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.

Divorce Mediation FAQs
What does "pre-suit divorce mediation" mean?
Pre-suit divorce mediation is when a couple chooses to work with a mediator instead of going to court to settle their divorce. It’s a way to avoid the emotional and financial stress of hiring lawyers and fighting in court. The couple, with the help of a mediator, tries to sort out their divorce issues.
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.
How long does divorce mediation last?
Usually, private mediation sessions last 2-3 hours. Most couples can sort out their problems in the first session, but sometimes they need more. After everything’s settled, it takes about two weeks to write up the divorce agreement for the final session.
How do I know if divorce mediation is not right for my case?
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.
