New Jersey judges recognize that in appropriate cases people may achieve more satisfactory outcomes in a less time consuming and less expensive manner by using mediation than litigation. Although courts solve problems, judges realize that the underlying problems in many disputes cannot be resolved by the decision of a judge or jury. Mediation provides the people with an opportunity to resolve many disputes permanently and effectively.
The fact is that most judges do not want to make decisions about your family after a short trial. Judges know that you have so much more information and they will hear only a small fraction of it in a trial. They want you to make the choices because this concerns your family and will have lasting repercussions.
Many divorcing spouses want to go to the judge to be able to tell their story. Unfortunately, this does not happen often in court. Instead, the judge gets small bits of information filtered through the rules of evidence. It is actually during mediation that your story comes out and gets told.
