Kane County Family Lawyers
Mediation Attorneys Serving Families in Elgin, Barrington, and Hoffman Estates
Navigating family issues can be challenging; having a neutral party to facilitate communication between involved parties can be beneficial to finding an equitable resolution. Whether you are facing a divorce or must make decisions about children or finances in the midst of a legal separation, working with a mediator may be a viable option. Be careful to select an attorney who has proven success and experience guiding a family law mediation.
The Law Offices of Anthony R. Scifo has helped many families reach amicable decisions through the mediation process. As an alternative form of dispute resolution, mediation provides a less stressful environment to discuss the details of how important family matters will be handled including, but not limited to:
- Uncontested divorce and legal separation;
- Maintenance amount and duration;
- Estate matters impacted by divorce;
- Property and debt division;
- Parenting time;
- Allocation of parental responsibility; and
- Parental relocation.
Mediation works well for families who are open to agreeable communication to resolve a conflict. If you are willing to work through your family law concerns without pursuing litigation, you may find that mediation offers many benefits. Some of those benefits include more control over the resolution timeline for your matter, increased confidentiality, reduced legal fees, and a potential for less stress on your family.
Experienced Mediator Serving Cook and Kane Counties
In general, mediation may take place in a neutral setting such as a secure office where parties can speak freely on confidential issues. Both sides may meet a number of times to make decisions on a list of important issues that impact each party. Once a mutual agreement is reached, both parties will appear in court to finalize the agreement.
Unless rendered to a court order, the details of a divorce agreement created through mediation are confidential and legally binding. It is extremely important to have complete comprehension of each aspect of your divorce or legal separation. Remember, a mediator will not make decisions or advocate for your position. They act as facilitators so that you and your spouse may find common ground to resolve your issues. We offer qualified mediation support to serve the needs of your family.
