As an experienced New Jersey Divorce Lawyer, many clients ask me whether or not their case is ripe or can proceed to mediation. The answer is absolutely. The courts, and every attorney should be promoting mediation. It is a great way to try to bring the parties together to resolve your matter. However, there are some pitfalls that you need to be aware of. Number one, not all mediators are created equal. You want to pick a mediator that is familiar with your issues and has a good personality that the parties will respect. Number two, you do not want to go to mediation without first seeing an attorney because you don’t know what you’re negotiating. It is very important to know what you’re negotiating, know what the issues are before you step into mediation.
