South Florida Mediation Without Attorneys

Mediation is a way for you and your spouse to work through the intricacies of separating and divorce without hiring attorneys. If you choose this route, you may have a less expensive divorce and a better co-parenting relationship.

Many married couples have found that divorce mediation works best in their situation. If you and your spouse both agree to mediation and to civilly work towards a fair agreement, then this may be the best route for you.

Working with a divorce mediator is different than hiring a family law attorney. A mediator cannot give legal advice, but can help you reach a decision about child custody (timesharing), child support, alimony, division of assets, and more. A divorce mediator who is also a family law attorney can also prepare a settlement agreement and parenting plan and help you file for divorce. Hiring a family law attorney as a divorce mediator can help create a smooth transition to being divorced.

The process for divorce mediation can take various routes depending on the couple and the situation. Some couples go through mediation without attorneys (also called pro se mediation), then the file the paperwork with the court. Others may already have an attorney and decide to involve a mediator to help reach decisions a bit faster than normal. And some couples choose to file with the courts and then work with a mediator to reach their final decisions.

The above is intended as general information and not legal advice.

An uncontested divorce means that the spouses agree on the division of marital property, alimony, and child custody, support, and visitation. The spouses sign a Marital Settlement Agreement and go to court for a quick hearing to finalize the divorce. The cost of an uncontested Florida divorce is usually minimal. It generally takes 30 days after the parties sign the Marital Settlement Agreement for the court to finalize the uncontested divorce. This time will vary depending on how busy the courthouse is, but an uncontested divorce with both spouse's participation is typically the fastest.
