Parenting Time for Labor Day? Mediate.

Posted by Erin Birt | Aug 22, 2012 | 0 Comments

In Illinois, parents that have not been able to agree upon holiday parenting time, most likely need to attend mediation prior to seeking assistance from a court.  In DuPage County, Illinois, local court rules mandate that parents attend mediation with a court approved mediator prior to seeking assistance from its courts. Need Parenting Time for Labor Day? Mediate.

Mediation through The Law Firm of Erin N. Birt, P.C. is available based upon the parents schedule: mornings, evenings, weekends.  If the Labor Day parenting schedule has not been set, or needs to be modified, please contact us to set an appointment. We assist clients in coordinating scheduling with the other parent.

Why mediate? The benefits of DuPage County Divorce Mediation and Family Law Mediation include:

*Direct communication;

*The parties control the process;

*Mediation agreements are determined by the individuals, not third parties;

*Parties are more inclined to abide by an agreement that they have created;

*Mediation helps narrow the issues (even if an agreement is not reached);

*Mediation is cost and time efficient.
