Efficient, Cost-Effective Results Through Mediation
If you’re in the beginning stages of divorce, you may already be expecting the worst: bitter disagreements with your spouse and a drawn-out, expensive legal battle that may leave no one feeling satisfied. It doesn’t have to be this way.
Before the fight begins, call us. Mediation could be the most efficient and cost-effective way to resolve your divorce or other family law case. Call 618-277-3476 to learn more.
An increasing number of couples in Illinois are discovering how mediation can help them protect what matters most to them — parental rights, marital property and other important interests — with little or no fighting. Mediation can be especially helpful in divorces involving children, when parents wish to keep the situation as amicable and stress-free as possible.
If you and your spouse are willing to work through the legal issues together, mediation can be an excellent option. Our team at the Weller Law Firm will guide you through the process and protect your rights every step of the way.
Why Choose Mediation?
Mediation combines some elements of traditional courtroom litigation but also has important distinctions and advantages:
Each side is still represented by his or her own lawyer. Our clients benefit from attorney Stan Weller’s 18-plus years of mediation, negotiation and traditional litigation experience.
A neutral mediator helps both sides work through issues of disagreement. Unlike a judge, a mediator takes a more active role in helping sides find areas of agreement and compromise. There is a greater emphasis on finding solutions to issues like the allocation of parenting time and responsibility (child custody and visitation) and property division that both sides can benefit from.
A mediator’s recommendations are not legally binding. While the goal is to resolve legal issues through mediation as efficiently as possible, at the Weller Law Firm, we never veer from our commitment to achieving your goals. If the mediation process fails to result in a fair outcome, we will be prepared to advocate for you in court.
