Maybe New Jersey residents didn't hear the news: Oct. 18 was Mediation Settlement Day. But really any day is a good day for individuals going through a divorce to consider the benefits of mediation.
"What is mediation?" you might ask. Well, divorce mediation, otherwise known as collaborative divorce, involves a single mediator -- usually an attorney -- who helps the couple come to a divorce agreement that satisfies the needs and desires of everyone involved, including the children. Generally speaking, mediation is a humane way of going about resolving a range of conflicts, but people in New Jersey and throughout the country have found the process to be especially suited for divorce and family law.
