Mediation is required by Florida divorce law in all contested cases.
Likewise, mediation process is often the best chance for the parties to have a say in how their case is resolved. So, a Certified Mediator facilitates discussion between the two parties and their attorneys to resolve issues and find common ground.
A judge will decide the ultimate outcome when parties cannot resolve all issues.
Public Or Private Divorce Cases
There are actually two different ways to mediate a divorce case: publicly, through the county, or privately.
One major consideration is that during mediation, the parties can help craft a resolution. It may be more creative and more tailored to their unique needs than a judge could after a contested trial or hearing.
