Divorce Mediation in Florida
Mediation Requirements for your Divorce
If you and your spouse are unable to agree to certain conditions regarding the divorce, mediation is required to take place in most counties in Florida. The mediation procedure is usually done at the courthouse but may be done elsewhere as well. Only the mediator, the two spouses and their respective divorce attorneys are allowed to attend the mediation.
No judge or court reporter is present at mediation and although it is a requirement of the family law court for there to be mediation, it is completely confidential and the results of it will not be presented to a judge. The mediator is normally a person appointed by the court and trained and certified by the Florida Supreme Court as a family law mediator. Some are licensed attorneys, while others are not.
The purpose of the mediation is to bring about an agreement between the parties as to all points needing agreement in the divorce, whether it be child support, custody, alimony or property division. The point of the mediation is to give each person an opportunity to communicate with a mediator and both attorneys present so as to arrive at some agreement and thereby forego a trial. In this manner undue emotional turmoil, cost and expense can be avoided. This is definitely beneficial if children are involved and will allow each party to continue on with their life by putting all the disagreement behind them.
