When trying to get through a divorce in a timely and cost effective way, mediation is a great solution. In the state of Florida mediation is an extremely effective tool that addresses all types of issues that arise during a divorce.

Allyson Hughes, our Tampa mediation attorney, knows divorce mediation is about you and your spouse deciding on what is best for you and most importantly your children. If you are unable to agree on your issues, you will find yourself involved with Florida divorce mediation. In mediation you can expect you and your spouse to meet with a neutral third party. This neutral third party is the meditator. Some of the benefits of mediation with a neutral mediator include:

  • Working through issues in a customized format so the marriage can end in an amicable and cost effective way
  • Keeping the communication lines open so the process of divorce runs as smoothly as possible
  • Having a third party available to help brain storm solutions that everyone can agree on
  • Having someone there to keep the couple focused on the issues at hand and trying not to get off track
  • Sometimes determining what issues can be agreed upon, thereby narrowing the issues that a judge has to decide

The key to an effective mediation is to be fully prepared. A mediation without preparation can be frustrating and a waste of time, energy and money.
