Divorce Mediation can help Couples Divorcing in Florida

On behalf of The Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin posted in Divorce on Wednesday, October 7, 2015.

Mediation can be useful in a number of legal situations, including in divorce. In Florida, many couples choose mediation over the more traditional route of a litigate divorce. Divorce issues can be resolved in a less contentious and costly manner through divorce mediation. Furthermore, this process can provide more involvement for the parties as they work with a mediator, rather than relying on a judge, to reach agreements concerning important divorce-related issues.

The divorce mediation process can be beneficial in a number of ways. Overall, divorce mediation can help the couple reach outcomes more amicably than might otherwise be possible through litigation. Also. the mediation process may be faster, more cost efficient and a more peaceful process because of its collaborative problem-solving nature rather than adversarial nature. Moreover, a more peaceful process can be a positive outcome for the divorcing couple and any children the couple may have.

Divorce mediation may allow the couple to have more control over the process and the agreements that are reached that are best for them and their family. While divorcing couples are always encouraged to reach agreements concerning as many divorce-related issues as possible, the mediation process can help facilitate this to the fullest extent possible. There are a number of potentially emotional and difficult issues that must be resolved during divorce including the property division, alimony and child custody and child support.

At the Law Offices of Cindy D. Sackrin, we know that divorce often involves sensitive and emotionally-charged. Thus, mediation can be a useful process to help minimize the bad feelings sometimes associated with divorce. Regardless of the circumstances, mediation seeks to help families resolve their own legal issues during divorce.
