b2ap3_thumbnail_Untitled-design-36.jpgOften times, couples cannot reach a complete agreement regarding their divorce but would like to avoid filing for a contested divorce. When this occurs, seeking mediation can help them reach an agreement and lessen the burden of the divorce process. 

Mediation involves a couple working with a neutral third party mediator to discuss and resolve divorce-related issues. If you and your spouse are unable to reach a divorce agreement, you should consider mediation in order to reap the following five benefits.

  1. Greater Privacy. By choosing mediation, you will be able to work out all of your divorce-related issues behind closed doors instead of in an open courtroom. If you would like to make sure your conversations and negotiations are private, seeking mediation is a good idea because anything that is said during mediation cannot be repeated in court. 
  2. Faster Resolution. With mediation, you can focus on reaching an agreement on matters related to parenting time and division of assets at a pace that you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse decide on. You can schedule appointments with the mediator at times that are convenient for both of you rather than having to consider the judge’s calendar. 
  3. Improved Co-Parenting. Since mediation promotes cooperation and compromise, it can help you and your ex-spouse become better co-parents. In addition, mediation will allow for a less stressful divorce and give you both the opportunity to focus on the best interests of your children. 
  4. Lasting Decisions. Research has shown that couples who use divorce mediation to come to an agreement are more willing to honor their decisions than those who have to abide by court-mandated decisions. Working together to create an agreement for the future can also help spouses form a positive relationship that will improve their lives as well as the lives of their children after the divorce.
  5. Money Savings. Divorce can become expensive very quickly. The good news is that mediation can help a couple save money on their own court and attorney fees by expediting the process. If you opt for mediation, you can share the cost of it with your spouse.

DuPage County mediators and guardians ad litemDivorce and other domestic matters, such as requests for parenting time and/or allocation of parental responsibilities for a child born to non-married couples, are emotionally charged and complex matters. As such, they are often difficult to navigate, even for those that wish to resolve matters amicably. Illinois family law courts understand this and have provisions in place to help families work through their domestic disputes. Learn more about guardians ad litem and other court-appointed mediators, including what they do and why you might need one, with help from the following information.

Guardians ad Litem

In family courts, guardians ad litem are appointed to protect the best interests of a child. They are often used when parents are unable to reach an agreement over the allocation of parental responsibilities and/or parenting time. They may also be used if there are concerns over neglect or abuse of the child. Much of what they do is investigation work - they examine the life of each parent, home, and support system. They often speak with the child and may even do surprise home inspections. They then present their information to the court so that the judge can make determination over the child’s placement.

DuPage County mediation lawyersMediation, an alternative dispute resolution (ADR), gives couples the chance to work out their differences in a controlled, neutral environment. It encourages them to compromise and develop creative solutions that work for their family. Though not for everyone, there are many benefits to choosing this route for your divorce – benefits that can be reaped by the entire family.

Mediation Can Save You Money on Your Divorce

Traditional divorce, or litigated divorces, can quickly accrue costs. First, there is the filing fee and court costs. Then you have your attorney fees, which can vary greatly and are dependent upon several factors, such as the level of contention between parties, size and complexity of the marital estate, and each party’s willingness to compromise. Mediation works a little differently. Though each party may still have an attorney present to ensure their rights and interests are not infringed upon, the process encourages the parties to work together. This can ultimately result in less billed time with the attorney, which can thereby reduce the overall cost of the divorce.
