It's costly not to mediate your divorce

A divorce can be expensive. Not only do the fees add up when you need to go to court, but it can also take a long time to complete the process in court. This can be emotionally draining.

You can save money, time and stress, however. Through mediation, you can avoid a drawn-out court battle, resolve issues amicably, and move forward with your life.

Mediation can cost less money

Bills add up quickly in a divorce. Every hour spent arguing in negotiations and time spent preparing for court can increase the amount your divorce costs. In mediation, you can keep the costs down by working to resolve issues outside of court.

In mediation, you, your spouse and each of your attorneys will work with a mediator. This mediator is a neutral third party, who can help guide you to make decisions that work in your favor. While the cost of a mediator may seem like a burden now, this process can save you from the costs of litigation.

There is a stay on divorces in Passaic County

Divorces have been stayed in Passaic County for the foreseeable future. They may also be stayed in nearby counties. As a result, it may be a long time before you can resolve issues in court. In mediation, you can make decisions today about your future.

You can stay in control of the decisions in your divorce

One big risk of going to court is that decisions are taken out of your control. A court may not agree with what you think is best for your family, and you could end up needing to make additional modifications through the court in the future. In mediation, you remain in control of the decisions about your divorce. You and your ex can work together to find compromises and solutions that work best for your family, today and tomorrow.

An experienced attorney can help you through the mediation process in New Jersey. That way, you can rest assured that you have an advocate by your side, regardless of whether your case is resolved in mediation, negotiations or if court becomes necessary.
