Northern Illinois Divorce Mediation Attorney
Are you interested in exploring an alternative to potentially expensive and time-consuming divorce litigation? If you and your spouse wish to terminate your marriage without involving a judge, divorce mediation may be right for you.
Northern Illinois Divorce Mediation Lawyer
We have guided many couples through divorce mediation. At Illini Legal Services you will find an attorney with over 30 years of experience who will counsel you on the mediation process. We understand that mediation is not appropriate for every situation. Our goal is to inform you of the benefits and risks involved so that you can make a decision about pursing an alternative dispute resolution method such as no-court divorce.
During mediation, you and your spouse will work with a neutral third party mediator to negotiate the terms of your divorce. A mediator does not have the authority to make determinations on your behalf. The entire decision-making process is left to you. As your legal counsel, we will act as a sounding board—evaluating your situation and advising you on what you might expect should you take your case before a judge.
All family law issues—except child support—can be mediated. Decisions regarding property division, asset distribution, child custody, and parenting time are made by you, not a judge. You know your family situation better than anyone, and the mediation process gives you and your spouse control over your divorce settlement.
Some cases, such as post-decree joint custody modifications, must go through the mediation process before full litigation. We have extensive experience guiding clients through the mediation process as it applies to post-decree modifications. Contact us to learn more.
Divorce mediation is a much less adversarial, more dignified approach to marriage dissolution. The process can facilitate stable relations between you and your spouse. Mediation can also minimize the likelihood that one spouse will take action to modify the terms of a mutually agreed-upon divorce order.
