"Don't Litigate -- Mediate!"


Although unfortunate, it remains a fact that about half of all marriages end in divorce.  With that many divorces, it has created a large burden on the court system and the participants.  But an alternative to a court litigated divorce is available that is quicker and less expensive: mediation.


If you are contemplating a divorce or are in a period of separation, it can be a scary time in your life.  There are many uncertainties....what about the kids...who gets the house or car...how will I be able to live...how does all of this work? 


Sanns Mediation Services is the private practice of NJ-based professional mediator and arbitrator Marvin Schuldiner.  Sanns Mediation Services gives a free consultation to all divorce mediation clients.  This will allow you to assess the mediator and have any questions about the mediation process answered.  It will also allow me to determine if you are ready for mediation.
