How mediation actually works

Clients often ask how this process actually operates. While explaining how the mediation process should proceed and discussing all obligations and responsibilities, the attorney’s aim is to maintain a neutral position. All sides are encouraged to start by providing a clear picture of exactly where they stand.

Areas of disagreement can then be clarified, and the attorney will offer assistance throughout the negotiation process and suggest where a compromise might be possible. Creative and personalized solution finding to match specific circumstances can be undertaken.

Then a draft of a tentative agreement can be created. Attorneys for each side can examine this; if an agreement can be reached, all forms can then be submitted for court approval.

Mediation is one of many services provided by Granholm & Gynac, family and estate planning attorneys based in Joliet, Illinois.
