I practice divorce mediation proudly because I have seen it work! It is not only less expensive and traumatic than the litigation model; it actually allows a couple to end their marriage with dignity and self-respect intact. Is it for everyone? No! If you and your former spouse cannot put aside enmity and bitterness long enough for the sake of reaching an agreement, then it is not for you. Most couples are able to reap the benefits of mediation immediately. The first half hour is without cost so that you can consider this option. I think you owe it to yourself to at least discover what mediation can accomplish.
A new mediation service that has taken on higher visibility is referred to as Marital Mediation or Mediation to Stay Married.
For those who seek legal consultations or representation with their No-Fault Divorce, I am able to serve you as well. Finally, feel free to discuss with me the process of Collaborative Divorce for which I have been trained. Mediation and Collaborative Divorce are not identical, but both are non-adversarial in nature.
Martin Rosenfeld worked for 9 years as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Connecticut. He has been trained in both general and divorce mediation. Martin has prepared a lecture on Mediation for the National Academy of Continuing Legal Education. Martin is a member of the NY, NJ, and CT Bars. He is on the NJ Roster of Mediators. Martin is also a Collaborative Divorce attorney.
WHY DO I WANT MY COMPETITORS TO SUCCEED?
I am in a professional business to help my clients. The way I do so is by offering an array of mediation services. I recognize however that not all who consult with me will choose to retain me. Some will choose other mediators due to geographic location, references by trusted family or friends, or other factors that may be difficult to quantify. I am pleased to know that those who visit me wish to mediate their family or commercial matters. I am hopeful that you will choose me. That is a wish of everyone who has a professional practice. However, choice of mediator aside, mediation is a decision that makes great sense. If you will not come to me for a mediation process, choose one of my competitors. But please do mediate. It is a decision that you will never regret. Indeed, your children will thank you for it. And you will thank yourself. Mediate don't litigate.
You're invited to contact us online or call (201) 794-4545 to set up the 40-minute consultation. There is no obligation to you after this first consultation, nor is there any retainer fee. A party may feel free to terminate the mediation process at any time. But who would want to do so? Mediation is less time-consuming and less costly than litigation. The cost of a mediated divorce is approximately 25% of the cost of litigation. As stated above, mediate don't litigate
