Mediating Family Law Issues in Sunny Isles Beach, FL.

It is a myth that divorce, child support, and other family law disputes must be litigated and decided in court. In fact, many families settle disputes amicably through mediation, even when they are far apart on issues in the beginning.

You can go through mediation with or without an attorney. As certified mediators, our attorneys can facilitate the process or represent you during mediation. In either case, we can help you create mutually beneficial agreements regarding divorce, post-divorce modifications, and child support.

Mediation has numerous advantages over litigation. For instance, it is generally faster, more affordable, and less emotional than going to trial. Additionally, you have control over mediation proceedings and do not have to sign an agreement that does not meet your needs. The same is not true during litigation, where the judge’s ruling is legally binding.

If you are interested in mediation, contact our firm today. Then we can discuss the process of mediation with and without personal counsel.

What Are the Advantages of Mediation?

Clients often prefer mediation over litigation due to the advantages. For instance, mediation is:

  • Non-binding
  • Cost-effective
  • Less time-consuming
  • Non-adversarial

Creating A Divorce Settlement Through Mediation In Sunny Isles Beach, Fl.

You cannot dissolve a marriage before settling numerous issues, including the division of property and parental time-sharing. Fortunately, each of these matters can be solved through mediation. The mediator will begin by gathering information and reviewing the facts of the case. Then both parties will outline their interests and needs regarding the divorce settlement.

Finally, the mediator will use non-adversarial negotiation strategies to help the parties find a solution on all matters. Once the parties reach an agreement, the mediator can draft a settlement for them to sign. Then the mediator can submit it to the court for final approval.

While this is an overview of the process, a mediation attorney can go into greater detail during the consultation. Reach out to our firm to learn more about mediation and how it can help you settle your divorce.

Child Support Mediation In Sunny Isles Beach, Fl

Florida family courts use guidelines when determining child support. However, judges can deviate from the guidelines in certain situations. For instance, if a child has special needs or one or both parents have a high income, the judge will adjust the support payments to reflect the situation. However, those paying and receiving child support are often unhappy with the court’s decision.

You can take matters into your own hands by reaching a child support agreement through mediation. To obtain court approval, such an agreement must be fair, reasonable, and in the child’s best interests. However, you still have the freedom to negotiate for something that fits your unique situation, even if your case does not involve special circumstances. You want what is best for your child while protecting your interests, so reach out to our firm to discuss the matter with a child support mediation attorney.

Post-divorce Mediation In Sunny Isles Beach, Fl

If your circumstances have changed since your divorce, your existing settlement might not meet your needs. If that is the case, you can go through mediation to reach a new agreement. The mediator can help you negotiate to modify alimony, child support, time-sharing, and other matters related to your divorce. If you wait too long to modify the existing agreement, you risk getting out of compliance, which leads to strict penalties. Thus, contact our firm if you have experienced a significant change in circumstances requiring modification.

A mediation attorney will review your case to see if it meets the requirements for a modification. If so, you can set up mediation to begin working out a new agreement.

What If You Agree On Some But Not All Issues During Mediation?

If you have several matters to mediate, you might reach an agreement on some but not all. For example, you might agree on time-sharing and child support but are at an impasse regarding property division. In this instance, the mediator can create child support and time-sharing agreements to submit to the court for approval. Then your attorney can present your case in court, so the judge can determine how to divide the property.
