Palatine Uncontested Divorce Lawyer
Finding Amicable Solutions in Family Law
Divorce does not always have to be a drawn-out legal battle. Collaborative law is designed for those couples who simply want to resolve their issues, cut their ties and move on with their lives. At The Law Offices of James M. Kelly, we provide divorce mediation for those in and around Palatine, Illinois, who wish to settle their divorces in the most amicable way possible.
While we understand that any divorce has its emotional and financial challenges, we also believe that finding amicable solutions are the best ways to promote your future well-being and that of your family.
The Advantages of Mediation
Mediation is a good option for those who know how they want to settle their divorces. It is also a good option for parents who wish to pursue joint custody, as it gives them the control to set custody and visitation schedules that work well for them. Mediation allows couples to direct their own affairs in consultation with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney.
Our firm provides a neutral space to facilitate an agreement that works for both parties. We seek to understand your situation, frame the issues and start filling in the blanks with solutions you provide. Our Palatine mediator acts as a neutral mediator to help clients:
- Develop reasonable expectations regarding assets, custody and visitation
- Understand their rights and obligations under family law
- Negotiate equal divisions of marital property
- Prepare a custody and visitation schedule that promotes the best interests of their children
- Draft a final summary of agreement
After both parties agree to a certain plan, they must only attend court with an outside lawyer to file their agreement and finalize the divorce. This not only saves time but also numerous legal and court fees.
