She works closely with participants, bringing all parties together toward achieving a positive outcome. She is on the list of court-approved mediators for DuPage, Kane, Will, and Cook Counties.

Family Law Mediation


Family issues can become contentious and emotionally-charged, resulting in costly litigation that tears families apart. Mediation can be a viable option for resolving issues with adoption, paternity, and other family legal matters.

Divorce Mediation


Divorce is highly stressful for all parties, especially if children are involved. For couples who want to dissolve their marriage peaceably and in a way that preserves relationships, mediation can often be a successful option.

Probate Mediation


When a loved one passes away, disputes over estate and trust administration and other similar issues can drag on for months or years. Probate mediation can be used to successfully resolve even the most complex disputes.

Guardianship Mediation


Filing for guardianship of a disabled or elderly loved one is a major step that can cause family conflict and legal battles. Mediation allows family members to resolve guardianship disputes more amicably.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is an increasingly popular form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). It is a non-binding process that is facilitated by a neutral, third-party mediator. The role of the mediator is to help parties identify the underlying issues and find common ground toward resolving these issues in a way that benefits all participants. Mediation can be voluntary or court-ordered. In either case, both participants must be in agreement for an issue to be settled, and the mediator has no authority to impose a settlement that either of the participants is opposed to.

 

When to Use Mediation

Mediation can be used to resolve virtually any legal dispute. However, it is not appropriate in all cases. In cases in which there is a history of mental illness, domestic violence, and various types of abuse, mediation should not be used at all. There are also certain circumstances that increase the chances of a successful mediation.

MediationParticipants should enter the mediation process in good faith.
MediationParticipants should be flexible, open-minded, and willing to work cooperatively.
MediationParticipants should choose a mediator with extensive experience and a high success rate.

Collaborative Law

A collaborative law divorce is right for couples who want to bypass traditional litigation, but still want to have legal representation. Divorcing spouses and their attorneys agree to participate in good faith and maintain the status quo while the process is ongoing. If participants choose to withdraw from the process, their attorneys cannot represent them in a subsequent court case. This incentivizes all parties involved to reach a successful resolution.

Attorney Angel Traub is trained and certified by the Illinois Institute of Collaborative Law, and she has in-depth experience with the collaborative divorce process.
