If you’ve decided that divorce is inevitable, our Bergen County family law attorney will give you the options you have about how you want to move forward. For many couples, mediation is an affordable means to reaching a satisfactory conclusion within the divorce proceedings. Mediation works best if both parties agree to work together to resolve any issues such as child custody, the division of assets, and spousal support. A mediator will guide you through the process, helping you identifying those issues and sorting them out together. While mediation can still become a tense process, if both parties maintain a mutual respect for each other, in most cases mediation can provide a satisfactory outcome.
The major benefits of using mediation is that it is less expensive, faster, and less stressful than divorce proceedings. If you are unable to reach an agreement during the mediation process, you’ll need to go to court for a judge to issue orders. Mediation keeps the divorce firmly in your control, and many of our clients report feeling much more satisfied with the outcome. This can be less stressful on your children, too, as their parents are working together to ensure the best lives for everyone involved.
