The New York State Council on Divorce Mediation (NYSCDM) is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the highest professional standards of divorce mediation. Among its services to the community, NYSCDM works actively to promote family wellness by increasing public awareness of mediation as the preferred process for divorce.

Its Directory of Mediators, frequently updated, provides information for locating mediation services in your area. NYSCDM also provides a forum for professional mediators to discuss issues relative to accreditation, professional development and training, and interdisciplinary relationships.

As a service to the public, the NYSCDM Ethics Committee investigates client complaints involving our members. We invite your inquiries.
