Mediation Lawyers Assisting Divorcing Spouses in DuPage County

Glendale Heights Divorce Mediation Lawyer

When spouses decide to dissolve their marriage, there are many issues that must be decided, including the division of marital property, the allocation of parental responsibility (also known as child custody), and whether either spouse will be required to pay child support or spousal maintenance (also known as alimony). Battling over these issues in court can become incredibly costly, so if divorcing couples are able to work together amicably to reach a decision in these matters, they will be able to save a great deal of time and money.

Mediation is one of the most effective ways that divorcing spouses can resolve disputes and agree on a settlement. In this process, a mediator will act as a neutral third party, helping the spouses understand their rights and obligations and working with them to reach an equitable resolution to any outstanding issues. The parties will split the cost of mediation (unless the judge in their case orders otherwise), and everything discussed during mediation will be private and confidential, with any disclosures made during mediation being inadmissible in court.

Advantages of Divorce Mediation

During mediation, couples will be able to work together to reach agreements rather than taking an adversarial approach to their divorce. This process encourages spouses to compromise and make decisions that are fair and equitable for everyone involved. This can be especially beneficial if the couple has any children, since parents will want to cooperate to provide for their children's best interests.

A trained mediation attorney can not only help spouses resolve disputes, but they can also help a couple understand all the legal issues that must be addressed during divorce, ensuring that all legal requirements are met and there are no omissions or ambiguities in their settlement. The mediator will also be able to help draft a marital settlement agreement and parenting plan, and following mediation, these documents will be presented to the judge and incorporated into the final divorce decree.
