Description of Practice

Thank you for your interest in Divorce Mediation of North Jersey (DMNJ) where the specific needs of your family always come first. During mediation, I will guide you through negotiating issues related to your divorce in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner. Unlike the traditional divorce process, mediation is a self-determined process that helps you come to solutions that work best for you and your family. Through the cooperative process of mediation, parties will be provided with an alternative to the acrimonious process of traditional divorce proceedings that are handled through attorneys and the courts. As a mediator knowledgeable in NJ divorce, I will help you to make informed decisions as to what is best for you, saving time and money, and preserving the good will between parties. Through mediation you will be able to reach equitable solutions to complex issues in a confidential and supportive environment. Even if attorneys have been retained, mediation is still an option and you can reach an agreement in a fast and affordable manner. As an experienced divorce mediator, I help parties sort out the dynamics of their relationship, and cleverly help them to overcome impasses in order to reach a final settlement agreement. This is done through listening to the issues, getting to know personalities, providing information regarding New Jersey divorce laws, promoting and facilitating discussions, and suggesting solutions to contested issues. Because the parties themselves set up the agreement, post divorce conflict is greatly reduced or eliminated.
