In the State of Illinois, mediation is mandatory for people facing contested parenting issues such as custody, decision-making, parenting time and visitation. Because of this mandate, Amy Sholar handles a number of court appointed and voluntary mediation. The goal of mediation is to amicably reach a settlement that is in the best interest of families and children.
