Divorce is ranked at the top of the list of stressful events in one’s life. The process of going through extended litigation can be expensive and uncertain. The final decisions and orders are based on a Judge’s rulings who doesn’t know the dynamics of you or your family. Unfortunately in these settings a winner and loser is typically declared.
Family mediation provides a means to reduce that and all the parties to meet with a neutral third party. Using a mediator can often allow you to avoid the expense, time, and hostilities of court proceedings. It provides a less expensive and adversarial means to resolving your divorce
In private mediation, a mediator works with all parties to help them reach voluntary agreements that work for their particular situation. The goal is to provide the opportunity for you negotiate and resolve issues in a manner you control of your fate and to reach a palatable resolution to your personal family matter.
In Florida, the Court requires parties in most family law matters to attempt resolve their issues through an informal dispute resolution process like mediation.
