    Is Court Always Necessary?

    A trip to the courthouse isn’t always necessary for every family law matter. In some cases, issues can be resolved with the help of mediation. The success of using mediation depends on the skill levels of the mediator and the willingness of all parties to be open­minded and fair. Ft. Lauderdale has many highly skilled and capable individuals to act as a fair representative in your mediation process.

    What is Mediation?

    Mediation is a different way to try to resolve disputes between two parties instead of going to court. A mediator is an impartial third party who tries to make communication go more smoothly for everyone so that issues can be solved by using compromise. The mediator works with everyone involved to help them come to solutions that are mutually agreeable to everyone. The legal system in Ft. Lauderdale is just as experienced in helping people resolve their issues with the help of a mediator as in a courtroom.

    What Are the Positive Effects of Mediation?

    Mediation can be a very beneficial process, especially for children. Numerous studies have shown that children suffer less during a parent’s divorce when the parents are able to get along and work as a team. Obviously, this is an ideal that isn’t always possible, but children do benefit from seeing their parents come to an agreement together, especially in comparison to decisions made by fighting.

    Mediation empowers both parties as well, which can help reduce feelings of vulnerability and powerlessness during a divorce. You’re less likely to feel taken advantage of when you have some control over the decisions you make, especially potentially costly decisions related to divorce, alimony, or child custody.

    Mediation is also cost effective. In Ft. Lauderdale, as everywhere else, divorce and custody proceedings that go to court can become very expensive. In addition to paying for attorney fees, you also have lost wages for the time you have to be in court. If you can resolve your disputes peacefully with the help of a mediator, you can save a lot of time and hassle.
