What is a Divorce Mediator?

There are few things more grueling than divorce litigation. However, if you and your spouse are unable to agree on your divorce terms, there is a very good chance you will enter the litigation process. Fortunately, there are other options on the table, one of them being divorce mediation. If this sounds like something that may appeal to you, please continue reading and speak with one of our experienced New Jersey divorce attorneys to learn more about what a skilled divorce mediator can do for you.

What is a Divorce Mediator?

What is the function of a divorce mediator?

Essentially, when you retain the services of a divorce mediator, you hire an unbiased, neutral third party whose job is to facilitate a productive, civil negotiation between you and your spouse. When you hire a mediator, you have a chance to work with both your spouse and the mediator outside of the courtroom setting to achieve a compromise that you and your spouse can accept.

Why should I hire a New Jersey divorce mediator?

People choose divorce mediators for several reasons, starting with the fact that mediation sessions are not conducted in a courtroom in front of other people. Mediation is private, and more informal than a courtroom setting. Additionally, mediation is known to save couples both time and money in the long run. Litigation is oftentimes a heated, drawn-out process, and attorney fees, among other things, frequently begin to pile up. What’s more, since spouses both choose and agree to enter the process, they are far more likely to accept the outcome of their divorce and have peace of mind knowing they achieved a fair compromise. In a mediation setting, the spouses can work together to craft the terms of the divorce that work best for them as opposed to relying on a judge who does not know the intricacies of the situation.

Finally, if you are a divorcing parent, you may find that the mediation process can also help mitigate the impact of your divorce on your children. By selecting mediation as opposed to litigation, you can teach your children an important lesson in compromising and cooperating with another person, even if you disagree. Additionally, children never benefit from seeing the contentious atmosphere between parents that frequently results from the litigation process.
