Palatine Guardianship Mediation Lawyer

Mediators for Adult Guardianship Disputes in DuPage, Kane, and Cook Counties

Issues involving the care of disabled or aging loved ones can become very emotional for everyone involved. Family members often disagree over what type of care is required and who should be in charge of it. When one family member initiates guardianship proceedings, and others object, the dispute can become both emotionally and financially costly. Guardianship mediation can be an effective and cost-efficient way to resolve this type of dispute.

At A. Traub & Associates, we understand that guardianship proceedings are stressful for those involved, and we are committed to helping families handle this process in a way that benefits everyone. Attorney Angel Traub is a certified mediator with extensive guardianship mediation experience. Attorney Traub understands the complex issues that are often at play when a disabled loved one requires more extensive care. She works closely with those involved to help them come up with a peaceful and workable solution.

The Guardianship Mediation Process

The imposition of a guardianship is a major step that should not be taken lightly. In addition, the decision as to who will serve as guardian is very important to the well-being of the disabled family member. For these reasons, it is not uncommon for a concerned party to object to the guardianship and insist on an alternative arrangement. Unfortunately, the courtroom leaves very little room to address these concerns creatively and in a way that preserves valuable family relationships.

Mediation is an alternative form of dispute resolution that occurs in a cooperative rather than combative setting. During this process, a neutral, third-party mediator meets with participants in order to work out a peaceable arrangement that everyone can live with. Guardianship mediation can take place before a petition is filed in court, or after the petition is pending to resolve disputes among stakeholders. Mediation allows everyone involved to provide input and freely express their feelings in order to do what is best for their loved one.

Guardianship mediation, when it is successful, provides several benefits, including:

  • Lower Costs: Filing a guardianship case in court can be expensive, especially if the case is contested. By resolving any disputes ahead of time, it can clear the way for a smoother and less costly court proceeding.
  • Time Savings: Legal disputes can drag a case out for several months or even years. By mediating these disputes, the process of establishing guardianship can be completed much sooner.
  • Amicable Resolutions: Mediation allows parties to work together for the best interests of their disabled loved one.
