Advantages of Mediation

Mediation does not depend on you and your spouse already agreeing on how to settle your divorce, but it does require that you are both willing to engage in respectful and constructive communication and can work together to settle the case outside of court.

  • Some of the benefits of mediation include the following:
  • More control over outcome
  • Less costly
  • Private
  • Flexible
  • More collaborative
  • Less conflict
  • Faster resolution

Mediation can be especially beneficial for divorcing parents, since they commonly learn new skills of communication and establish frameworks for discussion while avoiding arguments in the negotiation process. This can make the transition amicable, as both parents understand ways of communicating effectively in regards to their children.

Understanding Divorce Mediation

The divorce courts in Jacksonville and throughout the state require couples to attend mediation before the judge will hear their case, unless they come to court with a settlement agreement already worked out. Mediation as an alternative dispute resolution approach for settling a divorce is different from the traditional image.

Instead of having your own legal representation and entering the courtroom for a heated and often drawn-out battle over issues, you and your spouse come to the negotiating table with the purpose of reaching a mutually beneficial set of agreements on the issues involved in the divorce.

Retain a Seasoned Jacksonville Mediation Lawyer

It is important to understand that the divorce mediator is present as an entirely neutral third party. The purpose of the mediator is to facilitate discussions between you and your spouse and to help keep the environment amicable. While he or she may help to clarify legal issues, the mediator may not advise or advocate for either spouse.

The mediator also cannot represent you in court at your final divorce hearing. Mediation is not the ideal solution for every couple, but when it is the best approach it can often make the divorce faster, more affordable, and far less stressful for everyone involved. I can provide the skilled mediation counsel so you and your spouse can move forward amicably through this process.
