Divorce Mediation for Couples not in Good Faith

Seasoned NJ Divorce Mediation Attorneys

When it comes to divorce mediation, it is not a requirement for you both to be getting along. However, you both should be willing to negotiate in good faith and willing to compromise with each other respectfully. Divorce is a highly emotional subject and it is common for both parties to not be concerned about their ex-spouse’s well-being. This is where the job of an experienced divorce mediator comes into play. A good divorce mediator will change the dynamics of the negotiations and help stimulate respectful, quick communication between both parties. After that, as long as both parties can come to an understanding and are willing to give and take a little, an equitable settlement can be reached.

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.
