Helping You Achieve a Civil Conclusion to Your Marriage in Delray Beach
Mediation is an effective tool utilized to resolve marital and family law issues before the case reaches trial. The mediation process is preferred to trial as it reduces legal expenses and allows the parties to make decisions related to their case in lieu of the Judge deciding the case for them. The agreements that are formed through the mediation process are detailed and more thorough than those that can be obtained through trial.
The Florida Divorce Mediation Process
Mediation is usually a more amicable and peaceful way of resolving divorce in comparison to divorce litigation, which can often be combative. Spouses can add any terms of agreement they reasonably see fit, as long as there are no violations of any Florida laws, with the assistance of a mediator. Most mediation sessions will consist of an introduction that explains the processes and what role the mediator will play. Following the introduction, each party will be presented with the opportunity to give their opening remarks. These remarks will usually bring up the issues at hand, such as custody or visitation disputes. Mediation will end in one of these three ways: 1) both parties reach an agreement for all or some issues 2) the mediator will declare an impasse 3) with the permission of both parties, the mediator will adjourn and continue another day.
What Mediation Covers
Mediation is informal and confidential. Mediators do not make any decisions on your behalf and cannot “force” you to a settlement. Rather, the mediator will utilize their skills to encourage and facilitate the negotiation process and to assist the parties in reaching an agreement.
Just a few of the aspects that this agreement will cover include:
