Mediation can help you divorce now

Until local divorce courts ease the restrictions on divorce proceedings, many people worry that they may have to simply live in marriages that are dysfunctional, at best, and dangerous, at worst. It is easy to feel trapped and helpless when legal avenues for dissolving a marriage are hard to come by.

Mediation can turn a contentious divorce into an uncontested one

You're getting divorced for a reason. It could have been substance abuse, infidelity or just your ability to relate to your partner degrading over time. Whatever the cause, chances are that you and your spouse don't agree on everything about divorcing. That can mean that feel like you have no option but to go through the courts. With a stay on divorce proceedings in many areas across New Jersey, that could leave you feeling trapped in an unhappy marriage.

Divorce mediation can protect your children from emotional damage

Divorce is hard on everyone in the family, no matter their age. This is particularly true for children, who don't get a choice in the matter. Children may feel like they should choose a parent. They may be emotionally exhausted from dealing with two angry, stressed out parents. The last thing a child going through divorce needs is to testify against one of their parents or to choose sides in a courtroom. If you and your former spouse choose mediation for your divorce instead of a court battle with no real winners, you can minimize the emotional impact your divorce will have on your children.

Understanding the highest goals of divorce mediation is key

There is a great saying that every divorce attorney should impart to his or her clients: "Keep your eyes on the prize." This saying is an excellent way to keep everyone focused on their core goals during divorce mediation. Couples can avoid the courtroom and get their marriage behind them as quickly, cost-effectively and peacefully as possible.

5 tips for women thrust into divorce mediation

Settling the issues you have associated with your divorce through mediation can help you to have the final decree issued sooner rather than later. Even though you might not relish the thought of having to work with your ex because the shock of him filing for divorce is fresh in your mind, mediation can still be a viable option because you will work with a mediator instead of you and your ex trying to work things out alone. The mediation process doesn't have to be as shocking as learning your ex was leaving you if you take these tips into consideration.

Points to consider about mediation in family law

You are ready for your marriage to end, but now the court says there is a stay on divorces. This is exactly what people are hearing in Passaic County and Essex County. What are you going to do? If you aren't going to wait for the stay on divorces to lift, you need an alternative. Mediation might be the key you are looking for. Since the divorce stay simply means that there isn't any divorce litigation, you can still get divorced if you and your ex can hash out the terms.
