Bankruptcy Mediation in New Jersey

Bankruptcy mediation is a useful tool in New Jersey bankruptcies to reduce costs and limit risks. While bankruptcy stops most litigation against the person filing bankruptcy, there are some types of litigation that can continue or even be filed in the bankruptcy case. For example, certain types of claims, such as fraud claims, are not discharged in bankruptcy so a creditor could file a complaint alleging that the claim should not be eliminated because of fraud. These types of litigations can be expensive and lengthy to litigate. One way to reduce time and cost is through mediation. Experienced bankruptcy attorneys on the approved mediator list, that both sides agree to, serve as mediators. Unlike arbitration, where the arbitrator hears both sides and decides who is correct, a mediator works to get the two sides to agree to a resolution of the dispute. A mediator will help both sides understand the risks, issues and costs of litigation and encourage a resolution that makes sense for both sides. When both sides come in with an open mind, there is a good chance the matter will get resolved.
