Resolve Family Law Issues Through Mediation
These days, many more clients are seeking family law mediation to resolve legal matters more efficiently and amicably. Through mediation, you can find effective solutions for divorce, child custody, child support and other family law matters without litigation.
At Margolin & Neuner, we are prepared to assist your family through the mediation process, either as your attorneys or as New Jersey family court mediators.
Much of our practice is devoted to resolving family law problems through mediation.
Through Mediation, You Control Your Family’s Future.
When you mediate, you retain more control over the outcome, timing and cost of the solution. The parties meet together with a mediator who acts as a neutral party in helping you identify and resolve all of the important legal issues.
The mediator’s most important job is to help the parties discuss all aspects of the situation safely and civilly.
The primary benefit of mediation is that it is efficient. All parties sit down with the mediator together to discuss the important issues, thereby avoiding a drawn-out exchange of phone calls and letters that lawyers must otherwise conduct to exchange ideas and proposals.
Because it is usually a quicker and more efficient process, mediation typically costs much less and causes considerably less animosity than contested or negotiated family law matters.
We Can Act As Mediators Or As Your Attorneys.
Our attorneys are prepared to act as third-party mediators or as your legal representatives through the mediation process. As approved mediators, we have training not only in family law, but also in helping parties to communicate.
We also can give both parties the information they need to understand and effectively resolve issues.
Most mediation cases conclude after three or four mediation sessions of an hour to two hours. As mediators, we will prepare a memorandum of understanding at the conclusion of the sessions that outlines the issues that were discussed and agreed upon, and send that memo to the lawyer for each party, if the parties are represented.
If you are not represented by lawyers, we can help you represent yourselves in the uncontested divorce process after mediation.
