DuPage County Mediation Lawyers

Schaumburg Mediation Lawyer

Divorce Mediators Serving Wheaton and Rolling Meadows 

Mediation is an increasingly popular form of alternative dispute resolution that allows parties to work out their disputes in a cooperative rather than combative setting. During the sessions, the parties seek to settle their differences with the guidance of a certified mediator. The mediator controls the process, but the parties control the outcome. The mediation process can often be completed more quickly than traditional litigation, saving parties time and money.

At A. Traub & Associates, we are committed to providing the right legal solution to serve our clients' best interests. In many cases, mediation can deliver a resolution that all parties can be satisfied with. Attorney Angel Traub is a certified mediator with extensive experience helping clients mediate their legal disputes. She works closely with clients to develop peaceable and workable solutions that allow parties to put their disputes behind them and move forward with their lives.

We provide mediation for a wide range of legal disputes, including:

Voluntary Mediation vs. Court-Ordered Mediation

Mediation can be initiated by parties to a legal dispute before or after a case is filed. This is known as voluntary mediation. Mediation may also be required by the court in certain cases. This is known as court-ordered mediation. Key differences between the two include:

  • Voluntary Mediation: At any stage in a legal proceeding, the parties may voluntarily initiate mediation. This typically takes place before a case has been filed in court. Parties that agree to voluntary mediation can select their own mediator, and any settlement reached must be agreed upon by both sides. Voluntary mediation can work well for disputes in which the parties are willing to work together and want to avoid the costs of litigation.
  • Court-Ordered Mediation: After a case has already been filed, a court may order the parties to attend mediation. For example, if a divorcing couple is unable to agree on a parenting plan, then the court may order the spouses to attempt mediation. The court may select the mediator, or the parties may choose one on their own, depending on which county the case has been filed in. Though court-ordered mediation may be mandatory, settlements must still be agreed on by both sides. If no settlement can be reached, the parties may decide to extend the mediation or move on to litigation.
