Attorney for Divorce Mediation in Miami
What is a Mediation?
Divorce Mediation Attorney in Miami
Do you and your spouse agree that it is time to end your marriage, but you are struggling to work out the terms of the divorce? You might think that litigation is your only option, but many couples amicably resolve their issues through mediation. This non-adversarial conflict resolution method allows couples to settle various issues, such as child custody, alimony, and the division of assets without battling in court. It is also private, so you will not have to worry about your personal life becoming a matter of public record.
Our certified divorce mediation attorneys in South Florida act as neutral third parties while guiding people toward resolutions. If you want to avoid litigation, contact our firm to consult with a divorce mediation attorney.
What Can You Settle During Mediation?
You can settle all matters related to the dissolution of your marriage during mediation, including:
- Child custody
- Child support
- Division of assets
- Validity of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
As a neutral third party, your divorce mediation attorney will help you reach a fair and equitable settlement on all issues. Then, the attorney can submit the plan to the judge for approval.

What Occurs During Divorce Mediation?
You have two options when undergoing divorce mediation. First, you and your estranged spouse can hire attorneys to represent you during mediation. The attorneys will protect each side’s interests while the mediator negotiates for a resolution. Second, you can both attend mediation without attorneys present. The mediator will still serve as a neutral third party to help you agree to the terms of the dissolution of your marriage.
Regardless of the option you choose, the mediator will go through the facts of the case and determine the wants and needs of both parties. Additionally, the mediator will discuss the areas that the parties already agree on and where the disagreements lie. Then, the certified mediator will evaluate the situation and explore options to settle the case.
Because mediation is voluntary and non-binding, you do not have to sign an agreement if you do not wish to do so. However, if you are pleased with an agreement, you can sign it and submit it to the court for approval.
Benefits Of Divorce Mediation
Mediation has many benefits over litigation. First, it tends to be much faster than litigation and generally costs less money. It also allows for flexibility that you will not get in court. The mediator can help you create an agreement that makes sense of your situation, even if it deviates from the standard agreements ordered in court.
Additionally, mediation proceedings are private. Because of this, you can protect your family from emotionally charged proceedings.
Finally, mediation facilitates better communication between divorcing spouses. This can lay the groundwork for successfully co-parenting.

Choose Our Mediation Services for Your Divorce in Miami
Divorce is never pleasant. We’ve all heard the phrases, “a messy divorce” or “an acrimonious divorce”. Often it comes after a fraught period of angry exchanges as the relationship breaks down, dreams are shattered, and the stability of the marriage is swept away on a tide of bitterness and recrimination.
Isn’t that bad enough, without turning the legal process into a battle too? At Divorce & Mediation Law Firm, we believe in trying to resolve the matter amicably and as peacefully as the circumstances will allow. When you use mediation for your divorce in Miami, you are spared the stress typically associated with an aggressive legal battle.
The impact of a difficult divorce can be even worse when there are children involved. They may already have suffered as their parents’ relationship fell apart, so why put them through further stress and tension? When you have decided, whether mutually or alone, to end your marriage, there is an opportunity to stop arguing and begin reestablishing stability. By using a divorce mediation attorney who relies on negotiation and common decency rather than overt hostility, you will improve the situation for you and the whole family.

Absolutely not. Our divorce attorneys are hard-headed but not hard-hearted. We will press your claims as hard as any other lawyer but in a more civilized and respectful way. We aim to get the job done to our client’s benefit by fair means. However, if the other party’s representatives use different tactics, we will respond in kind. Our motto is “Settle where we can, fight when we must”, and our priority is always to look after your interests. Remember, the nastier and more protracted the process, the higher the bills and divorce is bad enough without handing over all your money in legal expenses.
Can Divorce Mediation in Miami Save My Business Interests?
Losing a business is a common fear among people heading for divorce if they are linked to their soon-to-be-ex through business because money – or the potential loss of it – can aggravate the situation. All the work you have put in over the years, all the contributions you’ve made in terms of ideas and knowhow, you’re not going to surrender those without a fight.
Our job is to fight your corner and we will do so with every skill and resource we possess. If resolution can be achieved without bitterness, so much the better.Our mediation for divorce in Miami is designed to get results without adding to the stress already caused by this kind of breakup.

Will My Divorce Mediation Attorney Keep Me Up to Date with Developments?
Our divorce mediation attorneys in Miami will keep you informed as much as you want. Some clients like to just hand the process over to us and let us get on with it. Others, particularly when there are major business and financial matters at stake, like to be kept fully informed on the progress. Our approach to client service is to make sure you’re comfortable with how much or how little information you receive. Each client is an individual with their own needs and wishes. We never forget who you are and that you’re putting your trust in us. Read Less
Mediation Between Adversaries
Ending a marriage incites multiple emotions, including anger. If you and your spouse currently have an adversarial relationship, you might think you cannot benefit from mediation. However, certified mediators have numerous conflict resolution strategies to help bring opposing spouses together to create an agreement. In fact, these strategies can help you get on better terms when ending your marriage. Thus, contact a certified divorce mediation attorney today to learn more.
What If You Fail To Agree On All Issues?
While many divorcing couples settle every issue in mediation, that is not always the case. Fortunately, you can enter into an agreement for all settled issues before litigating the remaining matters in court. This can speed up litigation and take some of the stress off your shoulders during the proceedings. If you would like to learn more, reach out to a divorce mediation attorney today.
