Divorce is often a messy, expensive, and emotionally exhausting situation. Mediation is an alternative proceeding available for uncontested divorce cases that allows a couple to make decisions about important aspects of divorce without going to court. As your East Brunswick & Freehold divorce lawyer, I can be instrumental in assisting you through negotiations pertaining to the dissolution of your marriage. I can help you achieve a peaceful resolution during your present conflict through this non-contentious process.
By retaining my firm's services, I can equip you with the necessary information to enable you to make educated decisions regarding the family law matters of child custody, child support, alimony, property division and many others. During a typical mediation process, both parties will meet with a third party, the mediator, to negotiate a resolution to the divorce.

Stages of Mediation in New Jersey
Six steps comprise a general mediation process:
- Mediator's opening statement: Stage one is the mediator's opening statement as he or she explains the rules and provides encouragement for each party to work together.
- Disputants' opening statement: Next is the disputants' opening statement. Each party can provide a statement as to what the dispute is about and how it has affected him or her.
- Joint discussion: The third stage is the joint discussion, which is a time for discussing issues that need to be addressed.
- Private caucuses held: Fourth, private caucuses are held, which allow each party to meet separately with the mediator to discuss the position and ideas for settlement.
- Joint negotiations: Following the caucuses is join negotiations where the parties work together to come to an agreement.
- Closure: The final stage is closure. If an agreement is reached by this point, the mediator can put the provisions in writing and both parties can sign. In cases in which no agreement is reached, the mediator can advise each party of his or her options.
Although this is a less formal alternative to family court, these distinct stages allow each party to mutually benefit from the results.
