Orlando Family Law Mediation
Mediation is a confidential, non-adversarial process to resolve problems with the help of an impartial third party. The role of the mediator is to facilitate communication between the parties, assist them in identifying and focusing on the real issues of the dispute, and generate options for settlement. Instead of the judge, decision-making authority does not reside with the mediator, but rather with the parties seeking to resolve the dispute. The agreement reached by the parties is incorporated into the final judgment or court order and is subject to the approval of the court.
The potential advantages of mediation include the following:
- Less expensive than litigating and going to trial
- Reduces or minimizes the emotional stress on the family
- Control over the decisions made and agreements reached
