Mediation Is An Effective Means To Resolve Disputes Without Litigation
You and your spouse or partner may wish to use mediation to dissolve your marriage, resolve post-decree issues or use alternative dispute resolution methods in a less contentious and less public atmosphere than that of a courtroom. The assistance of a trained, neutral mediator may help you arrive at a settlement agreement. The two of you and the mediator will meet to discuss and resolve your disagreements and outstanding issues.
At Greenwich Law Group, LLC, we serve as neutral third-party mediators. We assist in helping parties settle their differences and reach a tentative settlement. For information, please call us at 847-382-3995.
Protecting Your Interests As You Seek A Mediated Resolution
Mediators are usually, but not always, lawyers. Because of their neutral position, mediators cannot provide any legal advice. Their role is to facilitate a resolution by helping the parties find common ground, offer creative solutions and assist with communication between the parties. When we serve as third-party mediators, we do not give legal advice, but we maintain our knowledge of the law as we help facilitate an agreement between the two parties.
After mediation is completed, we will prepare a memorandum of understanding reflecting the agreement that the parties have reached. At least one party should retain an attorney to prepare all the necessary court documents and have the agreement entered with the court.
