Divorce Mediation with Successful Solutions

Divorces don’t have to be bitter or lengthy. Successful Solution assists clients in resolving divorce cases in Boca Raton, FL through mediation, a sensible alternative to litigation. Our divorce mediator can represent clients during mediation or serve as a neutral third party when both parties have legal representation.

How Divorce Mediation Works

Divorce mediation in Boca Raton FL is a process where a neutral third party, known as a “mediator,” helps divorcing couples reach an agreement without going to trial. In Florida, attending at least one mediation session is required for all divorce cases. Before the session, parties and their lawyers should meet several times to discuss issues like child support, alimony, and child custody. Being prepared helps both sides understand their positions, making it easier to resolve disputes. Our representation in mediation focuses on maximizing your chances of success.

The mediator’s role is to facilitate a settlement, considering each party’s expectations. A skilled family law mediator, like Jill St. Louis, can guide parties to a realistic and amicable resolution. Once an agreement is reached, it’s signed by both parties and submitted to the court.

Choosing a mediator with the right skills is crucial for a successful process. Jill St. Louis, with extensive experience, brings a unique understanding of issues like child custody, parenting, and time-sharing.

How Mediation Benefits You

Mediation is a great way to resolve divorce and other family law issues.

Speed

Mediation yields faster results compared to litigation. It can conclude in a single session, and in some cases, it might extend to two days. Typically, the mediator's proposed settlement agreement is provided within one week.

Cost-effectiveness

Successful mediation can save attorneys' fees and other legal expenses that the parties would incur otherwise.

Satisfaction

Mediation centers around compromise, allowing parties to focus on what matters most to them. Generally, parties find more satisfaction in mutually agreed-upon solutions compared to court decisions.

Effectiveness

Parties who reach their own agreements are more likely than others to adhere to its terms, as they have been designed for workability.

Relationships after Divorce

Mediation helps minimize resentments and fosters open communication, reconciling opposing views. This promotes improved post-divorce interactions, particularly beneficial for children by avoiding the lingering effects of parental resentments.

Privacy

Trials and court proceedings can expose embarrassing details, while mediation remains confidential. Parties may feel more at ease discussing sensitive issues. To fully benefit from mediation, it's crucial to have an experienced family lawyer. Without knowledge of legal rights and case strengths, it's challenging to reach a fair settlement. Judges are more likely to approve a divorce settlement when both parties are represented by attorneys who inform them of their legal rights.

What is the role of a divorce mediator?

A divorce mediator is like a referee who helps a divorcing couple talk about and solve their problems. They’re specially trained to do this. Some mediators, who are also lawyers, know about the legal side of things, which can be helpful.

Mediation can work for any case, no matter how complicated. The mediator and the couple can also ask experts like financial planners or psychologists for help with tough issues.

Must we file for divorce first before attending mediation?

No, you don’t have to file for divorce first. If both of you agree to mediation before starting a divorce lawsuit, you can sort out all the issues during mediation.

Can my spouse and I still mediate if we don't agree?

Yes, even if you and your spouse don’t get along, a trained mediator can still help you work things out calmly.

Does a mediator meet with the spouses separately or together?

In most cases, couples talk together during mediation. But if it’s too emotional, you can work separately, and the mediator will go between you.

What happens if we cannot agree on every issue?

If you can’t agree on everything, don’t worry. You can still make progress on some things in mediation. For the rest, you can hire lawyers to help or take more time to think and come back to mediation later.
