Illinois Child Custody, Parenting Time and Support Mediation Lawyers

Rolling Meadows Child Support Mediator

Mediators for Child-Related Issues in DuPage County and Cook County

During a divorce, some of the most contentious matters that need to be resolved are those that involve children. Parents often do not see eye to eye on issues such as child custody, parenting time, and support. Mediation is often prescribed by the courts when parents are unable to come to an agreement on their own. Couples can also opt for private mediation to work out these issues before going to court.

At A. Traub & Associates, we are committed to helping clients resolve issues involving children in the most practical, effective, and cost-efficient way. Attorney Angel Traub is a certified family law mediator with extensive child custody, parenting time, and support mediation experience, and she has a high rate of success helping couples reach amicable agreements around these issues.

Child Custody, Parenting Time, and Support Mediation in Illinois

If parents are willing to work out child-related issues without the involvement of the court, mediation can be a good option. This is known as voluntary mediation. The mediation process is directed by a neutral, third-party mediator, who meets with participants and guides them toward finding common ground and reaching a settlement. If participants are able to resolve their issues through private mediation, they can save a significant amount of money on court costs and legal fees, and they can usually complete the process faster than through traditional litigation.

If a divorce or parentage case is already in front of the court, and the two sides are not in agreement on child-related issues, the court may mandate that they try mediation before litigating these issues. This is known as court-ordered mediation. Attorney Traub is on the list of court-approved divorce and family law mediators for DuPage, Cook, Will, and Kane Counties, and she is also on the approved list of financial mediators for Cook County.

The Advantages of Child Custody, Parenting Time, and Support Mediation

In addition to the potential to save time and money, mediation offers several other benefits, including:

  • Confidentiality: Mediation is a private and confidential process. This allows participants to freely express their feelings without fear that what they say will become part of the public record.
  • Flexibility: During mediation, participants are empowered to develop more flexible and creative solutions to address their specific circumstances. This is far more difficult to accomplish through litigation.
  • Friendlier Process: Mediation is held in a cooperative setting where participants are encouraged to work together toward a win-win settlement.
  • Better for Children: Because parents are working out their issues more amicably, the process tends to be far less stressful for the children.
