Each court is different so it takes special insight to determine what a particular court is looking for as it pertains to custody or the distribution of assets. Stacey Graus is someone who understand all aspects of domestic relations matters.

Mr. Graus has taken numerous cases to trial and has obtained favorable custody verdicts for many of his clients. He has often found that a negotiated resolution is the best option for his clients. A negotiated resolution allows his clients to have more control over the arrangement and ultimately their life. It takes the decision-making out of the hands of a third party who may be telling them when they are going to have their child and how they are going to raise them. In addition, it also removes the decision-making authority of a third party who can tell them what assets they get to keep and what debts they have to pay. Thus, mediation becomes an effective tool to resolve complicated domestic matters. As stated, I have mediated over hundreds of cases with a very high success rate at mediation
