South Orange/Maplewood Divorce Mediation Lawyer

Exploring Alternatives To Divorce Litigation

Even if most of the issues in your divorce are relatively uncontested, traditional litigation can quickly become a significant investment of time and financial expense. Moreover, many individuals have little opportunity to influence final outcomes because all decisions will be based on the evidence presented in court.

Fortunately, there are alternatives to divorce litigation. Attorney Nancy S. Feinberg of Feinberg & Feinberg assists clients throughout the South Orange/Maplewood area in all aspects of divorce mediation. Her experience includes representing clients involved in the mediation process as well as serving as a Court-approved mediator for others, in which she represents neither party and instead facilitates the mediation process as a neutral.

Why Use Mediation?

In mediation, individuals and their counsel work with a neutral mediator outside of a court setting to resolve all the common issues in a divorce, including child custody and parenting time; child support and alimony; and the equitable distribution of marital assets, retirement accounts and other marital property. In this way, clients take a more active role in developing mutually beneficial resolutions tailored to their unique needs.

Mediation can also be an effective way to minimize the time and costs often associated with divorce because parties can meet on their own time, as opposed to waiting for court hearings.

In a negotiated settlement, clients have the flexibility to resolve their issues and choose their priorities. These options are rarely available when a divorce matter is litigated and a judge orders the final outcome.

In addition to her role as a Court-approved mediator, Nancy has served as a Matrimonial Early Settlement Panelist (MESP) for Essex County since the program began in 1991. She also serves on the Essex County Family Law Executive Committee. Her experience and her commitment to seeking amicable, practical resolutions where possible have earned her a reputation as one of New Jersey's top family lawyers.

While we encourage clients to consider mediation when facing divorce or post-divorce modification, we also understand that it does not fit every situation or every case. With more than 35 years of experience in divorce and family law, Nancy will carefully assess your unique situation and help you determine the best dispute resolution given your particular needs, concerns and goals.
