Attorney-Assisted Family Law Mediation: Legal Acumen With Emotional Intelligence

The Supreme Court of Illinois enacted the Second Judicial Circuit Family Mediation Program (Rule 21) in 2007. It was part of the state’s efforts to provide a framework for resolving family disputes outside of the traditional courtroom setting. Rule 21 is a specific legal provision mandating family mediation for certain family law cases, especially those involving child custody, support or visitation disputes. The rule outlines the procedures for mediation. It also details the qualifications and roles of mediators, the types of disputes that are subject to mediation and the effects of the mediation process on ongoing legal proceedings.

Family mediation is a process where a neutral third party, the mediator, helps disputing parties negotiate a mutually acceptable resolution to their issues. The mediator does not provide legal advice – just guidance for the discussions. Who protects your best interests when it comes to sensitive financial and custody matters? Attorney-assisted mediation means that you will have an attorney in your corner providing the clarity and confidence you will need to make informed decisions.

At Lake Toback DiDomenico, our lawyers will help you understand your rights in the mediation process as well as your options. They will stand as steadfast advocates and assertive negotiators for you when you enter into the mediation process.
