What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation in Illinois refers to a voluntary and confidential process where divorcing couples work with a trained and neutral mediator to resolve the various issues associated with their divorce. This process aims to help couples reach mutually acceptable agreements on any divorce-related matters such as property division, child custody, child support, spousal maintenance (alimony), and any other relevant issues.

How Divorce Mediation Works

During mediation, you and your spouse will work with a neutral mediator to discuss your concerns and come to an agreement on any disputes over one or more divorce-related issues. Our mediators will guide you through the process and help you maintain a respectful and productive dialogue, even when emotions are running high.

The following are the steps of divorce mediation:

  1. Initial Consultation - The journey begins with an initial consultation where we get to know your unique circumstances and explain the mediation process. This meeting allows us to understand your goals and expectations.
  2. Gathering Information - We'll work together to gather all necessary information, including financial documents, to ensure that the mediation process is comprehensive and covers all relevant issues.
  3. Open Communication - During mediation sessions, both parties will have the opportunity to express their concerns and desires. Our mediator will facilitate discussions and help identify common ground.
  4. Negotiation and Agreement - As we progress through the mediation process, our goal is to reach agreements that are fair and equitable to both parties. Once all issues are resolved, we'll draft a legally binding agreement.
  5. Finalizing the Divorce - With your mediated agreement in hand, we'll guide you through the process of finalizing your divorce, including any necessary court filings. Our goal is to make this step as smooth as possible.

Our goal is to help you and your spouse reach an agreement that works for both parties and allows you to move forward with your lives. If you have children, we prioritize their needs and ensure that any decisions made are in their best interests.

Divorce mediation offers numerous benefits over traditional litigation, including:

  • Cost-effective: Mediation is often less expensive than going to court.
  • Confidential: Mediation is a private process that allows you to keep your personal matters out of the public eye.
  • Time-saving: Mediation can often be completed more quickly than going through the court system.
  • Better communication: Mediation allows for open and honest communication between spouses, which can be helpful in resolving disputes.
  • Better outcomes: Mediation allows you to have more control over the outcome of your divorce, instead of having a judge make decisions for you.
