Mediation is required when children are involved in a divorce and as well as in custody cases. Typically, I am appointed as the mediator by the court at the recommendation of the attorneys involved. You are able to request me as a mediator as well. I charge a flat fee for mediation and set the mediation to happen across two meetings.
Another option that most people do not realize is that the parties may choose to mediate all issues involved in the divorce or custody case. This would include property, child support, maintenance, and parenting time. If parties were to choose this method of mediation, we would work out the entirety of the matter and then the parties may have an attorney draw up the paperwork or choose to complete the pro se paperwork from the courthouse. This is a much less expensive way of handling a matter, but both parties have to go into the mediation with an open mind and a willingness to cooperate.
Guardian ad Litem
A Guardian ad Litem (GAL) may be needed in many different circumstances. A GAL is typically need in high conflict custody/divorce cases, DCFS cases, guardianship cases, and disabled adult guardianship cases. The GAL functions slightly differently in each instance. But, overall, the GAL acts as the eyes and ears of the court and is looking at the best interest of the minor child/disabled adult to which the GAL has been appointed to represent.
From custody disputes to divorce proceedings, I will represent you in all facets of family law. Without question, some of the most emotionally-charged issues in all of law fall under the domain of family law. Are you having legal issues regarding marriage, adoption, divorce, or are you seeking custody of children? Are you battling with DCFS? Have you been served with an Order of Protection? I can help you through these types of issues.
All too often DCFS is involved when a couple is going through a divorce or separation. I have experience dealing with this state agency and am able to assist you through the process of regaining custody and/or appealing a DCFS finding.
Real Estate matters
Are you buying or selling a home? Are you interested in leasing? Are you interested in purchasing undeveloped land? I will make sure you have the right contract for your particular situation. Let me help you protect this substantial financial investment.
Do you have a lease or employment contract or some other legal document that you don't fully understand? It's important you know exactly what you are signing and this is especially true in relation to legal documents. Contact me. I will review the document and help you understand exactly what you are signing.
Do you fully understand what will happen to your assets in the event of your death? It is important to think about these issues in advance so you are able to distribute your assets the way you desire. The process is much easier for your loved ones when you have planned for the distribution of your estate.
You should also consider what would happen in the event that you are in a catastrophic accident. What if you are on life support? Does your family know what you want in a situation like this? Is there someone authorized to make healthcare decisions for you? Executing a Power of Attorney is all it takes to ease the stresses of this type of situation and I can help you with that.
