Divorce Mediation

Mediation Attorney in Tampa

In our state, there are alternatives to divorce litigation in the event that the two parties cannot come to an agreement regarding the terms of their separation. One of these alternatives is mediation. This process can provide permanent results in one's divorce case, and may also be quicker and less costly than undergoing a trial in a divorce court. Mediation may be undertaken with or without legal representation, but in hiring a Tampa, FL divorce lawyer one will likely have a stronger chance of a resolution that is to their benefit and the benefit of their loved ones.

What does a Tampa mediator do?

Mediation is an alternative for those individuals that want to resolve the major issues in their divorce without resorting to a contentious and possibly drawn out legal battle. It begins when two ex-spouses meet with a mediator at a non-judicial location. With help from the mediator, the parties can address the issues that they do not agree on regarding their separation.

A mediator differs greatly from a divorce court judge in that a judge is not looking for compromise. Rather, the judge makes a decision and the parties must adhere to its terms. A mediator is looking for a way for both individuals to settle the case in a matter that leaves them both satisfied. The mediator cannot order or force either party to agree to an action, but can only guide them towards an amicable resolution. Both parties retain full decision-making control during the process.
