With it's outrageous property taxes and sky-high housing costs, living in Maplewood, Summit, Millburn or West Orange is extremely costly. So if you live in any of these towns, the assumption is that you and your spouse are doing quite well financially.
But even if that's true, it doesn't mean you have to waste your financial resources on an outrageously expensive lawyer-driven divorce process. Yet that's exactly what many Short Hills area couples - who don't know any better, do.
They think they have to hire lawyers "to protect what's theirs" or "get what they're entitled to." But how wrong they are. All they wind up doing is moving money from their bank account, into the bank accounts of their attorneys.
But you're smarter than that!
You and your husband or wife know it's better to put your kids through college rather than the lawyers' kids. And that just because you have the means or your case is complex, you don't have to spend $100,000 each (or more) on legal fees to get a result neither of you is satisfied with.
That's why we opened Equitable Mediation of Short Hills.
To give high net-worth couples a better option that enables them to preseve their wealth instead of throwing it all away it on an emotionally devastating and financially ruinous divorce.
So if you and your spouse live in the Short Hills area, have both agreed to divorce, and want to use mediation to peacefully and cost-effectively end your marriage, book an initial meeting for the two of you today.
