Divorce and Family Law Mediation in South Florida
Depending on where your case is pending and what issues are involved, it might be necessary to take a disputed matter to mediation before a family court judge will hear and decide it.
A skilled mediator can help the parties resolve their dispute by keeping the focus on the issues rather than the personal problems they might have between them. A mediator can also identify promising avenues of agreement or compromise, and build toward a negotiated agreement on the foundation of common interest.
Our role as your attorneys is to help you develop initial and fallback negotiation positions from a legally and factually sound platform. You’ll develop your own priorities and objectives for the mediation session based on what can reasonably be achieved.
While a favorable settlement through mediated negotiation is a good thing, you shouldn’t feel that you need to resolve the dispute through mediation. A mediator can’t force a settlement. We can help you tell the difference between reasonable and unreasonable proposals, and we won’t urge you to take less than what you deserve if your legal position supports a better result.
Experienced Legal Help With Your Florida Divorce Issues
Many people come to our law firm with all issues defined. We can assist in reviewing an existing agreement to ensure your interests are protected, or we can assist in compiling your wishes into a comprehensive settlement agreement, addressing issues such as:
- Property division and debt allocation
- Child custody
- Parenting Plans
- Alimony/spousal support
- Equitable distribution
- Child support
- Other important concerns
Your divorce settlement agreement can then be presented to the court and converted into your divorce decree. You can have confidence in the decisions made, rather than leaving the final judgement up to a judge who does not understand the uniqueness of your situation.
Negotiating Divorce Settlements
When a marriage starts to fall apart, it can be difficult to converse with one another, let alone come to agreement on terms as important as parental responsibility and business asset division. However, when both parties are willing to try to work together to negotiate an agreement, it can save everyone time and money.
Our South Florida divorce lawyers can help you effectively negotiate on complex divorce issues and work with you to create a fair property settlement agreement, parenting plan and other components of your divorce agreement. Even if all issues (equitable distribution, alimony, child support) cannot be decided through negotiation or divorce mediation, remaining concerns can be brought to court. Our attorneys remain dedicated to your interests and your goals, whether we represent you through a negotiated solution or we assert your rights in divorce litigation.
