New York Legal Assistance Group (NYLAG): The Mediation Project
Who We Are
The Mediation Project mediates for free divorce, including division of marital property and debts; parenting time and decision making (custody/visitation); child and spousal support; and family conflicts for people who are not married but have children in common. The Project helps the parties to mediation find pro bono or “low bono” attorneys to advise them during the mediation and review any agreement before they sign it. NYLAG files the signed agreement with the court to become an enforceable judgment or order.
