South Jersey Divorce Mediation

NJAPM | Accredited Professional Mediator APM

The adversarial court process is often ill-suited for resolving disputes among spouses going through divorce or family law proceedings because it can potentially, tragically and irretrievably destroy the ability of either parent to maintain a civil relationship after the divorce, which is essential if children are involved.

People who utilize the divorce and family law mediation process, as alternatives to a litigated divorce, will be able to get divorced faster and more cost-effectively. There will be less conflict as mediation requires both an element of trust toward the other spouse and a willingness to compromise certain positions in an attempt to reach a quick settlement. Hopefully, when resolution is reached, the parties will be able to have a quality post-divorce relationship as parents, whether for the benefit of the children or for the dignity of the people involved. Divorce and family law mediation are forms of alternative dispute resolution, or ADR. It allows you and your spouse or your partner to resolve issues such as child custody, child visitation, property settlement, and equitable distribution of property or division of marital assets and debt while never getting near a judge or having to go through divorce litigation. The divorce mediator will be an impartial third party who will guide you through the process of reaching an agreement so that there is no need for the litigation process.

Straightforward Advice and Guidance in Divorce Mediation

Please remember that the process of mediation is without limitation and mediation may be used also for disputes that develop long after a final judgment of divorce has been entered. For instance, if support needs to be modified or if a parenting plan originally established for your divorce settlement now needs to be changed or if your ex-wife or ex-husband or former partner is not complying with a court order or an agreement, mediation is an efficient and effective process designed to resolve the differences between two people rather than going to court.

The reality is that New Jersey has been a no-fault divorce jurisdiction for over 30 years. This means that whatever caused the end of your personal relationship has no bearing on how we address the important business issues. The mediation sessions are strictly business.
