Divorce is ranked at the top of the list of stressful events in one’s life. Family mediation provides a means to reduce that and all the parties to meet with a mediator in an effort to avoid the expense, time, and hostilities of court proceedings. In Florida, the Court requires parties in most family law matters to attempt resolve their issues through an informal dispute resolution process like mediation. In private mediation, a neutral mediator works with all parties to help them reach voluntary agreements that work for their particular situation.

In a court setting, the decisions and orders are based on a judge’s rulings and experience a winner and loser is typically declared.
