Chicago Mediation Attorneys

The Simple, Private, & Respectful Divorce Process

Going through a divorce can get messy very quickly. There are a variety of issues to work through and if you and your spouse cannot agree on terms, you may have to go to court and have a judge settle the issues. However, if you and your spouse can agree not to use litigation as a way to resolve issues, mediation is a great option. In mediation, you and your spouse sit in a room with a Chicago mediation attorney and talk through various issues until you come to a reasonable conclusion. Mediation is a strategy that allows for a much quicker, quieter, and less-expensive divorce process.

For an unbiased, highly-qualified and experienced mediation attorney in Chicago, call Abramovitch Blalock & McKinnon, LLC at (312) 548-8886.

What Does a Collar Counties Mediation Lawyer Do?

The attorney is not there to represent either of you, but rather give legal advice regarding the necessary paperwork and help the two of you find resolution when at an impasse. After over 50 years of combined practice in Illinois family law, our attorneys have accumulated thorough legal knowledge and mediation skills. Oftentimes, a mediator is not a lawyer, and while this is certainly an option for you to pursue, you may want to also hire a lawyer to provide you with legal advice and walk you through the intricate Illinois divorce laws and procedures.

What to Expect During Mediation Meetings

The meetings themselves typically last a couple hours. The mediator’s goal is to help the couple to communicate peaceably and effectively with each other.

Your Chicago mediation lawyer may help guide you through some issues such as:

  • Child support
  • Custody
  • Spousal maintenance
  • Taxes
  • Insurance
  • Filing correct paperwork
  • Property-division

At our firm, we understand that even the “cleanest” of marriage dissolutions can be heartbreaking. We are here to help you and your spouse come to an agreement quickly, respectfully, and correctly. Call us at (312) 548-8886.
