratulations for considering divorce mediation. Michele M. Martin is a Divorce Mediator, proudly serving Saratoga, Albany, Schenectady, Fulton, Warren, Washington, Rensselaer counties.
Mediation allows those divorcing to decide how their story will unfold. Mediation is a positive and effective way for couples to take control of their separation or divorce without the expense, time and often damaging effects of litigation. Additionally, agreements reached through mediation can be more creative, detailed, and flexible than those reached through litigation.
My approach is client-focused. I view every case as unique and view the couple as the experts in what is the best resolution for them and their family. In other words, assisting my clients in proactively resolving the terms of their divorce and facilitating effective communication is integral to the success of the process. Divorce does not have to be a tragedy. Couples do not have to “fight it out”.
My husband and I ended our marriage approximately seven years ago and we chose mediation. Today we are friendly to each other, are financially independent and have been successfully co-parenting our son Max. I attribute much of our success to the fact that we used mediation. I truly believe that how you handle your divorce will influence the rest of your life and I am a passionate advocate for divorcing couples to preserve the opportunity to co-parent effectively and for both parties to start their new lives in a healthy financial position.
I offer a no-fee initial consultation where I’ll give you more information about the divorce mediation process and you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions. The free consultation will help you confirm that mediation and my services are right for you. I appreciate the opportunity to work with you.Get Started
