Navigating successfully through family issues can often be very difficult for all parties.

At the Law Offices of Anthony R. Scifo, our firm helps many Elgin families attain manageable solutions through mediation. As an alternate form of dispute resolution, mediation offers a less stressful setting for talking through important matters like:
-Maintenance amounts and duration.
-Estate issues affected by a divorce.

Generally, mediation occurs in a neutral setting where parties can communicate openly about their issues. Each party may need to meet a few times or even several times to reach agreement.
Once parties reach an agreement, they can then appear in court to finalize it. Unless the court declares otherwise, the details of a divorce agreement through mediation are legally binding and confidential. However, it is very important to have complete understanding of each element of your divorce agreement.
Note than a mediator does not make decisions or suggest one position over another. Rather, they serve as facilitators to help spouses come to a common ground to solve disputes.
