Illinois family lawyerDivorce mediation gives couples who are ending their marriage the opportunity to resolve problems outside of the courtroom. It involves a mediator who points out certain issues and helps couples come to mutual agreements. The goal of the mediator is to remain neutral but allow each spouse see both sides clearly. Five of the most common mediation myths include:

1. Mediation is not for couples who do not agree on anything.

It is important to note that you do not have to agree on everything with your spouse. The purpose of mediation is to assist you and your spouse in resolving divorce problems outside of court. A mediator can help you find a common ground and come to an agreement with your spouse.

Illinois divorce lawyerA divorce does not have to lead to a courtroom battle filled with emotions. With collaborative divorce, divorcing couples can avoid this and work together to come to an agreement. In recent years, this type of divorce has become more common. In fact, it’s been recognized by the Illinois Collaborative Process Act which will go into effect on January 1st, 2018 and was passed to promote the use of the collaborative process to settle more cases in Illinois. Let’s take a closer look at the meaning of the Collaborative Process Act.

DuPage-County family law attorneyWhen couples start to think about divorce, they often fear that it will be this horrible, contentious battle. They worry that both they and their spouse will be emotionally, financially, or mentally devastated (if not all of the above) by the end of it all. True, divorce is an emotionally difficult process with a lot of legal and financial complexities, but there are many couples who are able to divorce amicably.

Illinois Collaborative Divorce AttorneyThe good news is that Americans are staying married longer after decades of reported increases. According to the recent Census report, newlyweds married during the '90s are faring better than their counterparts who tied the knot in the '80s. Seventy-five percent of couples married in the latter decade are reaching their 10 year anniversaries, up three percent from those who celebrated their nuptials during the previous decade. The bad news still remains that one out of every two marriages in the United States will ultimately end in divorce.

If you and your spouse find yourselves part of the 50 percent considering divorce, a collaborative divorce may be an alternative option to the traditional legal process. Although collaborative law has been around since the 1990s, it is still a fairly new concept.
