Kris Thelen is a member of the Wisconsin Association of Mediators and are available to assist you if you are considering mediation.
Wisconsin family courts require mediation if there is disagreement over child custody and visitation. A judge may order mediation in other cases when issues are in dispute, but this is done on a case-by-case basis. In divorce mediation, the couple works with a neutral mediator to arrive at an agreement on issues in conflict.
Mediation is not a good option if one of the spouses is unwilling to participate or if there has been abuse in the relationship.
