Contested divorces often become legal battlegrounds which set the stage for future disagreements, adversely affect children, and can take up to two years to complete. If you are seeking a better way to handle your divorce, you do have options. Contact Cherry Hill divorce mediation lawyer Tejal V. Patel to schedule a free 30 minute initial consultation about how she can assist you with a faster, saner, and more harmonious approach known as divorce mediation.
What is Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a voluntary process in which the divorcing couple actively negotiates the terms and agreements of their divorce under the supervised guidance of a neutral mediation lawyer. As a NJ divorce mediation attorney, Tejal V. Patel provides objective legal information and promotes communication between the parties. Participation is done on an agreed-upon basis until the parties freely reach a settlement of their disputes. Mediation creates a foundation for continued cooperation after the divorce. It permits couples to create their own post-divorce arrangements through practical and personalized problem-solving. In this type of process, couples maintain more control over their divorce and are much more able to reach mutually-beneficial settlements.
The advantages of mediation are that it costs less, is voluntary, easier on children, easier on you, faster than litigation, gives you control over the divorce process, and is both a positive and confidential process, meaning that the records are not made public. In mediation, you and your spouse control how quickly or slowly decisions are made and what those decisions will be for such issues as parenting plans and division of property and assets. Each step of the process is by agreement as opposed to the adversarial process of a litigated divorce where attorneys set court dates and judges make the decisions about these very important and personal aspects of your life.
