Divorce Mediation – Is Mediation Required in Florida When Divorcing?
Couples who are anticipating a trial date for their contested divorce, may be ordered by the courts to go through mediation before that date is set. Mediation can also be voluntary but this type of mediation I’m refering to is handled differently than a collaborative divorce.
You may voluntarily choose to go to mediation with your spouse in an attempt to resolve some or all of the specifics of your divorce. It is important to understand however, that any mediated marital settlement agreements should always be reviewed by an experienced divorce attorney prior to giving it to a judge for approval. Remember, once your final dissolution of marriage is entered, it is binding. It’s therefore beneficial to make sure the terms of your divorce are acceptable because nobody wants to go back to the courts once the divorce is final for modifications or enforcements.
