Matrimonial Disputes: Divorce Mediation

Divorce Mediation Legal Services

Certified Divorce Mediator • Divorce Lawyers

The law firm of Taylor & Boguski encourages the use of confidential mediation in matrimonial disputes. While divorce always has disagreements, they can often be worked out in a non-confrontational manner without the stress of litigation.

The State University of New Jersey Law School at Rutgers has certified Michael A. Taylor as a divorce mediator

As a certified mediator, attorney Michael Taylor has extensive experience working with married couples who prefer to mediate their divorce settlement in a less confrontational manner. Divorce can exact an emotional toll on individuals and families. Mr. Taylor has the experience and patience to work with both individuals to reach a fair settlement between the two parties. He has represented and helped many clients reach agreements that meet their needs. We can often help you find solutions in a less adversarial manner than traditional legal processes.

Divorce can be costly and time-consuming. Divorce mediation law can resolve disputes before they reach the stage of litigation and trial. The process of divorce mediation (sometimes referred to as family mediation) is a less time-intensive and more inexpensive alternative to traditional divorce settlement or litigation. The rules of court proceedings are relaxed and the process is less formal.

Defending Against Domestic Assault or Restraining Order Charges

With substantial experience in both criminal defense and family law, the trial attorneys of Taylor & Boguski know how to approach and resolve domestic violence charges in New Jersey. We know that many defendants are arrested on minimal evidence due to the requirement that police officers take suspects into custody when the alleged victim shows any sign of injury. We also know that false or exaggerated charges of domestic violence can often appear in divorce cases or child custody disputes.

Domestic Violence Defense in a Wide Range of Situations

To work with experienced lawyers who can protect your interests in cases of domestic assault, family violence or restraining order violations, contact Taylor & Boguski in Mount Laurel. We work with clients facing exposure to punishment in these cases in both municipal court and Superior Court. Examples of the kinds of cases we handle include:

  • Simple assault of a spouse, significant other or any other member of the defendant’s current or former household
  • Aggravated assault cases that can be charged as domestic violence
  • Harassment or stalking charges
  • Violations of restraining orders, including violations of no-contact orders or support obligations
  • Terroristic threats
  • Property crimes, such as trespass, malicious mischief or intentional destruction of the alleged victim’s property
  • Our attorneys advise people involved with domestic violence charges to obtain legal counsel as quickly as possible and to avoid saying anything more than the minimum necessary to arresting officers or the alleged victim at the scene of the arrest or afterward. People charged with domestic violence offenses often think that a full explanation of who did what to whom and why will get them out of trouble, especially when the case seems minor. Unfortunately, these statements can often give the prosecution more evidence to use toward a conviction.

Avoiding Violations of Restraining Orders

If you have had a restraining order or order for protection entered against you, make sure that you understand what it covers. For example, re-entering your own property to remove your own personal belongings will usually be prohibited under the terms of a restraining order, and repeat violations can result in mandatory jail time. Our lawyers can protect your interests while developing the case for termination or modification of the restraining order in place against you.
