In divorce mediation (often called "family mediation" in Florida), a neutral, trained professional meets with both spouses to help them work out their own solutions to the issues they're facing. The goal of family mediation is to help couples reduce the expense, time, and stress of divorce by reaching a marital settlement agreement.

The private mediator route has distinct advantages. The parties can choose their private mediator, and choose a time and a place to mediate that fits their needs. Also, the best private mediators tend to do mediation full-time or close to it, and derive their livelihood based on referrals from other divorce attorneys.

The cost of mediation may be based on Florida Statutes which provide a reduced rate for couples with a combined income of less than $100,000. Both parties will file a financial affidavit in order to establish the exact fees for divorce mediation. A Florida judge may waive mediation requirements but generally will not do so.

Eventually, the mediation will end in one of three ways, either: 1) the parties reach an agreement as to some or all issues - all parties (and their lawyers if present) must sign the agreement; 2) the mediator declares an impasse (because you, the other party, or both are unwilling to continue discussing resolution); or 3) the mediator, with the parties’ consent, continues the mediation session by adjourning for the day.

Mediation is a process that involves you, your spouse, and a neutral third party who is supposed to help you reach the best solution regarding your divorce terms. If you opt for a friendly divorce in Florida, mediation will help you reach an out-of-court settlement and get a low-cost divorce.

The goal of private mediation is to settle all your issues, with an eye toward incorporating your resolution into a written divorce settlement agreement—also referred to as a marital settlement agreement—which becomes part of your divorce judgment. And, because you've resolved all your issues, the court considers the divorce "uncontested," meaning it will go through very quickly, sometimes within a few weeks of filing the divorce petition (complaint).

Instead, a mediator works in a neutral capacity and attempts to facilitate agreement on any disputed financial or co-parenting issues. The mediator will help both parties to understand the priorities and issues involved in the divorce, clear up any misconceptions, and possibly offer ideas for reaching a resolution.
