Mediation Offers an Alternative to Divorce Litigation


Divorce mediation in New Jersey is typically more cost-effective than traditional litigation. There is no need to pay retainer fees to two attorneys. There are no charges for court appearances and courthouse waiting time. One fee is paid to the mediator for the time they spent on the case. Mr. Goldblatt has a long history in East Brunswick, Freehold, and Wall, NJ, as a family law attorney. He can save you significant costs by acting as a mediator for your divorce.

Amicable Resolution

Agreeing to mediate means both parties are willing to work through the details of the resolution without going to court. This can improve communication between spouses during divorce and can help prevent future conflict


It is important to remember that it is difficult for children to cope with a disruption of the family. Choosing to mediate can reduce the impact of a divorce on your children, especially when compared to a lengthy child custody battle. A hostile or bitter litigation procedure that drags on can have a psychological toll on the emotional well-being of children. Having a skilled divorce mediator to help you through the process can ease tensions.

Additional Benefits of Mediation

Controlled Outcome

Mediation offers you the chance to control the final outcome of your divorce. In a traditional divorce, you present your case in front of a judge, who then makes the decision for you. This decision, made by a disinterested party, can have lasting effects on your family for years to come - regardless of whether you agree with the judge's final call. In contrast, mediation allows you and your former spouse to actively decide the outcome of the issues together

No Deadlines

Because mediation is a collaborative process, there are no pressing time restrictions. If you and your spouse can quickly agree upon the terms of divorce, mediation can be completed in a timely manner.

A mediation agreement is not binding until both parties sign a property settlement agreement. The number of sessions needed to reach a resolution of all pending issues depends on the motivation of the parties and the complexity of the issues. Sessions are therefore scheduled at the convenience of the parties and completed as soon as a settlement is agreed upon.


What happens during sessions with your spouse and mediator is confidential. There is no public record, unlike in the court documents that accompany a traditional divorce. If you specify that all discussions should be kept confidential, your mediator will not disclose any part of the meetings in future court proceedings.

What Is Discussed During Mediation?

During a mediation session, divorcing couples can discuss anything and everything related to their separation. Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can help you and your spouse come to agreements on:


Alimony, also known as spousal support, is meant to help lower-earning spouses adjust to their new lifestyle and financial situation. Of course, alimony can be a sensitive topic of conversation and can lead to dramatic courtroom conflicts during traditional divorce litigation. However, if both spouses are intent on staying on good terms, they can discuss spousal support in a conversation mediated by Jeffrey W. Goldblatt.

Other Divorce Alternatives

While Jeffrey W. Goldblatt recommends all divorcing couples consider mediation, it is not right for everyone. However, there are still other alternatives to stressful and costly litigation. As your family law attorney, Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can also assist you with:
Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested Divorce

In rare circumstances, divorcing couples are in complete agreement over every aspect of their separation. If you think your divorce is going to be uncontested, schedule a consultation with our attorney. Jeffrey W. Goldblatt can go over the details of your divorce with you to make sure that the agreements you've reached with your spouse are actually in your best interests. If he confirms that an uncontested divorce is a good idea for you, he can help you file all the necessary paperwork.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative divorce is similar to divorce mediation, with one important difference. While mediation involves two spouses meeting alone with a third-party mediator, collaborative divorce involves each spouse hiring his or her own attorney. Then, the spouses and their legal teams meet to negotiate the terms of the divorce. Each party must take a pledge to avoid trial, so many of the benefits of divorce mediation still apply. You can settle your separation out of court, saving time, money, and stress.
