Knowing the Truth About Divorce Mediation

New Jersey Divorce Mediation Attorneys

With divorce mediation still being a relatively new process in New Jersey divorces, there is a lot of misinformation and misconceptions about what one can expect with mediation. For example, some people think that a mediation will allow one side to control the mediation. Just because someone may have a dominant personality does not mean that they will be allowed to dominate the mediation proceedings. An experienced New Jersey divorce mediation lawyer will make sure there is balance with both sides and if there is a power struggle occurring, stop the mediation as soon as possible. No one should be at an advantage or a disadvantage going into a divorce mediation, regardless of gender, financial status or any other cultural factors. Contrary to popular belief, mediation may actually have less hassle, take less time and can include a proper divorce mediation attorney. Most of the time, mediation can put you and your spouse in power and control of the settlement. You both can decide how everything is divided, how parenting schedules work out and various other agreements that would need to be decided by a judge or arbitrator in a traditional divorce. The job of the divorce mediator is to just help negotiate agreements between both parties and will not make the decisions for you.
