Divorce Mediation: How Does It Work? Orlando Attorney Explains

Back To Divorce and Family Law Video Help Page

Back To Divorce and Family Law Video Help Page

As mentioned in this video, divorce mediation is your opportunity to work out the details of your separation without having a judge make the decisions for you. This can be quite beneficial because you never know exactly how a judge is going to rule. And as an Orlando family law attorney, I can tell you that most divorcing couples in Florida agree – 95% of them resolve their case in divorce mediation instead of heading to trial.

So how does the mediation process actually work in practice? What do you do? How long does it take? Who is involved?

Here is the breakdown on the divorce mediation process.

Who is involved? Your mediation will involve you and your spouse, both of your lawyers, and a court-appointed mediator. Together, you’ll work to come to a compromise on all issues pertaining to your divorce.

How long does divorce mediation take? There is a fairly wide range, depending on the complexity of your situation. In simpler cases, mediation can take as little as two and ten hours. Some couples are able complete mediation in a single session, but most will require at least two or more. In some cases, neutral third party professionals become involved such as financial advisors or accountants. When financial issues are extensive, several children are involved or a couple must work through a tough issue, divorce mediation may take several sessions over a course of a few months. A typical mediation session generally last around two hours.

What is the goal? The ultimate goal of this process is to complete a Marital Settlement Agreement (MSA) that will detail how your interactions with each other work after the divorce is complete.

Will the MSA bring you PEACE? This is the goal of each Orlando family law attorney at our firm when going into divorce mediation with our clients. By the end, you need to be comfortable with your decisions on Parenting, Equitable Distribution, Alimony, Child Support, and Everything Else (e.g. PEACE).

Divorce mediation is not only typically less expensive than having a court trial; it is considerably faster and (this really does bear repeating) it keeps the decision-making in the hands of you and your spouse. Go to trial, and you never really know how the judge is going to rule.

Even if you think you have a clear cut, uncontested divorce case and you and your spouse are on the same page on every matter, divorce cases always have surprises. Your best bet is to try your utmost to make it work in divorce mediation first.
