How Divorce Mediation Works In Wisconsin
Divorce is often a sensitive and highly emotional matter. Taking your case to trial can be even more stressful.
Mediation could be an option to reduce that stress. It is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that helps spouses avoid taking their divorce to court in a long and expensive battle. Instead, it allows spouses to negotiate fair resolutions with the help of a mediator.

The Changes In Family Mediation
Mediation has divorcing spouses attend sessions with a certified mediator. The mediator serves as a neutral party who facilitates the compromises and discussions between the spouses on all matters in their divorce, including:
- Deciding who has custody of children
- Dividing marital property and assets
- Determining spousal maintenance
- Determining child support obligations
This process remains the same. And mediation is still an effective, private and less-expensive route for divorce over litigation. However, Wisconsin laws changed on July 1, 2017, regarding the role of the mediator. The new law allows attorneys like the team at D'Angelo & Grabow to:
- Serve as the neutral mediator
- Create settlement documents
- Finalize divorces
