For parents, their children are the most important people in their life. When it comes to protecting their children, parents are understandably willing to do whatever it takes—even fighting a long, expensive battle in the courtroom.
But is litigation always necessary? And is it in the best interests of your children? And how about your financial future or your emotional health?
You Have Other Options For Resolving Your Parenting Disputes
I am attorney Cynthia L. Lazar, a certified mediator in Lake County, Illinois. I am also a seasoned divorce lawyer, meaning I have experience with parenting plan cases of all varieties. From my decades spent practicing family law, I truly believe that, in many cases, mediation offers spouses the opportunity to effectively resolve disputes while saving money and hurt feelings.
Keeping things civil and cooperative is crucial as you move from your divorce to the next phase of your life: co-parenting with your ex.
Do You Realize How Much Litigation Can Cost You?
Minimizing legal fees is one of the primary benefits of choosing to pursue parenting time mediation in lieu of litigation. Unlike other civil matters, your parenting time case will not be bankrolled by a corporation or insurance company; you will bear the financial responsibility yourself. Every hour in the courtroom translates to real-world costs for you and your family.
Paying expensive legal bills mean you have less money available to look after your children’s needs and provide for their future endeavors, including college education. With all of that in mind, how would you prefer to use your money?
Issues You Can Resolve Through Mediation
Mediation can be used to resolve all of your parenting-related issues, such as the initial parenting agreement, visitation agreements, parental relocation and modification of parenting schedules.
