Some people forego their rights and entitlements because of the expense of court costs and civil litigation. The cost of litigation can be high, not only financially, but emotionally as well. Sometimes, family relationships do not survive contentious court actions. The good news is that not all disputes have to end up in court. There are other legally recognized dispute resolution methods that can be as effective as litigation without the time and cost spent to resolve a dispute in court. Mediation can be an effective way to resolve family disputes while preserving close family ties. This is why it’s important to have an Essex County mediation lawyer on your side.

What is the Purpose of Mediation?

The purpose of mediation is to give disputing parties an opportunity to settle their disputes without having to go through the court process. Disputes are settled through communication and negotiation facilitated by a mediator. Rather than having a court impose a decision as to the resolution of the dispute, the mediation process guides parties to reach a voluntary agreement to resolve their issues.

What Happens in Mediation?

In mediation, a mediator works with the disputing parties and facilitates discussions towards a mutually beneficial resolution of the dispute. Unlike an arbitrator or a judge in a court of law, the mediator does not decide the final outcome of the dispute. The negotiations and final resolution remain in the hands of the parties and their representatives if they have one.

Mediation gives disputing parties an arena to express themselves in a way that they cannot do in court. Their feelings are accounted for, which is important in diffusing anger and clearing up misunderstandings.

Mediation is also a private process as opposed to litigation, which is a public process. This means that private details such as the parties’ income and assets that are necessarily revealed in the litigation process can be kept private.

Do You Need a Lawyer in Mediation?

While you do not need a lawyer to be present with you during mediation, New Jersey law allows an attorney to accompany you and participate in a mediation on your behalf. A lawyer who knows the law and is not emotionally invested in the dispute can think objectively, uncover the main issues, and bring clarity to the situation. At Nitti & Nitti, you will have a certified mediator working for you to help you make the right decisions and get the best possible outcome no matter your situation.
