Miramar, FL Mediation Attorneys

Your Divorce Does Not Have To Be War. Seek Happiness. Our Miramar Mediation Attorneys Could Help You Find A More Peaceful Path To Your Happily Ever After! 

Many couples get stressed out as they consider whether or not to move forward with divorce because they believe it will be a toxic, high-conflict ordeal that will take many months to resolve and that will completely disrupt their lives in the process. However, this may not have to be your story! 

Mediation is a method for spouses to come to an agreement on the major issues in their divorce civilly and collaboratively. If it works, it has many benefits! Mediation can keep your divorce out of court, which means:

  • You and your spouse, rather than a judge who is unfamiliar with your family and your history, will have the most control over the divorce settlement agreement.
  • You could avoid the many expenses associated with divorce court, as mediation is much more cost-effective.
  • You can prioritize – instead of fighting over who gets what just to get the upper hand (or defend against a spouse insistent on doing so), you can focus on finding the real best solutions that help you both lay a strong foundation for your post-divorce futures. 
  • You can keep the peace – mediation does not mean you like each other or get along, and it does not mean that there will never be disagreements or conflict, but it can drastically reduce the amount of name-calling, threats, and emotional turmoil typical of traditional divorce. It can also help you keep things amicable for the sake of your kids and lead to more productive co-parenting!
  • You do not have to sign the agreement if it goes south and you are not happy. 

If you want to pursue meditation or learn more about the process, call our professional Miramar mediation attorneys at Divorce & Mediation Law Firm | Cabanas Law Firm today to request your free 15-minute case evaluation and discuss how we can help.

How Does Mediation Work In Florida?

You, your spouse, and your attorneys (if you choose to have them, which is highly recommended) will meet with a neutral mediator to open the lines of communication and directly discuss all of your settlement options. This person is a facilitator of compromise, who does not represent either party. Everything said during mediation is confidential! 

During mediation, you will address the various aspects of your divorce, including the division of assets and debts (who gets what and who will pay for what), alimony (spousal support), retirement earnings to be considered or divided, a parenting plan (if you have minor children, what the arrangements will be) and more. 

The goal of mediation is to find solutions that are agreeable to both parties. If the session(s) succeed, your mediated settlement agreement will be filed with your case, and then you can take your next steps to get the agreement approved and your divorce finalized. 

Do You Need Attorneys For Mediation?

You are not required by law to have an attorney representing you in mediation, and some people believe that they can work out their terms without attorneys present. It is important to understand that in this scenario, mediators are neutral third parties who cannot give legal advice, and they cannot look out specifically for your interests! Their job is to keep the peace and get an agreement on the table by whatever means possible.

Conversely, you are permitted to have an attorney present at mediation and consult with them at any time. An attorney can give you legal advice, and is looking out for you, not your spouse. This means that an attorney can advise you as to if you are making a bad deal or if you are getting taken advantage of. Sometimes, compromising can lead to regrets down the road, so having legal representation can give you more confidence that the outcome of your mediation will be a good one! 

Our certified Miramar mediation attorneys can serve as either a neutral third-party mediator, if you choose, or can represent your interests as your attorney. We have experience in both roles! 

Will Mediation Be A Good Solution To Your Situation?

Our Miramar mediation attorneys often encourage mediation for the majority of couples when it makes sense; the faster and more efficiently this chapter is closed, the faster you can turn the page on the next one and move forward with your life! If you have familiarity with your marital estate, it is important to know that the Court will require you to mediate before a trial of your case anyway.  However, we also know that it is not always possible to resolve divorce amicably with your spouse, especially if they…

  • have a history of abuse or domestic violence of any kind
  • refuse to give up essential information or disclose financial records
  • are someone you can no longer trust and have a history of dishonesty
  • refuse to be cooperative in the mediation process and insist on “their way or the highway” even with a neutral third party assisting

In those cases, it might be in your best interests to go to court and have a judge protect your interests.
