New Jersey Divorce

The more you educate yourself about New Jersey divorce issues and the available resources, the easier it will be to make the best decisions possible throughout the legal process and beyond. We provide a directory of divorce professions, including lawyers, paralegals, mediators, and divorce recovery coaches to name a few. 

If your funds are tight, doing your own divorce is less costly than hiring a lawyer if you and your spouse can agree on the major issues. And we have resources to help you out if you choose this method. You'll also find out how to access the divorce laws and child support tools for NJ, look up domestic abuse hotlines and shelters throughout the state, plus find area support meetings to help you recover.

We also have more general information about getting a divorce, child custody and visitation issues, dealing with the emotional changes of divorce, and starting over in our various divorce articles.

Getting divorced is one of the most difficult life challenges that you may face. Instead of choosing the destruction of attorney-driven litigation, couples have the option of resolving their case in a more civilized manner.  Mediation focuses on constructive resolution of divorce issues and allows people to maintain control over the outcome, retain their privacy and stay out of court.

We work with our clients to educate them on their legal options and help them negotiate a fair settlement, as well as provide emotional support along the way. In the end, your divorce will be more efficient and child focused.

Our all-inclusive, flat-fee divorce mediation services enable client couples to complete all of the steps to divorce peacefully, cost-effectively and without lawyers.

I coach women both through the divorce process and afterwards into a  new and vibrant life. We concentrate on coping skills during the turmoil and pain of the actual divorce process and then move forward to work  through the stages of divorce recovery (grief, anger, denial, resentment, fear, confusion, etc.) in order to learn how to let go of the past.  We then begin the work of creating a new and vibrant life after divorce, one that is based on the client's passions and values. Start to heal your pain, let go of the past, and move forward into your new life!
