Even Judges Know New Jersey Divorce Mediation Works
You would think by now that people would know New Jersey divorce mediation is the only way that one should even consider getting a divorce but alas, only a small percentage of couples are smart enough to use a mediation service as a means to peacefully and efficiently resolve their differences and come to a fair and equitable distribution of their marital assets and liabilities. If you're like most New Jersey couples contemplating a divorce, you've probably spoken to your friends and family but what about a family court judge? Well this New Jersey divorce mediator had just that opportunity and the results may surprise you.
For regular readers of my articles, you've seen me write about the benefits of divorce mediation in New Jersey and how couples who use it get much better outcomes in much less time and for a fraction of what a typical divorce would cost if you were to involve attorneys. Much to my surprise, the same sentiments were repeated in a seminar given by a family court judge as she espoused as follows:
I understand the decision to divorce is not an easy one but once it is made, the choice on how to proceed with your divorce is up to you. Do you take the expensive and contentious road and hire attorneys to hash it out or do you sit down and with the help of a New Jersey divorce mediator work together to design a settlement that works for both of you and your children? If you believe the judge, I think the choice is obvious. Don't you?
To file for divorce in New Jersey under no-fault grounds, the couple must have been living separate and apart in different residences for at least 18 consecutive months. There must be no hope of reconciliation in the marriage.
