10 Reasons Why You Need a Divorce Lawyer in Illinois: Part 3

illinois divorce mediation attorneyReason three: Mediation and settlements are usually the best ways to resolve a divorce in Illinois. But not always!

Endless negotiations do not leading anywhere. Sometimes so much time is spent in negotiating and trying to strike a deal with a party or lawyer who is impossible that it is simply more cost-effective to have a trial with a judge's decision than to endlessly negotiate a case that has no hope of settlement.

A trial can be finished many times in one day, as opposed to negotiations that never seem to come to an end.

A Husband or Wife Who Has Always Called the Shots

Likewise, there are some situations that cannot be settled by mediation. A typical situation is where one spouse has given orders throughout the marriage and the other spouse followed them without complaint. In mediation, the spouse who has been reluctant to speak up frequently still may be reluctant or afraid to speak up and the other spouse will crush them.

A spouse who thrills at endless details of negotiation but never addresses the larger points. Sometimes a spouse will so concentrate on the many details of divorce that they miss the big picture.

There are so many arguments back-and-forth over what are in reality emotional issues that the spouses never seem to grasp the really important issues at hand such as the custody of the children, how they are being brought up, who is responsible for their care, who makes decisions regarding their future.
