Fixing a broken marriage is neither the goal nor the focus of mediation. If you think that the marriage might be saved and are looking for someone to sit down with you and your spouse to help you work on your marriage, mediation is premature! Please consult with a marriage counselor, family therapist or other mental health professional. Mediation in the context of divorce occurs after the decision has been made to actually get a divorce, and the couple needs help resolving certain issues before the divorce can be made final. Referrals are available from this office to reputable mental health professionals in Oak Park who are available for family and marriage counseling.
