We are able to take cases to court, but also can assist clients who wish to seek a resolution that allows for respectful and agreeable communication throughout the process. Attorney Rickey J.

Divorce Mediation

Mediation is a voluntary process where the parties to a divorce or family law matter retain the services of a neutral, third-party mediator. The mediator does not represent either party in the proceeding and provides neutral guidance and recommendations to the parties in the negotiation process. With attorney-mediator assistance, the parties work together in an amicable fashion. The dispute resolution process itself fosters a fair, equitable and mutually agreeable settlement of issues such as child custody, visitation, child support, spousal support and property division.

Advantages Of Divorce Mediation

Mediation is typically a more cost-effective and productive alternative to litigation. While keeping costs down by keeping the case out of court, you can also move the divorce process forward at your own pace, as you do not have to schedule through the court but with the attorneys, mediator and other party. This often results in a faster end to the divorce, allowing you to get on with your life sooner and begin living by the win-win agreement created during the mediation.

Trained Mediator Rickey Ament

In addition to being able to represent clients in the mediation process, attorney Rickey Ament is also a trained mediator. He can act as the neutral party in the process and is highly respected amongst other attorneys and mediators.

  • Mr. Ament can also help you through the process of collaborative divorce. This is a process similar to mediation, but is even more of an amicable and cooperative process.

You do not have to go through your divorce alone. We can assist you in determining if divorce mediation is right for you. Contact us online or call 847-991-6700 to schedule a consultation.
