Experienced Divorce Mediation Services

Ever since we were established in 2010, Finger Lakes Mediation and Divorce Coaching LLC has been helping individuals and families going through or considering divorce. We are here to assist spouses who both agree that ending the marriage is the best course of action.

Divorce is a particularly contentious issue to take to court. Mediation is an alternative route that can be used to facilitate productive discussions about assets, alimony, co-parenting, child custody, and other relevant issues. Our owner and mediator, Michaele Gantz, is a Certified Divorce Coach and Recovery Coach who strives to make the entire divorce process simple, respectful, and fair.

Finger Lakes Mediation is a neutral party that considers the needs and wellbeing of every person involved in the mediation process – including children. Learn more about how our practice prioritizes the rights and wellbeing of children here.

We Can Help with Spousal Maintenance & Alimony

Even in the best of times, big financial decisions can put a lot of stress on a family. This stress increases tenfold when it comes to divorce, which will more often than not reshape the financial futures of the spouses.

The issue of spousal maintenance, which is also referred to as alimony, is one of the toughest parts of divorce. Spousal maintenance is a spouse’s responsibility to financially provide for the other spouse before and after the divorce. This matter is often decided by a judge during court proceedings. However, using mediation services puts the decision-making power in the hands of the spouses.

Finger Lakes Mediation is here to ensure that the ultimate conclusion is fair and beneficial to both parties, and that no one is left with an undue burden they cannot reasonably fulfill.
