Mediation Weston, FL

Cabanas Law Firm helps people settle matters outside of court through mediation.

Mediation for Family Law Matters

Are you worried about the very idea of engaging in a heated court battle to settle family law matters? You know that litigation can be expensive, time-consuming, and adversarial. Also, you might not be happy with the outcome but will not have recourse since it is legally binding. Fortunately, you can negotiate an agreement outside of court through mediation. Because it is not legally binding, you are not forced to enter into an undesirable agreement. However, if you reach a settlement, the mediator can submit it to court for approval. If the judge signs off on it, it will become legally binding.

As certified mediators, the attorneys at our firm can serve as neutral third parties during mediation. If you prefer, you can also retain our services as personal counsel to represent your interests while negotiating a settlement. Contact us today to discuss your needs. Then we can go over your options for settling your divorce, determining child custody, or modifying court-approved orders.

Mediation Process

The mediation process normally includes:

  • Orientation
  • Review of the facts
  • Stating wants and needs
  • Identifying areas of agreement
  • Identifying areas of disagreement
  • Reviewing options for settlement

Advantages Of Mediation In Weston, Fl

Mediation offers several advantages over litigation. First, you can reduce your costs when engaging in mediation. Also, mediation often allows people to settle matters faster than in court. Moreover, mediation is less formal and more productive, meaning you are less likely to experience the stress associated with litigation.

Finally, mediation is private and non-adversarial, allowing you to iron out differences away from the public eye. In doing so, you can set aside your differences and improve your relationship with the other party. As a result, you can become more effective co-parents through mediation.

These are some of the numerous advantages of mediation. Learn more by consulting with a mediation attorney at our firm.

Matters To Settle Through Mediation

Our mediation attorneys can help you resolve matters related to divorce, post-divorce orders, and child support. While these matters are different, the mediation process is generally the same. The mediator will go over the facts, identify areas of agreement and disagreement, and discuss your wants, needs, and goals. Then the mediator can use negotiation strategies to help you reach an agreement.

You can choose to mediate these issues with or without a personal attorney present. If you go to mediation without a personal attorney, the mediator cannot offer legal advice. On the other hand, a personal attorney will look out for your interests during mediation and raise issues you might feel uncomfortable bringing up on your own.

Many people have success going through mediation with and without personal attorneys present. Learn more about both options by contacting our firm. Our mediation attorneys can serve as your representative or a third-party mediator, so feel free to discuss both options during the consultation.

What If You Do Not Reach An Agreement?

If you are not successful during mediation, you will need to go to court to litigate the matter. Then the judge will determine the settlement. However, you will only need to litigate the matters not decided during mediation. For instance, assume you agree on child support. Then the mediator submits the agreement to the court, and the judge signs off on it, making it a legally enforceable order. However, you cannot decide how to divide the property. In this instance, the judge will render a decision regarding your property, but not child support.

Mediating Post-divorce Modifications In Weston, Fl

If you fail to comply with a court-approved order, you can be held in contempt of court, leading to severe consequences. However, you might not be able to uphold the order based on a significant change of circumstances. A mediation attorney can help you reach an agreement to modify orders for child support, alimony, and other matters. Reach out to our firm today to determine if your change in circumstances requires a modification. If so, we can discuss mediation and other strategies.
