Divorce Mediation Keeping Couples Out of Court

Seasoned NJ Divorce Mediation Lawyers

To keep a couple out of court through divorce mediation depends on multiple factors. State legislation in terms of consensual divorce is a factor. Some states won’t require you to go to court at all if the divorce is being handled through mediation. Other states, like New Jersey, will require the couple to attend an uncontested hearing in order to obtain the judgment of divorce. After that, as long as the couple is willing to work together and is understanding of one another, most divorce mediation stays out of court. Research has shown that couples who go through divorce mediation are more likely to abide by the agreements reached during mediation. So, even after the divorce decree has been granted and a settlement has been achieved through divorce mediation, the chances that either party will need to enforce the agreement at a later time are dramatically less.
