Lawyers for Amicable Divorce Solutions in Naperville and Plainfield

Getting a divorce is often a complicated process. In addition to dissolving your legal partnership with your spouse, you will need to completely separate your lives from each other. This may include finding new living situations, closing joint bank accounts and credit cards, and determining how the two of you will share the responsibilities of raising your children. Reaching decisions on these issues can often be difficult, especially if your relationship has broken down to the point that you can no longer discuss matters in a civil manner. Fortunately, there are several alternative dispute resolution methods you can use, including mediation.

The Law Office of Ronald L. Hendrix, P.C. provides divorce mediation services to help you resolve your outstanding legal issues, and we can also provide legal representation for spouses who are working with other divorce mediators. With over 35 years of combined experience, we understand the best ways to address the concerns faced by divorcing spouses, and we can work with you to create a divorce settlement that meets your needs.

Benefits of Mediation

During the divorce mediation process, spouses will work together with a divorce mediator to identify their outstanding issues and reach agreements on how these matters will be handled. The mediator is a neutral party who will not advocate on behalf of either party or make any decisions for the spouses. Instead, the mediator will facilitate discussions, help the couple understand how the law applies to their situation, and provide guidance on how to reach compromises that both spouses will find acceptable.

Divorcing couples often find that mediation provides a variety of advantages over contested divorce, including:

  • More control over the outcome - The goal of mediation is to create a divorce settlement that addresses all of the issues involved in dissolving the couple's marriage. All of the decisions included in this settlement will be agreed upon by both spouses. This ensures that the couple is fully satisfied with the decisions they have made, and it allows them to avoid the uncertainty that would come with leaving decisions up to a judge.
  • Working together - Mediation can help couples whose marriage has broken down establish a new relationship in which they cooperate in making decisions and determine how to resolve disagreements. This can be especially helpful for parents who will need to continue to work together to raise their children following their divorce.
  • Confidentiality - The divorce process can involve discussions about a variety of intimate details of the couple's lives, and many people prefer to avoid bringing these issues into a public forum such as a courtroom. During mediation, all communication between spouses is completely private and confidential, and none of the discussions or conversations between the spouses and/or the mediator are admissible as evidence in court. This ensures that both spouses will be free to speak their minds during mediation without fear that their words could be used against them.
  • Less time and expense - Resolving a divorce through litigation can often be very time-consuming, requiring multiple court hearings and a potentially lengthy trial. It can also be very costly, since both spouses will need to pay separate attorneys to prepare and review documents and provide representation in court. Mediation can greatly reduce these expenses, allowing a couple to share the cost of a single mediator. It can also help them reach a conclusion to the divorce process more quickly, and after a settlement has been reached, the divorce can be finalized in a single prove-up hearing.
