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. Watch the video to learn more.

Linda was an exceptional lawyer. This was a divorce from (Hell) and was drug out over more than a year. My Ex's lawyer actually quit. Linda was very professional yet had a really personal touch. She actually felt like a friend through this. I really am glad I chose your law firm and would recommend you to others, especially Linda.
