What Is Mediation In A Florida Divorce Case?

Listen as Kissimmee divorce attorney, Linda Gruszynski explains what mediation is and how it relates to the divorce process in Florida.

Family law cases in Florida generally go to mediation. Mediation is the process in which an impartial third party sits down with both parties and their attorneys in an attempt reach an agreement on some or all of the issues in the case.

In Florida, if any portion of your divorce case remains unsettled you will go to mediation prior to the trial where the case is finally decided. The mediation must have occurred within six months prior to the trial. If your previous mediation occurred before that timeframe, you may have to attend again, so divorce cases that take a long time to resolve may be in mediation on multiple occasions.

I was referred to Draper Law by my father in-law after being hit from behind in an auto accident. I didn't realize, at the time, what an important decision I was making by hiring a personal injury attorney to represent me. Charles Draper took the time to explain the process and what I could expect. His professional team was there for me every step of the way through a long, and often complicated, legal experience. I just want to express my sincerest gratitude for all the efforts that were taken by Charlie and his team on my behalf in obtaining a settlement on my case.
