Is mediation right for my divorce?

Many people recently are thinking mediation when they begin to think about getting divorced. I find this exciting; it means more and more people are thinking about moving on from their marriage without the destruction and drama of litigation. However, mediation is for a specific purpose and does not meet every divorcing couple's needs. If you're thinking about amicably ending your marriage the first thing to ask yourself is: Do my partner and I both agree to end our marriage amicably? If the answer is yes, then you have a new set of questions to ask:

What is an uncontested divorce?

There are many ways to get divorced in Florida. To get divorced you need a marital settlement agreement (MSA) and a parenting plan or you need a final judgment (an Order from a judge which rules on all of the various aspects of a divorce). An MSA and parenting plan (if there are minor children) are the two documents that will need to be drafted and signed by the parties if they want agree to the terms of their divorce rather than making a Judge decide.

Mediation in Family Law Cases Part I

Mediation is required in most family law cases which involve children in Florida, including divorces. It is a process where the parties come together with the help of their attorneys (if they have attorneys) and a neutral 3rd person called a mediator. the purpose is to attempt to work out an agreement as to all or some of the issues. In most family cases mediation will come about 1/2 way through a case. As an attorney, I prefer to mediate earlier in cases, because, if parties are inclined to settle, settling early can decrease total attorney's fees, animosity between the parties and chaos in the family. It also provides valuable information on the case for both sides.
