About 99% of divorce cases now settle without a trial.  This is because since the divorce rate began to escalate in the late 1970’s, the statutory and case law have evolved and there are relatively few legal issues left to be decided by the Courts.

Most people are negotiating a settlement of their family law issues with the help of their attorneys and I have prepared many, many Marital Settlement Agreements.

Additionally, people are mediating a settlement of their family law issues with the help of a trained mediator. I was trained in 1984 as a mediator and have many years of successful mediation experience.

Recently, many family law practitioners have begun to use Collaborative Law to assist people in working out their family law issues--agreeing not to become litigators for the parties, and often using a mental health professional as coach and a financial expert as a joint resource.

Rarely litigation is required --usually when one party is unwilling to follow the laws of the State of New Jersey or acts dishonestly or vengefully.

Fortunately now, many people are negotiating Premarital Agreements before they get married--agreeing in good times how they will act in bad times concerning children and finances.

And often I have helped people to seek enforcement or modification of their Marital Settlement Agreements.
