Couples who choose divorce mediation in Orlando can also control the timeline. Couples can consult their mediator as many times as they like to settle. They are less dependent on the schedule of the litigation lawyers and the court system.

 Mediation is confidential between spouses and the mediator. Details of your divorce can be made public in most cases.

Mediation can be a great option for parents who are concerned about their children during a divorce. This is because it allows them to reach an amicable agreement on parenting and finances.

Because an Orlando mediator will not represent you or your spouse, the cost will be lower. Mediation can be a good option for people who want to use their attorney fees to rebuild their lives.

Couples that choose mediation can decide the terms of their settlement agreement. Mediators are familiar with the logistics of divorce and can help you reach a well-rounded settlement.

These agreements reflect the individual desires and preferences of both spouses. Couples who choose the litigation process may not have enough time to customize their agreements for family needs or lifestyles. This is particularly true when a divorce is decided by a judge.

  • Asset and Liability Distribution
  • Child and spousal support
  • Parenting Plan
  • We will prepare all the documents that are required by the court, including your marital settlement agreement (MSA) and parenting plan.

The Advantage of Divorce Mediation Orlando

The advantage of divorce mediation Orlando offers many benefits for couples navigating the challenging terrain of separation. One primary benefit is its emphasis on fostering open communication and collaboration between both parties. Unlike traditional litigation, mediation encourages constructive dialogue, allowing couples to express their concerns and desires in a controlled, neutral setting. This often leads to more amicable resolutions and reduces the emotional strain typically associated with divorce proceedings.

Additionally, mediation tends to be more cost-effective and time-efficient compared to court battles, as it avoids lengthy legal procedures and associated expenses. Moreover, by actively participating in crafting agreements regarding child custody, asset division, and spousal support, couples retain a sense of autonomy and control over their futures. This collaborative approach promotes long-term stability and facilitates a smoother transition into post-divorce life for both spouses and any children involved. In essence, divorce mediation Orlando offers a dignified and pragmatic alternative for couples seeking to dissolve their marriage with minimal conflict and maximum mutual respect.

Why Successful Solution’s Mediation Is Your Best Choice

In mediation, the parenting plan is a major focus. We will discuss where your children are going to be during the week and create a holiday-sharing plan that takes into account both parents’ wishes. We will address all of the above issues, as well as many others, in order to reduce future negotiations and issues.

We will address the divisions of assets and liabilities based on your discussions, or we may suggest alternative creative approaches to reaching a settlement.

Florida law is very specific about child support. Child support is calculated for you. We identify the parents who should pay and the amount.

Many couples find it difficult to settle the issue of alimony or spousal maintenance. There is no formula for alimony, as laws on spousal support change frequently. As neutral mediators, we are unable to give legal advice. We can only provide information about the types of alimony.

Benefits of Choosing Successful Solution

  • Free Consultation: Call us and we will answer all of your questions, or come together for a free consultation that is free, with no obligations.
  • Private and Confidential: The communication within mediation takes place under a veil that is both private and confidential.
  • With or without an Attorney: While you always have the option to consult a lawyer, it is not mandatory.
