Freehold and East Brunswick Mediation Lawyer

Helping You Navigate Your Divorce / Family Law Dispute

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Joint discussion: The third stage is the joint discussion, which is a time for discussing issues that need to be addressed.
  4. 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.
  5. Joint negotiations: Following the caucuses is join negotiations where the parties work together to come to an agreement.
  6. 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.

    "My case had a successful outcome."
    Ryan was compassionate, intelligent, efficient and thorough; he gave good advice, represented me in court, and was successful in winning a reduction in my property taxes. I wholeheartedly recommend him. I know he handles other types of cases as well.

    "Great job protecting my future"
    Ryan was a trusted adviser throughout the course of my legal issues. I was unfamiliar with legal proceedings and Ryan was able to explain to me my legal situation, and risks associated with various defenses and decisions I had to make. He took the time to explain all the scenarios to my satisfaction which gave me piece of mind and comfort. Ryan was also very responsive through various forms of communications (phone, email, text) which made keeping in contact convenient throughout the process. Ryan showed up on time (early in fact) to various appointments and appeared to handle relationship building effectively with opposing attorneys and the prosecutor. At the end of the day, I was very satisfied with the work done by Ryan as the outcome of my legal matter was better than I had expected and kept my reputation in tact, which undoubtedly will help me pursue my future career/professional ambitions.

    "Professionalism at its best"
    Mr. Gilbert has made my case easy and clear to understand without all the legal jargon. He took time to help me clearly understand my case and kept me updated with all occurrences. Also, the case had been postponed and he waited alongside and had a friendly chat at the nearby Starbucks and besides giving me a great case result, he made me feel as if I had someone by my side. Patient, honest, and soft spoken, Ryan is not someone else whom just told me what to do and I just say yes too, like previous attorneys I had. I will always suggest and use Ryan Gilbert as my attorney.
    - Former Client

    Attentive, fast responding, professional and expert is how I would describe the attention and service that I received from Mr. Gilbert. He solved my matter quickly and explained in very clear terms each step and set expectation for action on all sides. I was very pleased with how my matter was resolved and would recommend Mr. Gilbert to those requiring legal services. If needed I would absolutely seek Mr. Gilbert's council again.

    I found myself in quite a situation and Ryan could not have been more helpful in my time of need. Ryan worked tirelessly and did whatever he could to secure for me the best possible outcome. Even when I first called, I never could have imagined having my case resolve as positively as it did. Thank you so much Ryan!
