What can I do to make sure my mediated divorce is successful in New Jersey?

There are several reasons why a couple may choose mediation when going through a divorce. In order to go through a successful mediation, consider taking the following measures:

  1. Do your research: You will want to make sure that you learn the process of a divorce mediation before you enter it. You can research things like your rights and responsibilities, child support issues, and your financial documents and status.
  2. Pick the right mediator: When going through mediation, you will have a neutral third party involved in helping you and your former spouse reach an agreement. Make sure you and your partner pick the right person to avoid difficulties down the road.
  3. Control your emotions: It is common for couples to not feel the emotional toll of the divorce process, however, when it comes to disagreements on sensitive topics, you will want to ensure that you remain calm. Furthermore, it is completely acceptable to take a break during the mediation to ensure that emotions do not run high.
  4. Keep an open mind: The purpose of mediation is to reach a compromise and seek out creative solutions. This means things may not go 100% your way. It is essential to be prepared for this and you will want to work through this with your partner and the mediator. As a result, it is critical that you keep an open mind because you may reach an agreement that you would not have thought of if you hadn’t considered all options.
  5. Be honest: A successful mediation only occurs when both spouses are honest with themselves, each other, and their mediator. That is why if something does not feel right, or you would like to go over an issue again, it is important that you speak up.
