Low Cost Divorce Alternatives in NJ
Anyone who has been through a divorce can tell you that the financial burden can be devastating, especially if the divorce is contentious and drags on through the courts. If you and your partner cannot reconcile, you’d be wise to seek ways to keep your divorce costs as low as possible. The law office of Henry M. Weinfeld offers low cost divorce alternatives in NJ, including representation in divorce mediation.
Divorce mediation is a much less expensive route to cutting ties with your ex, and it is pay as you go, so the sooner you are able to resolve your differences and move forward, the less expensive it will be for both of you. The key to a successful divorce mediation is focus on trust and open communication, and for both parties to focus on resolution and reduced conflict.
Mediation cases, when both parties are amenable, can be resolved in as little as five meetings. During the mediation meetings, you and your partner agree to move forward with the process, seek outside professionals to appraise marital assets, discuss possessions from retirement options to selling your home, and review child and spousal support. In the final meeting, all of the parties review of Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), and ensure that it properly documents the prior decisions.
Remember that in most cases, the less acrimonious your divorce is, the less expensive it will be for you. Divorce mediation is one of your better options for low cost divorce alternatives in NJ; it can save you thousands over a traditional divorce.
