Bergen County Lawyers specializing in mediation

Mediation can be an alternate path to resolution in New Jersey divorce cases. When a couple has differing views on property distribution, child custody, taxes and or other essential issues, the option of working with a certified mediator can bring a resolution to differences for the couple involved. A neutral third party, called a “mediator”, helps couples work through the issues surrounding a divorce and helps the two reach a settlement.

Some issues that can be resolved with mediation include (but aren’t limited to) the following:

In mediation, the couple, with the help of the mediator (and possibly other attorneys as well), work out agreements on their issues. In some cases, coming to an agreement may come easy, but when agreements are hard to reach, a mediator intervenes to assist the process. The job of the mediator is to keep the lines of communication open between the couple and assist in them in coming to an agreement that both of them find acceptable.

A divorce mediator is a neutral third party, who doesn’t “work” for either parent. They cannot give advice to either individual involved. Mediators maintain neutrality no matter what the situation may be.

Mediation is confidential and can be a great option for you and your partner. Mediation helps initiate and keep the lines of communication for the divorcing couple, this is particularly helpful in divorce cases involving children.
