Divorce mediation is a process to resolve disputes between parties outside of the court system. Mediation as a form of alternative dispute resolution is a voluntary process based upon the parties' common interests. Mediation provides a fair, confidential and cost-effective means for resolving challenging issues in a manner that also can save the parties time and the strain of litigation. Contrasted to litigation which is about the past, mediation focuses on the future and moving forward.

He is chair of the law firm's Divorce and Family Law Practice Group. Mr. Podolnick received special training in divorce and family mediation from the Rutgers School of Law.

Why Mediation?

With mediation, the parties are in control-you and your partner are empowered to make the key decisions that impact your future. In addition to making your own decisions, the cost of mediation is significantly less-fiscally and physically-on you and your family.

Control the process. Speed up the timeline. Save money. Work toward a mutually acceptable agreement. For many, mediation amounts to a win-win resolution.

Separation, Divorce and Post-Divorce
