Geneva Mediation Attorney
Elgin Alternative Dispute Resolution Lawyer
Batavia – Elgin – St. Charles – Geneva – Aurora
At the Law Office of Warren G. Sylvester in Batavia, we provide helpful and experienced representation to men and women going through or contemplating divorce in Illinois. We also handle all the issues that need to be resolved before a divorce agreement can be finalized, including child custody and support and the division of property and pension benefits.
By focusing on family law, we are able to remain current with changes in statutory and case law and their impact on the divorce process. This, in turn, enables us to provide superior service to meet our clients’ needs.
At our law firm, we believe it is generally in each client’s best interest to seek a fair and amicable divorce settlement. When that is difficult to accomplish, mediation can be a useful means of getting past the roadblocks to reaching a settlement.
In mediation, both parties agree to work with an independent third party to resolve the key issues, including child custody, visitation and parenting time; child support; alimony and spousal maintenance; and the division of marital assets and debts.
Both parties may have an attorney and financial planner present during mediation.
At the end of the process, the mediator drafts an outline of the settlement parameters.
Attorney Warren Sylvester is trained in alternative dispute resolution, including mediation, and provides legal counsel to clients throughout the mediation process.
