Wheaton divorce lawyersWhile many divorces can be stressful and contentious, the vast majority of divorces can be settled amicably by the two parties involved. When a judge becomes involved in the divorce process, the outcomes are no longer in the control of the people impacted by them the most. If you and your former spouse believe you can work through the divorce process together, a collaborative law divorce may be the right choice for you.

Collaborative divorce is a process in which couples who have elected to file for divorce, can work with their lawyers to achieve a mutually agreed upon settlement. If you and your partner want to attempt to work through the collaborative divorce process, it is important to consult with your legal team to begin preparation for the process.

As former-spouses begin the process of establishing new lives apart, financial complications, custodial issues, and other details can make the divorce more complicated than initially anticipated. When a couple decides that a divorce is their best option, they have two choices. They can enter a courtroom and let lawyers, and ultimately a judge, decide on issues of custody and alimony, or they can proceed with mediation — a process in which the two former-spouses sit down with attorneys and a mediator and decide together how to best deal with financial and custodial issues.

In the state of Illinois, mediation represents a way to amicably and cooperatively work to find the best ways to deal with issues such as division of marital property and parental responsibilities. In the event that issues arise and cannot be resolved in a mediation setting, moving the case into a traditional family law setting is always possible. 

Consider the following reasons why mediation may be the right decision for you and your family. For additional information, contact a knowledgeable mediation lawyer today.
