Facilitating Mediation For Family Law Disputes

Many estranged couples resist engaging in divorce proceedings due to the financial and emotional cost associated with litigation's adversarial process. However, the courtroom is not the only venue where conflict resolution occurs.

Conducted outside Wisconsin family courts, mediation is this form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that relies on compromise to establish the terms of an agreement. When both parties work together to settle issues, there is a higher rate of compliance with mediated terms than those granted by family court judges in litigation.

While there are many other benefits associated with mediation, few Wisconsin lawyers are trained to assist in this process. At Thelen & Associates LLC, our principal attorney, Kris Thelen, is a member of the Wisconsin Association of Mediators and is a certified practitioner mediator. She has facilitated mediations for many Waukesha County clients seeking to avoid the prolonged conflict that often accompanies litigation.

Employing Mediation To Resolve A Variety Of Conflicts

In addition to divorce mediation, this form of ADR can be used to encourage positive solutions for a range of family law issues, including:

Should both parties choose to pursue mediation, the information shared in sessions and the terms of the agreement remain private. Absent a judge's oversight and the formalities of litigation, the parties proceed at their own pace, streamlining the procedure.
