Divorce Mediation

The idea of being cooperative in divorce and focusing on finding solutions may not appeal to you much right now, and that's all right. But it is important to make sure that how you feel now does not lead you to make poor decisions that will affect you for the rest of your life.

My name is Cynthia L. Lazar. As a certified divorce mediator, I devote a significant portion of my career to helping people in Lake County, Illinois, resolve complex divorce and family law disputes.

Do You Know How Much Divorce Litigation Can Cost?

Reducing cost is one of the primary benefits of choosing divorce mediation. Unlike other civil lawsuits, divorce cases are not being funded by corporations or insurance companies; you will get a bill. As the hours in court pile up, the numbers in your bank account will shrink accordingly.

What Can Divorce Mediation Resolve?

Anything that can be resolved through litigation can be resolved through mediation. This includes:

Just as important, resolving disputes through mediation can leave you better positioned to work together in the future. If you have minor children, this is critical as you will need to reach agreements on parenting issues if you share legal responsibility.
