Mediation Supportive Counsel You Can Rely On

Florida Mediation Attorneys

Don’t Drag Your Divorce Out – Call Our Mediation Attorneys

Simply put, mediation occurs when both parties come together with a neutral third-party and attempt to come to terms. While the mediator is generally an attorney, advocating for either party is not allowed. Because of this neutrality, certified mediators have proven effective at negotiating the conflicts that typically involve family law disputes. Our attorneys are effective both inside and outside of the courtroom.

Florida statute guides the mediator’s actions to ensure appropriate conduct. In cases of family law, the mediator is required to:

  • Remain neutral.
  • Restrain from forcing any agreement.
  • To conduct mediation with primacy on the mutual good of both parties.

The mediator is required to keep the negotiation confidential. By listening to the desire of both parties, the mediator will attempt to construct a suitable plan. Often, this requires a give and take process between parties. Successful mediation likely involves a series of concessions from both sides.

Skillful settlement negotiation can sometimes lead to satisfactory solutions without ever going through the arduous process of full litigation. We will work closely with mediators to both represent your legal goals and reach any suitable agreement. Through our extensive background, we are prepared to help you capitalize on the opportunity mediation provides.

Should your mediation conclude with an agreement, a small number of additional steps exist before finalizing the judgement. All parties will sign appropriate documentation for court submission. A Florida court will review said documentation to ensure statute requirements have been met. Only then, will a judge approve of the negotiated terms and proceed with final judgement.

Our Florida divorce mediation lawyers understand the importance of effective negotiation and mediation. Utilizing our decades of experience, our highly trained mediation attorneys can negotiate terms on your behalf. We know what it takes to reach suitable agreements with malleable opposition. Having defended clients’ interests in mediation throughout the state, The Virga Law Firm stands ready to defend your litigation goals.
