STILL SAVING YOU MORE THAN MONEY
Mediation is often significantly less expensive than a divorce. The cost of a contested divorce can vary widely, but some experts estimate that they start around $20,000, and go up from there.
A HOLISTIC PROCESS
The traditional approach to divorce by family law attorneys is usually far from holistic. Many divorce lawyers in NJ and family law attorneys focus only on what immediately benefits their client, not considering the interrelatedness of the family system and what serves their client in the long term. In mediation, we are conscious of how the well being of each of the family members is interdependent. When one client “prevails,” the winning party still has to work together with the defeated party and depend upon them for such things as complying with the terms of the agreement and co-parenting the children.
GOAL ORIENTED APPROACH
Even while mediation rests in the present, it is with a consciousness of intention towards the future. When people are encountering painful emotions and endeavoring to overcome overwhelming challenges, goals are invaluable. A focus on what is wanted can organize the present and lift people through distressing periods. When the present is trying, focusing on objectives can help reshape it into something more tolerable and bring about what’s wanted sooner.

“Rachel saw my wife and I through every aspect of our highly conflicted divorce. She helped us mediate contentious issues and showed constant compassion while maintaining her neutrality. When my wife relocated to another state before all the issues of our divorce had been resolved, Rachel availed herself to us by phone to see us through the process. I was extremely confident in her ability and grateful for her responsiveness to our needs. I hold her in the highest regard.”
