Role of Mediation in the Monmouth County Divorce Process

The Law Office of Steven P. Monaghan, LLC Can Help You

The mediator in a divorce serves as a neutral communicator focused on finding solutions. He or she does not act as an attorney for either party and provides no legal advice.

If this sounds good to you, you may wish to consider divorce mediation.

Find the Right Mediation Law Firm

Successfully managing a divorce mediation requires deft skill in seeing all sides of an issue and then identifying the areas where there is, or could be, agreement. Such skill is even better when it has been honed by 60+ years of combined experience.

At the Law Office of Steven P. Monaghan, LLC, we have that skill and experience. Our founder, Steven Monaghan is a highly sought-after Monmouth County mediator, being called upon by New Jersey judges on more than 275 occasions to mediate complex cases.

He is also one of very few New Jersey attorneys to be certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a matrimonial law attorney.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Divorce Mediation?

If a couple has already reached many of the same or similar decisions regarding child custody, property division, child support, alimony and, in some cases debt division, they make good candidates for divorce mediation.

Some Benefits of Divorce Mediation

Some of the benefits of divorce mediation include:

  • Divorce mediation can be less expensive than a proceeding in court.
  • The proceeding is private.
  • It helps a family faster, as it is an amicable — not adversarial — approach.
  • When children are involved, having an amicable approach is better than an adversarial one, as it puts less stress on the family.

Family relationships are complex and going through a divorce makes it even more complicated. Especially in this situation, it is wise to find experienced legal assistance.
