Weston, FL Mediation Attorneys

Getting divorced is never a part of the plan when you say “I do,” but sometimes it is a necessary step you need to take to create a better future. If you and your spouse have made the difficult decision to divorce, are on amicable terms, and would prefer to minimize conflict throughout the process, our Weston mediation attorneys are ready to help.

The social stigma that surrounds divorce is that it is always a lengthy and contentious battle. While this is true for some, many are able to resolve divorce matters peacefully through the process of mediation. Mediation is an alternative method of divorce that can help keep things civil and avoid any unnecessary drama. How your marriage ends has the potential to affect your life in many ways for years to come; if you are ready to close this chapter of life in a tranquil manner, call Divorce & Mediation Law Firm | Cabanas Law Firm with your spouse today to request a consultation on mediation.

What Is Mediation?

Mediation is a method that reduces the time, stress, and cost of settling divorce matters while also maintaining your privacy. It gives you and your spouse the opportunity to have the most control over the outcome of your divorce, rather than leaving it in the hands of a judge who does not know your family history or understand the relationship you have with your spouse.

While the ideal mediation situation is for you and your spouse to be on civil terms, mediation can still benefit you both even if you find yourselves at odds with one another. The goal of mediation is not necessarily to avoid conflict entirely – in a divorce, there is likely to be conflict! – but to help you work through your differences collaboratively, outside of court.

Do I Need A Mediation Attorney?

You can use one of our mediators as a neutral third party or have us represent your interests during mediation. While there are non-attorney mediators who are certified to handle the mediation process for you, having an attorney mediate the terms of your divorce is highly advisable. If you choose us to represent your interests, our Weston mediation attorneys will be looking out for you. You can proceed with just a non-attorney mediator, but they are required to remain neutral, and will not be able to tell you if you are agreeing to a bad deal. We can ensure that you are not giving up valuable rights or assets in a divorce settlement. We have a thorough understanding of Florida’s family laws and have handled countless mediations. If you choose us to serve as a neutral third party, we can foster an environment for you and your spouse to have productive conversations that will ultimately lead to mutually agreeable solutions. If you and your spouse have questions or concerns during the process, we can provide you both with knowledgeable legal guidance. At Divorce & Mediation Law Firm | Cabanas Law Firm, we take the time to get to know you and your spouse so that regardless of our role, we can achieve an outcome that will meet your needs and goals while laying a strong foundation for your future.

Who Mediation Is Not For

We often encourage you to settle where it makes sense to, because the faster and more efficiently this chapter is closed, the faster you can start experiencing the happy life waiting for you. However, we also know that it is not always possible to resolve divorce amicably with your spouse, especially if they…

  • have a history of domestic violence
  • refuse to give up essential information
  • are someone you can no longer trust
  • have ulterior motives

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.
