Find Peace of Mind with A Miami Divorce Mediation Lawyer

Once you decide to get divorced, you will have to consider and resolve a number of complex issues . You must agree on the division of marital property, child custody, visitation, child support or spousal support.

You cannot expect a smooth and uncontested divorce. Things can get out of hand pretty quickly. Even the slightest disagreement about custody arrangements can trigger a lengthy court battle.

But before putting the decision in the hands of the court, you can turn to divorce mediation lawyers for assistance. This way, you’ll have a professional who can help you exhaust all possible strategies in settling contentious issues before going into the courtroom.

What Is Mediation?

Florida laws require divorcing couples to go through mediation before resolving disagreements in court.

During mediation, you and your ex-spouse can discuss issues and conflicts. Couples undergo mediation sessions to reach an amicable resolution.

A Miami divorce mediation lawyer can help you focus on the most critical issues and negotiate the terms that would meet your best interests. Contact The Family Matters Law Firm to learn more about the process. We will help free you from the fight.

What Are The Benefits of Mediation?

Mediation is the ideal way of settling issues and disagreements in a divorce. It gives you the opportunity to be creative and come up with a settlement you can live with and that will work for you. Mainly, this method saves you time and money. Going to court is expensive, and you must attend many hearings before reaching a final decision. You can skip all that if you can find a resolution during mediation.

Mediation is also better for the children. They do not have to witness their parents have a nasty legal battle. A high-conflict custody battle is emotionally draining and can affect your children’s psychological and mental health as the process can drag on for years.

Mediation keeps you in control of the situation. You can craft customized solutions befitting your concerns rather than wait for a judge to preside over your arguments. It is in the best interest of everyone involved to have a competent Miami divorce mediation lawyer to help you find common ground with your ex-spouse.

Do I Need A Lawyer During Mediation?

During mediation, you don’t need to have a lawyer with you. The purpose of mediation is to have the parties (you and your ex) settle differences amicably with the help of a mediator. However, consulting a lawyer before mediation can help you fully understand the implications of property and debt division, custody arrangements, spousal support, and other issues.

With a mediation lawyer on your side, you’ll have a trusted professional who can coach and support you throughout the sessions. Your lawyer will help protect your best interests at all times. Give The Family Matters Law Firm a call to get started.

Why Choose The Family Matters Law Firm ?

The Florida Bar Small Logo

Legal concerns with family can cause intense stress and have far-reaching effects. This can be especially true when children are involved. You also have a lot of financial interests in a family law case, so you must partner with the right attorney. The team at The Family Matters Law Firm is the right choice for these reasons:

  • We understand family. The Family Matters Law Firm offers our clients a family-friendly environment. We understand how delicate legal issues are with spouses, partners, and children.
  • We speak Spanish. Language barriers shouldn’t be a problem when you work with our firm. We speak Spanish and can understand your personal concerns.
  • We have the experience and skills. Family law is not something anyone should take lightly. Our attorneys have been practicing law for more than 20 years. We understand the critical aspects of family law and the essential steps with each case.

What Happens If Mediation Fails?

Most couples can find common ground through mediation. Afterward, the agreement is formalized and submitted to the court for final approval. No litigation is required. That is the best-case scenario.

When issues remain unresolved despite exerting all efforts during mediation, you and your ex will be asked to go through another round of mediation. If mediation is still unsuccessful, litigation will follow.

How to Choose a Trustworthy Mediation Lawyer Who Will Help You Divorce Yourself from the Fight

Finding a trustworthy Miami mediation lawyer can make a huge difference when you’re going through a divorce. You need someone with years of experience and knowledge in divorce, custody, the division of properties, financial support, and other matters of family law.

Another factor to consider is that your mediation lawyer should be capable of handling contested divorce. While we always want to aim for the best, preparing for the worst-case scenario is also ideal.

    - Nora Adler

  • The most effective, intelligent and caring divorce lawyer in Miami.

    Emily Phillips successfully helped me to resolve a highly bitter divorce case with an excellent outcome! My ex was unreasonable and only out for blood and revenge. Her attorney only cared about taking my money and padding his pocket by filing lawsuit after lawsuit. He didn't care about the effect of litigation on my child. Emily put a stop to the shenanigans. She is a bright, intelligent, caring, reasonable, and most importantly, a very effective lawyer!
