Divorce 

Divorce Does Not Have to Be so Difficult

Divorce Mediation

Ending your marriage is a significant life event that is difficult for everyone involved. However, there are different ways to go about it.  

In comparison to other methods, divorce mediation can be fast and inexpensive. With mediation, Andrew serves as a neutral third party (mediator) to help resolve your issues.

He does not make decisions for you, as a judge in a court of law would. Instead, he serves as an impartial facilitator that helps you and your spouse put an effective plan in place that governs your separation and how you work together going forward.

Once an agreement is reached, he drafts a Separation Agreement, which memorializes the terms.  He can also file the appropriate documents with the court.

With Divorce Mediation, you do not rely on our court system or attorneys to end your marriage  (although you do you have the right to retain counsel to help you).

There are many advantages to this approach, including: (1) it is much less expensive than going to court; (2) it is confidential, with no public record of what is discussed; (3) it is fast because you don’t have to wait on a court’s schedule; and (4) with the help of the mediator you control the resolution based on your agreements (rather than a judge).

Please call Andrew at 201-664-0540 or schedule a free consultation to learn more about divorce mediation and how he can help.

Uncontested Divorce

An uncontested divorce occurs when both people agree on all issues in the marital separation, including: alimony, child support, parenting time, division of assets, and any other marital issues. While the parties may agree on the terms of the divorce, it still needs to be made legal by filing the proper paperwork with the relevant court. This is where Andrew can assist.  

Andrew facilitates an easy, seamless process and makes sure all issues are reviewed and agreed upon. He then memorializes your divorce agreement by drafting the Settlement Agreement and files it with the court. This method of divorce is ideal if you are able to work things out with your soon-to-be former spouse. It saves a lot of time, money, and distress, allowing you to focus on the future rather than argue about the past.
