When divorce mediation drags on too long, make sure

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.
