Mediation can provide a productive and satisfying alternative to the traditional adversarial court process. The goal of mediation is to assist the couple in reaching agreements that meet the needs of the family without the financial and emotional costs of a court fight.. At Hansen & Hildebrand our skilled neutral-mediators facilitate the parties making their own decisions about their issues. We create a private and confidential process that keeps the parties in control of some of life’s most important questions.
Mediation can be court-ordered for parties represented by lawyers who are at impasse or required for parents who have custody or placement issues. Mediation can also be a proactive process to assist self-represented couples in navigating their divorce or other family law issues. Hiring one of our trained mediators instead of two lawyers and working in a cooperative negotiations process can reduce conflict and cost. Our mediators assist couples in gathering all information needed, discussing options for resolution, and drafting the legal documents necessary to file and complete the divorce process. The lawyer mediator can involve other neutral professionals, such as child or financial specialists, as needed.
Attorneys at Hansen & Hildebrand, S.C. have experience acting as lawyer-mediators to facilitate divorce in Wisconsin. To learn more about mediation or contact one of our Milwaukee divorce mediators contact us for more information.
Too often self-represented couples return to court after their divorce is finalized to fix mistakes or argue about legal ramifications that one or both did not understand. Our mediation process helps self-represented couples avoid the issues that arise when legal decisions are made without full understanding of the impact on their family and financial future. Our lawyer mediators will assist them in gathering information and brainstorming settlement options to create their agreement.
Mediation is an excellent option for couples who have reasonably good communication and a commitment to jointly share information and discuss settlement options that meet the needs of all family members. Working with a neutral lawyer mediator can help couples not only get their divorce done efficiently, but also get it done right.
