Handling Family Law and Divorce Issues Through Mediation
If you want a divorce or to modifying an existing court order, you must go through the courts. However, there is no rule stating that you cannot use mediation before filing an action in court. Whether you are going through a divorce or involved in a family-related dispute, mediation can provide you with an open forum to resolve your issues outside of the courtroom.
Mediation can save you time and money. Also, you can retain control over the decisions that will affect you and your family in the future. At Arnold Law Firm, we can represent your interests in mediation and help you negotiate a settlement that meets your needs and your goals.
What Is Mediation?
In mediation, a neutral third party presides over the mediation, known as a mediator. The mediator's job is to facilitate the negotiations and open communication between the parties.
Mediation can be used to resolve all types of family-related disputes, including:
- Legal separations
- Equitable division of property
- Child custody and support issues
- Alimony/spousal support
- Modifications and enforcement actions
While having an attorney represent you in mediation is not a requirement, it is recommended. Our Jacksonville mediation lawyers are skilled at the art of negotiation. Mediation can often be similar to a mini-trial. We fully prepare our client's cases for mediation as we could for court so that we can enter negotiations with the knowledge and resources we need to protect our clients' interests.
