Mediation: A Less Contentious Option

In addition to resolving family law matters through the traditional court system, we can also help divorcing and unmarried couples resolve their disputes through family law mediation. Mediation allows you and your ex to work through your problems together without going through the adversarial court process. Mediation is often less expensive and less emotionally contentious. We will thoroughly review your situation and let you know whether this may be an option to work for you.

Adoptions

Our attorneys help clients grow their families through adoptions. We handle stepparent adoptions as well as traditional unrelated adoptions. We can help you through the entire legal process for establishing an adoption.

Divorce and Family Law Mediation Lawyers in Chicago

Divorce and other family law matters are emotionally exhausting in even the most agreeable of circumstances. The emotional fallout is often magnified by the adversarial nature of the court system.

Helping Resolve Your Family Disputes Without Going to Battle in Court

Mediation enables couples to craft a divorce agreement that both parties can live with. All of the typical aspects of a divorce case that need to be decided in court can also be reached through mediation, including decisions concerning property division, child custody and visitation, child support and spousal support. Mediation is also useful for nontraditional families, such as unmarried couples, who are going through a breakup and need help reaching an agreement.
