Lawyer Providing Mediation for Divorce and Family Law Cases in Palatine and Mt. Prospect

In divorce and family law cases, entering the courtroom to resolve legal issues can be a stressful, expensive, intimidating experience. When matters are put in the hands of a judge, parties may worry that the decisions made will not take their needs or their family's situation into account. Fortunately, there is another way to resolve these issues. If the parties are able to work together to reach a compromise through mediation, they will be able to have more control over the outcome of their case.

The attorneys of A. Traub & Associates provide mediation services to divorcing spouses and parties in other types of family law cases. With our understanding of Illinois law and our experience representing clients in these types of cases, we can help you understand the legal issues that will need to be addressed, and we will work with you to reach decisions that both parties can agree on.

The Mediation Process

In some cases, mediation may be court-ordered, and a mediator may be appointed by a judge, while in other situations, parties may voluntarily agree to resolve their outstanding legal issues with the help of a mediator. During mediation, the parties will meet together with a neutral mediator, who will help them identify the issues that must be addressed, ensure they understand their legal requirements, and work to resolve all outstanding matters in their case. The mediator will not make any decisions; rather, they will help the parties work together to reach compromises they can both be satisfied with.

Mediation provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Efficiency - Mediation often allows the parties to reach a resolution to their case much more quickly and cost-effectively than they would through litigation. Rather than making multiple court appearances in which each party will need to be represented by an independent attorney, the parties can use as many mediation sessions as necessary to reach an agreement on all outstanding issues. They will typically split the costs of mediation, and when a settlement has been reached, they may appear in court to finalize the legal process.
  • Confidentiality - Anything discussed during mediation is completely confidential. If the parties cannot reach an agreement, the documents created during mediation and any communication between the parties cannot be used as evidence in court. This provides the parties with the reassurance that they can work out their differences in private, rather than in a public courtroom.
  • Cooperation - Working together to reach a compromise can help parties establish a cooperative relationship. This can be beneficial for parents who need to resolve issues related to the allocation of parental responsibility and parenting time, and it can help lay the foundation for a co-parenting relationship as they work together to raise their children in the years to come.
  • Control - None of the decisions made during mediation will be legally binding unless both parties agree to them and they are filed in court. Rather than leaving important family-related decisions up to a judge, mediation allows the parties to be fully satisfied that the outcome of their case will meet their family's needs.
