Mediation can be a good alternative to pursue if both parties generally agree on most issues and only need to work out a few differences. The presence of a disinterested third party (mediator) can assist the communication between two spouses to work out a plan that both parties can live with.
Mediation is more about bringing parties together to promote or facilitate a conversation between the parties rather than an adversarial process where the party’s are positioned against each other, which can limit open communication. All mediations are confidential and negotiations to pursue a settlement during the mediation process cannot be used at trial.
In Florida, most contested divorces are ordered to mandatory mediation to work out the details of your divorce anyway. So, if you and your spouse are cooperative and able to communicate but still have a few issues that need to be settled, seeking mediation may be the right choice for you.
