If your divorce mediation is dragging on too long, then you need to make sure too . . .
. . . dump your mediator.
That’s right. I said it.
There are some divorce mediators in Illinois who love to milk a divorce mediation for all its worth.
You’ve got to understand that many divorce mediators – many of whom aren’t even lawyers and never practiced in divorce lawyer – love to make money by conducting unproductive divorce mediation.
In fact, the less productive a divorce mediation is, the more they can make.
But I’ve got better things to do.
Pragmatic Divorce Mediation
As an Illinois divorce mediator and a divorce lawyer in Illinois, I know what people need to do to have a successful uncontested divorce in Illinois.
The last thing I want to do is sit around and hear people go back and forth forever.
If mediation isn’t productive, it shouldn’t happen.
When people are stuck, it should be a divorce mediator’s job to come up with viable solutions. But to many mediators just sit around asking, “So what do you think of that?”
As a divorce mediator in Illinois, my goal is a quick and successful mediation involving legally enforceable terms.
I wish you the best of luck with your Illinois divorce mediation.
