Kane County Divorce Mediation Attorneys
Dissolving a marriage does not have to involve contentious litigation. When couples approach it amicably to resolve their issues, mediation can be effective and cost-efficient option. In divorce mediation, spouses meet with a third party mediator to negotiate the terms of their divorce settlement outside of a court setting. Each party can be assisted by an attorney, if needed, experienced in divorce mediation. At Shaw, Jacobs, Goostree & Associates, P.C., our attorneys help clients through the process of mediation, and can many times save the clients the costs and time of mediation. We ensure our clients are fully informed about their rights and help facilitate resolutions that satisfy our clients’ needs and the best interests of their families.
Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Divorce mediation addresses the same issues as a traditional divorce including child custody, child support, property distribution, visitation, and maintenance / alimony. Mediation offers SOME advantages over traditional divorce litigation under the right circumstances. The traditional divorce process can both emotionally and financially draining. Couples who are able to work together to resolve divorce matters through mediation enjoy a number of benefits including:
- Cost savings in comparison to traditional divorce
- Faster resolution to divorce matters
- Less conflict and acrimony in the divorce process
- Less stress for children involved in the divorce
- The ability to control of the divorce and find personalized solutions
- Maintaining the confidentiality of financial and personal information
- Preserving a positive relationship for future co-parenting decisions
- Reduced need for post-decree modifications
- Reduced negative feelings toward former spouse and the divorce process
In some divorces, mediation is not a viable option. Where there are strong negative feelings and irreconcilable disputes, traditional divorce negotiation and litigation is often more practical. At Shaw, Jacobs, Goostree & Associates, P.C., our attorneys are experienced divorce and family law attorneys who can help guide you through the marriage dissolution process. We work closely with our clients help resolve difficult divorce issues while protecting your rights and interests.
