Lawyers for Family Law Mediation Matters in Illinois

Depending on the circumstances, filing for divorce can be a lengthy and expensive process. One way in which couples can simplify the process and save both time and money is by choosing mediation. Mediation is a type of alternative dispute resolution that involves using a third party mediator to help work out the terms of a divorce settlement. Through mediation, divorcing couples can work together to make financial and parenting decisions without having to go to court. At the Law Offices of Tedone and Morton, P.C., we help clients through divorce mediation. Our attorneys make sure you are fully informed about the impact of your decisions and know how to best protect your interests during mediation.

How Divorce Mediation Works

Divorce mediation is a voluntary process in which couples work with a mediator to negotiate divorce terms such as property & asset division, division of debt, child custody & visitation, child support, and spousal alimony. The mediator facilitates the divorce settlement but does not give legal advice or issue binding orders. If the mediation process is not successful in reaching a settlement, the case can go on to divorce court.

Divorce mediation has a number of benefits over conventional divorce proceedings including:

  • Allowing couples to maintain control over decisions affecting their personal lives
  • Reducing the amount of acrimony in the divorce process
  • Resulting in a higher degree of satisfaction on both sides
  • Saving time and expense spent in divorce court
  • Maintaining personal privacy

While divorce mediation is often the preferred option for reaching a divorce settlement, it is important to be properly prepared for mediation in order to protect your rights and interests. Our attorneys work closely with clients to ensure you are able to effectively advocate for yourself during mediation. If mediation is not possible or efforts at mediation fail, we are also skilled negotiators and litigators who are always prepared to effectively advocate on your behalf.
