Attorney for Divorce Mediation in Broward and Miami-Dade County

Cabanas Law Firm uses non-adversarial conflict resolution techniques to help couples agree on the terms of the divorce.

What is a Mediation?

Divorce Mediation

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 mediators 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:

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 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.

If you are interested in the process, contact our firm to set up a consultation with a divorce mediation attorney. Our certified mediators can serve as neutral third parties or represent you during mediation.

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.
