MONMOUTH COUNTY MEDIATION IN DIVORCE
Mediation in Divorce Process:
In mediation, the mediator meets with both spouses together, usually without attorneys, to:
Help you identify the issues you need to resolve
Gather and share the information you will need to make decisions
Help you communicate about how to resolve the issues
Once an agreement is reached, the mediator prepares a Memorandum of Understanding (which is a non-binding summary of the areas the parties have reached agreement). The spouses bring the Memorandum to their attorneys for review. This is signed by both spouses and becomes a binding contract between them (eventually part of their divorce judgment).
