Mediation & Collaborative Divorce

Mediation: What You Need To Know

With more than 100 years of combined experience, the attorneys at Schmidlkofer, Toth, Loeb & Drosen, LLC, have helped countless clients throughout southeastern Wisconsin. Family law cases don’t always have to end up in court. If mediation is possible, we can help. Our firm aims to find solutions that make sense for you and your specific situation. We are communicative, honest and professional.

What Are The Benefits Of Mediation?

While you benefit from all of our knowledgeable team members, Chris Drosen is board certified in mediation. This distinction makes him more than qualified to handle complex family matters. We know that unresolved legal issues can cause significant stress on you and your loved ones. That is why we take a more open-minded approach. Attorney Drosen can act as a neutral third party and help you discuss the issues that need to be resolved. While it involves compromise, it is often faster than going in front of a judge.

Besides being timely, mediation can also be more cost-effective. Going to court also means you are giving up some control. While a judge can listen to our concerns, there is no guarantee that things will turn out our way. In mediation, we can all work together to reach a common ground. As a mediator, attorney Drosen will be straightforward. Whether it is answers to your questions or potential options, he can provide you with the legal guidance you deserve. From divorce to child custody, our firm can handle it all.

We take the time necessary to fully explain the law and process, as well as your options and likelihood of success so that you always know what to expect. We understand the importance of getting timely answers to your questions, and we work hard to be available and accessible when you need to talk.

Understanding The Process

The collaborative divorce process evolved as more people sought to settle divorce differences without the time, expense and emotional bitterness often associated with the traditional divorce process. In the collaborative process, both parties retain counsel, but the role of the lawyers is to help the parties identify ways to resolve their differences without the involvement of the judge or the court.

In the collaborative process, the parties frequently bring in outside experts, such as financial planners and family counselors, to determine the most effective solutions to issues such as custody, visitation and support. If the parties come to an agreement on all issues, a binding order is entered by the court. If the parties cannot resolve differences collaboratively and must seek the intervention of the courts, the parties must hire new counsel to represent them in any further legal proceedings.

We will handle all matters related to your collaborative divorce proceeding, and we will help you identify all potential avenues to settle your disagreements without going to court. We have the ability to protect your interests without making the process unworkable. We can also draft the marital settlement agreement, should you settle all differences through the collaborative process.
