Choose the Right Mediator

A mediated divorce involves two spouses working through the matters of their divorce with the assistance of a neutral third party known as the mediator. It is crucial that you choose the right mediator for this process.


Before the process begins, it is important that you do your research and learn as much as you can about the issues that you will be discussing. Consider researching the following issues:

  • Your rights and responsibilities
  • How child support is calculated in New Jersey
  • Basic understanding of your financial documents

Be Honest

When spouses enter a mediated divorce and are able to both be honest with themselves, each other, and their mediator, the process works best.

Gain Control Over Your Emotions

Divorce is a very personal and emotional process that prompts a big change. Many couples disagree on sensitive topics such as child custody and parenting time. It is common for emotions to run high during this process. However, it is important that you remain collected and rely on coping mechanisms when things get tough.

Have an Open Mind

When entering divorce proceedings, it is important to keep an open mind. Mediation is about compromise. It is okay that things do not always go 100% your way. Be prepared for this to occur and be willing to work through difficult discussions with your mediator and spouse.
