Divorce Mediation Tips

Q. How will a mediator help me?

A Divorce Mediator is a neutral third party that is professionally trained to help couples come to an agreeable solution for the dissolution of marriage and the distribution of assets thereafter. A few tasks undertaken by a mediator are –

Help you avoid court altogether, saving you thousands of dollars on a court trial.
Facilitating uninterrupted communication between you and your soon-to-be ex-spouse.
Providing legal information relevant to your case.
Conducting fair discussions on spousal and/or child support.
Identifying agreeable alternatives to solving issues.
Write professionally-drafted legally enforceable settlement agreements.

Q. Do I have to be worried about the dissemination of my personal information?

Everything discussed in a divorce mediation session is 100% confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone else except the two parties involved.

Q. How do the legal court documents get filed?

We take care of all the legal paperwork starting with the dissolution of marriage action to preparing and filing all the necessary documents thereafter.

Q. How long does the process of mediation last?

Since there is no restriction of following the court’s calendar, the time taken to resolve the case depends entirely on the two parties involved. The process can be completed as quickly as possible.

Q. Will the agreement be binding?

The agreement prepared at the end of the mediation process is binding. Once the agreement is signed by both parties, it will be enforceable.

Q. What if we are not able to agree on all the issues?

The possibilities of not reaching a resolution are few and far between. Couples are able to resolve most of their issues during the mediation sessions. However, in the case of unresolved issues, both parties can decide to litigate the remaining issues or take more time to think about them and then come back to mediation if required.

Q. What is the right time to go for divorce mediation?

As soon as you decide to get your marriage dissolved, consult a divorce mediator in Florida to get a quick solution for the distribution of assets & debts, as well as child custody, instead of spending thousands of dollars on a court trial.

Q. Who will pay for the divorce mediation sessions?

Ideally, both parties should split the cost of the mediation sessions equally. However, often one party ends up paying most or all of the cost depending upon the negotiated settlement.

Q. Can I have a family member sit-in for the divorce mediation sessions?

Legally, neither party has any right to bring a family member for any mediation session throughout the process. In case you want to bring someone along, you need to seek permission from your spouse beforehand. However, if the mediator feels that the family member is hindering the process, they can be asked to leave.
