In this article, we discuss dissipation and contributions. These are both terms reference assets that were gained using either marital, or nonmarital money. A contribution occurs when one of the spouses used their own non-marital assets to benefit the marriage, and claim a reimbursement for that amount from the marital estate. Dissipation occurs, when one of the spouses inappropriately expended marital assets for his or her own exclusive benefit. Our Illinois divorce mediators will assist you in coming to an agreement as to the division of the marital estate, including working out issues related to dissipation and contribution.
Illinois mediation attorney Kevin O'Flaherty explains the differences between collaborative divorce, cooperative divorce, and family mediation.
Other alternatives to traditional divorce that our Illinois family meddiation attorneys offer are Cooperative and Collaborative Divorce. Like divorce mediation, Collaborative Divorce and Cooperative Divorce allow for the parties to resolve issues relating to a divorce outside of court. This saves both parties time, money and stress. While family mediation includes a neutral mediator who works with each party and each party's attorney to facilitate a settlement, in a Collaborative Divorce or Cooperative Divorce the parties and their attorneys seek to reach a settlement without a neutral mediator. If the Collaborative Divorce or Cooperative Divorce process fails to result in settlement, the parties may bring in a family mediator in order to resolve any outstanding issues as an alternative to litigation.
