What is Mediation?

Schaumburg Attorney Mediators for Family Law Issues

Mediation is a form of dispute resolution that is used by many couples going through a divorce or child custody proceedings. The process involves a neutral, third-party mediator who is responsible for facilitating discussion between the parties and guiding them to a workable agreement. Family law mediation can help couples avoid stressful and time-consuming courtroom litigation.

While mediation is often utilized in many other areas of the law, it can be especially helpful for families facing divorce and parental responsibilities concerns. In fact, mediation may even be required in some cases that involve children and disputes over custody and parenting time.

Mediation is a confidential, cooperative method of alternative dispute resolution that allows both parties to play a significant role in developing an agreement. Unlike a judge, the mediator cannot make binding decisions, and while the mediator may be an attorney, he or she does not provide legal advice to either party. Instead, the mediator’s job is to ensure that the parties address all of the issues that need to be resolved using mediation skills and training. In most situations, mediation offers significant cost savings and more convenient scheduling compared to traditional divorce and family law litigation.
