Enforcing Settlement Agreement New Jersey
In fact, our justice system is designed to promote and promote settlements. In the New Jersey Superior Court, Law Division, all contractual and economic disputes are generally subject to mandatory mediation with a court-appointed mediator, who agrees to voluntarily work up to 2 hours of his or her time in order to encourage the resolution of the cases to which they are assigned. Mediation is usually provided for in the initial phase of the proceedings and the presence of the parties at the trial is necessary. While the Mediator is not empowered to compel the parties to an agreement, early intervention with all parties present face-to-face can sometimes result in a settlement before the parties initiate a major preliminary inquiry. .
