Description of Practice

Thank you for your interest in Divorce Mediation of North Jersey (DMNJ) where the specific needs of your family always come first.

Lauren LoSchiavo is a highly experienced NJAPM accredited mediator who leads parties through the process from start to finish helping them to make informed decisions that fit the unique needs of their families in the areas of equitable distribution, spousal support, parenting plans, child support, etc.

Ms. LoSchiavo will guide parties through negotiating issues related to their divorce in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner. Unlike the traditional divorce process, mediation is a self-determined process that helps parties come to solutions that work best for them. Through the cooperative process of mediation, parties will be provided with an alternative to the acrimonious process of traditional divorce proceedings that are handled through attorneys and the courts. Ms. LoSchiavo helps parties reach equitable solutions to complex issues in a confidential and supportive environment.

Even if attorneys have been retained, mediation is still an option and agreements can be reached in an efficient and affordable manner. Because the parties participate in the mediation process together, post divorce conflict is greatly reduced or eliminated. DMNJ also handles pre/postnuptial agreements, separation agreements, property buyout agreements, etc
