Court-Appointed Versus Private Mediation in DuPage County
Many disputes arise in life. Often, these disagreements are serious enough to require a neutral third party to guide you toward a successful and beneficial conclusion. It is wise to seek the counsel of an attorney who has a great deal of experience in alternative dispute resolution.
The DuPage County mediators at Andrew Cores Family Law Group have extensive experience in both collaborative law and mediation. Our lawyers are skilled at dispute resolution and our clients appreciate our ability to resolve even the most complex disagreement in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
- Court-appointed mediator: While skilled, these mediators only have a certain amount of time to spend to assist you in resolving your disputes. Often, court-ordered mediation is limited to three hours of mediation, and one hour to complete paperwork. Additionally, a court-appointed mediator only focuses on child related issues.
- Private mediator: In contrast to a court-appointed mediator, a private mediator can guide you through any dispute — family law-related or otherwise. It is also important to remember that a private mediator is not limited to the specific time constraints. He or she can take as much time as is necessary to assist the parties in arriving at the best compromise possible. The only limits here are the willingness of the parties to work together.
The members of our firm have extensive experience as both court-appointed mediators and private mediators. We are confident in our ability to work with you in any role to guide you toward a successful resolution.
