Why opt for mediation over going to court?

Divorce has long-lasting affects on those involved, especially if the couple in question has children. Many concerned parents in New Jersey want to do whatever they can to avoid confrontation and settle their differences in as amicable a fashion as possible. Those who are willing to peacefully discuss each topic of importance may want to use mediation to achieve a settlement rather than go to court.

Want to keep your divorce out of court? Consider mediation

Would you be surprised to learn that it is often possible to resolve divorce issues in a day? While it is true that this is definitely not always the case, if you and your spouse are able to engage in peaceful discussion and are both willing to cooperate and compromise, as necessary to achieve an amicable agreement, there is no reason you must endure a long, drawn-out process in court. Others in New Jersey have used mediation as a productive means of settling their divorces in a swift and economically feasible manner.

Mediation may help keep divorce costs down

When a New Jersey married couple decides to divorce, it activates a series of decisions and legal actions when one of the spouses files papers in court. If the couple has children, a co-parenting plan will be needed. Divorce does not always have to include litigation; in fact, many people nowadays are achieving settlements through mediation.

Divorce mediation: What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Many New Jersey spouses who divorce are merely looking for the swiftest and least painful means of achieving fair settlements and leaving their pasts behind them. If those involved are parents, children's best interests are often the central focus of proceedings. The good news is that there are options that allow couples to avoid litigation altogether, such as the mediation process.  

Divorce mediation: Should you give it a try?

When a New Jersey spouse decides to file for divorce, he or she typically has several options available. If there are children involved, that adds a whole other dynamic to the situation as well. For those who want to settle things as painlessly and swiftly as possible, divorce mediation may be the way to go. 

Perhaps mediation can help solve asset problems

New Jersey spouses often encounter various problems regarding property division and assets in divorce. Since there's a specific legal process in place, and various laws that may affect a particular situation, there is no set solution available for resolving asset problems in divorce. Each case is unique and concerned spouses typically fare best when they seek support from experienced legal advocates who can help them determine their most viable options. Sometimes, mediation is the answer.

When a New Jersey married couple decides to divorce, they must agree upon which process they want to use. In highly combative situations, it's sometimes not possible for spouses to resolve important issues, such as child custody, spousal or child support-related matters. In such circumstances, litigation is often necessary. Spouses who want very much to keep their divorces out of court may choose mediation or another form of alternative dispute resolution.

Choosing mediation can make divorce easier on the kids

Most people understand that divorce can have a profound, typically negative, impact on minor children from the marriage. That knowledge could keep parents who would be happier if divorced in a non-functional marriage out of a sense of obligation. Thankfully, there are other ways to reduce the impact of a divorce on children without staying unhappily married.

Mediation can reduce the strain of divorce on children

For many families facing an impending divorce, the biggest concern is the impact on the children. Studies make it clear that divorce can have a negative impact on children, affecting their emotional, social and even physical health. The more contentious and drawn-out your divorce becomes, the more likely it is that your children will experience negative consequences.
