Can you mediate a case where there are major power imbalances between the couple?

The job of a good mediator is to balance out the parties and make sure that both parties have an opportunity to be heard. If this is successful then the likelihood of achieving a positive result in mediation is more likely. Regarding domestic violence issues, mediation is also still possible. Depending on the specifics of a case, shuttle mediation may be appropriate so as to avoid interaction between the parties. Depending on the case existing court orders may need to be modified to allow for mediation to occur if there’s a history of domestic violence.

Matthew R. Majernik is a highly skilled mediator and family lawyer in Bloomington, Illinois with a focus on family law and estate planning. His experience also includes the areas of dissolution of marriage, parentage actions, custody, child support, and order of protection.
