What is Divorce Mediation in New Jersey?
When a couple in New Jersey decides to end their marriage they have a few options to carry out the divorce process. Although some divorces end up in court in front of a judge, there is an alternative that can, in most cases, be much easier and a lot less stressful than a trial. That alternative is divorce mediation.
During the mediation process, a couple is typically willing to put aside their differences and work together in order to reach mutual agreements on important situations. The mediation process consists of a neutral third-party mediator whose objective is to help the couple make these decisions in a peaceful and non-combative manner.
The mediator does not make any of these decisions for the couple. He or she simply works as an assistant to both parties to help them decide important issues. The mediator is expected to actually meet with both parties individually in order to help come up with an agreement with which both parties are comfortable.
Advantages of Choosing Mediation

- Staying focused on the matter instead of personal attacks
- Understanding and working toward long-term goals for both parties
- It can save time and money on many divorce cases
