Certified Mediation For Effective And Creative Solutions

The issues that must be settled in a divorce are complex and far-reaching. Matters such as child custody, property division and spousal maintenance may be the subject of serious disputes, and many couples have difficulty communicating calmly at a time when doing so becomes critical. For many, mediation is a big part of the solution.

I am a court-approved, certified mediator for divorce and other family disputes, as well as an experienced family law mediation attorney serving DuPage County and other Chicago area counties. You are welcome to contact me anytime to discuss my services in either capacity and gain a better understanding of what to expect from the mediation process.

A Viable Path To Resolution That Keeps You In Control

While only a very small percentage of divorces go all the way through trial, inability to reach a settlement agreement by other means can lead that far. The costs and stress borne by people in intensely contested cases can be overwhelming. Most Illinois courts make pretrial mediation mandatory in disputed custody cases and, increasingly, couples enter mediation voluntarily to achieve goals such as:

  • Avoiding the very significant legal costs, added stress and time commitments that come with litigation or drawn-out settlement negotiations outside of mediation
  • Maintaining a high degree of control over the outcomes achieved through mutual agreement, rather than putting critical family decisions in the hands of the courts
  • Setting the stage for ongoing civil communication that will likely be necessary going forward in finalizing the divorce, co-parenting and other areas
