Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am a Nationally Certified Divorce Mediator. Most divorce cases do not require a full on litigious process. The majority of divorcing couples are "most of the way" there, with a handful of disputed points to work through. By utilizing a mediation process, you can quickly be set on the path to a uncontested divorce. During the course of just 3 - 5 sessions lasting 90 minutes each, we will work to identify and value marital assets, document debts and discuss to mutual agreement the fair and equitable distribution of those assets and debts. Additionally we will work through any alimony or child support calculations and negotiate agreeable solutions to both requests. Once we have reached agreement on the fair and equitable distribution of assets and liabilities I will draft your Memorandum of Understanding that you will submit to the Judge in Family Court if you are representing yourselves or to an attorney who can file it with the court on your behalf. The National average to complete a litigated divorce requires 17 months at a cost exceeding $30K dollars. When compared to using a certified divorce mediator who will fairly represents both parties, you can expect to complete an agreement on an uncontested basis in 3 - 5 sessions at a fraction of the cost. Divorce Mediation IS the most cost and time effective way to achieve an uncontested divorce. If you are considering divorce, let's discuss your options at no cost for your initial consultation so we can determine if using mediation to settle your divorce is the most cost effective and timely manner available based on your individual situation.

Michael is incredible at what he does. His level of professionalism is TOP NOTCH. My husband and I went from what we thought was miles apart to an agreement in the first 30 minutes of talking with Michael. He responds quickly, is non judgmental and kind. I would not hesitate to seek out his help again in the future if needed.

I would like to let folks know that I had a very good experience when I reached out to Dispute Resolution Group. Rep Michael reached back to me right away once I placed a request to speak to the company. I felt he was helpful, very genuine, and answered all my questions and concerns that I had requested. I will be choosing this company for my services in the future when the need arises.

I am in NC and was in desperate need of finding someone to help me figure out my next steps in a dispute with a major home improvement retailer. Mr. Bekiarian was TOP NOTCH in all aspects and has helped to set my mind at ease. No question...he is the best!!!!

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I am a nationally certified divorce mediator. I bill $180 dollars per mediation hour. The average number of mediation sessions to complete the process is 3 - 5 sessions at 60 - 90 minutes per session. Once we have achieved agreement on all points, I will prepare your MOU which is submitted to the courts as the basis for your uncontested divorce proceeding. The MOU is charged as a separate piece of work at a flat rate of $450. This cost includes 1 revision, any additional revisions of a material nature will be billed at $180 an hour. There is NO RETAINER required. Fees are paid at the end of each session on a pay as you go basis, this keeps the mediation affordable without large retainers paid for each party. There are no additional charges for research or review of your case, you only pay for our mediation sessions.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We will have a brief call at no charge to discuss the mediation process, I will explain the fees associated with mediation as well as prepare you for what you will need in order to successfully complete the mediation resulting in an uncontested fair and equitable divorce. Throughout the process we pay close attention to the emotional state of each party to improve the chances of finalizing an uncontested divorce. We will always keep any children and their health and wellbeing front and center during this process.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I am a Nationally Certified Divorce Mediator and a NJ Superior Court qualified Rule 1:40 Civil Mediator. I have a Masters degree in Management with a focus on organizational change and have been conducting mediation sessions since 2007 in civil, employment and as of recently, divorce, marital and parenting plans.
