Divorce Mediation Lawyer in Chicago
Helping You and Your Spouse Achieve a Peaceful Resolution
If you made the decision to move forward with a divorce, you are likely aware of the options available to you. You could go through litigation and hire an attorney, opt for a collaborative divorce, or choose divorce mediation. If you and your spouse have decided to move forward with divorce mediation, we encourage you to call our Chicago divorce mediation attorneys at the Law Offices of Jonathan Merel, P.C. We can help you peacefully dissolve your marriage, so you can avoid a nasty courtroom drama.
How Does it Work?
Mediation involves the divorcing spouses and a mediator. A divorce mediator does not advocate for either party; instead, the mediator’s job is to help facilitate negotiations until a couple reaches a mutually agreeable settlement. This is why it would also be wise to have an attorney on your side. Unlike litigation, the mediation process is far less contentious and an effective approach for spouses to forego the heartache and hostility that is often part and parcel of this inherently adversarial method.

The Benefits of Choosing Divorce Mediation
Divorce mediation can do more than simply provide a more amicable means of dissolving a marriage.
- It takes less time: No one wants to spend more time than they have to when it comes to ending their marriage. Since you will not be at the mercy of the court’s schedule, you and your spouse can complete the mediation process in a few sessions.
- It costs less: A divorce that takes less time also comes with a much smaller price tag.
- It is better for your kids: If you and your spouse have children, you have even more reason to divorce amicably. Divorce mediation will help you work on your ability to cooperate, compromise, and negotiate with your co-parent as you move forward. Since you will continue to be in each other’s lives as you raise your children, these will be vital tools.
- It is confidential: When you go through divorce litigation, the details of why your marriage failed will be accessible to the public, which can be an uncomfortable position for couples. Divorce mediation keeps these details private.
- Your resolution is customized: If you leave your divorce up to a judge, you and your spouse might not be happy with the outcome. You are far more likely to be pleased with your divorce settlement if you have a hand in it.
