Talking to Your Spouse About Divorce Mediation
New Jersey Couples Seeking Mediation
While you and your spouse may agree that a divorce should occur, you both may not agree on divorce mediation. Now you are envisioning all the finances needed to hire a lawyer, all the litigation fees, and other possible legal fees you both will have to pay for in order to finalize the divorce. This does not mean that divorce mediation is completely off the table as a viable option. There are a few things you can do to help possibly convince your spouse to consider mediation.
Asking your spouse why he or she won’t consider mediation is usually a good way to start. The communication between you and your spouse has probably suffered, but getting an understanding on the reasons why he or she is hesitant in going forward with mediation can help you or a mediator address those concerns. Sometimes just having your spouse try it by “going once” either during a free consultation or by speaking to the mediator over the phone first can help alleviate any concerns he or she may have been focusing on.
