Divorce with Dignity Mediation Services - Official Site

Marking our 19th Year Anniversary in May of 2016



Founded in 1997, Divorce with Dignity Mediation Services provides family & divorce, and business/civil, mediation services.  All mediation services are provided by Anju D. Jessani, Accredited Professional Mediator, rather than associates or trainees.  Her Wharton MBA and her extensive experience working in the financial world make her uniquely qualified to conduct complex, economic mediations.   In their 2008 survey, Anju was ranked in the top 20 family/divorce New Jersey mediators by NJBiz

Our practice is almost entirely devoted to providing mediation services. We are passionate about mediation, and obsessed with providing quality service at an affordable price.  Having served as the mediator for over 900 mediation cases in the past nineteen years, you have the comfort of knowing that your mediation is being conducted by a true professional, who is recognized by her clients for her expertise, tenacity, and caring.  Anju is also active in training and mentoring mediators, and has trained over 1,000 professionals in the field of mediation.

The mediation and legal communities, as well as the New Jersey courts, acknowledge Anju as one of the most experienced and competent mediators in the region.  When people talk abut divorce mediation in Hudson, Hunterdon and neighboring counties, Anju's name comes up time and again, from multiple sources, as a trusted resource, colleague and service provider.

Locations & Services

We have professional offices in downtown Clinton in Hunterdon County, and also in downtown Hoboken in Hudson County.  Please visit our Clinton page and Hoboken page for more information, including directions and parking information for each location.  We can mediate any New Jersey or New York divorce through these offices, as there is no requirement that your mediation be held in the county that you reside.  As a member of Regus/Corporate HQ, we also have access to professional meeting rooms throughout the state, if neither of our office locations is convenient.  We are also willing to meet at your attorney's offices. 

Family & Divorce Mediation Services

We are completely familiar with the divorce and child support issues that relate to New Jersey and New York cases.   This is very important as family law is specific to each state, with nuances that can make a significant difference to the outcome of your case.  Our Divorce Mediation page provides more detailed explanation of the divorce mediation process, including a list of documents you might need to provide to your mediator at a later date. 

We also offer services through the New Jersey Judiciary's Administrative Office of the Courts' (AOC) Economic Mediation Program for Family/Divorce Cases, Rule 1:40 for cases that have not settled at the Court's Early Settlement Panel.  Additionally, for complex and high conflict cases, we offer collaborative mediation services, a hybrid of mediation and collaborative law, where we work with the clients directly, but have periodic five-way meetings with our clients and their attorneys, at critical junctures in the mediation process. 

We also specialize in providing post-divorce mediation services. Changes in circumstances as well as the child's age may necessitate new arrangements. Blended families, couples contemplating commitment, as well as families in crisis can utilize mediation to address/define financial and parental roles and responsibilities. Because of our urban locations, we have significant experience mediating conflicts for clients with different socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. We provide mediation to families, stepfamilies, conflicts regarding college choice and funding, domestic partners, civil unions, roommate disputes, never married couples, grandparents, and extended families, and are gay friendly.

Additionally, we offer coaching/consulting to individuals going through separation or divorce, either through mediation or litigation, where we are not serving as the mediator. This can be especially helpful for clients going through court-ordered mediation.

Business/Civil Mediation Services

We offer business/civil mediation services through the New Jersey Judiciary's Administrative Office of the Courts' (AOC) Presumptive Mediation Program for Civil Cases, Rule 1:40.   We are also registered through the Central Contractor Registration database with the U.S. Federal Government for government mediation assignments including with the United States Department of Agriculture.  Anju is registered with the New Jersey Foreclosure Mediation Program to assist New Jersey residents save their homes. 

On a private basis, we offer business mediation services through Executive Mediator Services (EMS), an organization of highly experienced executives in business, commerce and the professions, that helps resolve disputes and close deals by mediation, online, on-site, worldwide. 

As an experienced mediator, Anju serves as a mentor to new mediators seeking co-mediation experience to qualify for admission to the roster of AOC mediators. She has also served as an instructor for training classes in Advanced Civil Mediation, as well as a facilitator for the Union County's annual civil mediation training program. 

We also offer coaching/consulting to individual businesses and organizations going through the mediation process, where we are not serving as the mediator. This can be especially helpful for clients going through court-ordered mediation.

Feedback From Our Clients


To know the road ahead, ask those coming back.  Chinese proverb


"Your incredible grasp of the financial issues really helped us to  come to a realistic agreement. We know that in the future, our children will thank us for choosing you as our mediator."


"You did a thorough and impartial job, which made us both feel comfortable."


"You were wonderful. You never lost your calm, and were understanding of my pain and anger."


"You took a lot of pain out of something I never really wanted to do. Both my former wife and I felt like we were being helped by a friend. This would never have been possible with the traditional litigation process."


"You are very pleasant and kind, in addition to knowing what you are doing. My lawyer was quite impressed with you too!"


"We felt you were always fair and impartial.  When we disagreed on issues, you provided relevant information, helped us to understand each other's perspectives and to establish common ground."


"In our marriage, my spouse managed our money.  By working with you on the balance sheet and budget during mediation, I finally understand our finances and am better prepared for the future."


"We appreciate that you have been available to help us deal with the many changes in our lives and with our children since our divorce.  We didn't realize that mediation was going to be so beneficial going forward."


◊ "I found you to be incredibly professional, tactful, and compassionate. You took so many worries off our minds so that we could concentrate on the work of healing and moving on."


In our sessions with you, we communicated better than we did in marriage counseling.


"This is an absolutely wonderful practice that saved me a lot of time, money and acrimony. Do yourself and your kids a favor...   mediate through Divorce With Dignity first!!"
