Understand mediation before your first session

One of the options that you have for resolving the terms of your divorce is mediation. If you choose this option, you and your ex will have control over who gets what and other terms of the divorce. You will work together to decide the exact terms. This option is a feasible one for many people, including those who don't exactly get along.

Is divorce mediation right for you?

Mediation is a form of dispute resolution recommended and often mandated by Florida judges. While mediation offers many benefits for divorcing couples, it is not a productive approach for everyone. Learning about how mediation works and consulting your attorney can help you determine whether mediation is worthwhile for you.

Without a recent work history, they might wonder how they are going to make it.

Mediation for divorce can be a good thing

When you watch television, there is a chance that you have seen some really nasty divorces.

If you are going through a divorce, you can consider mediation as a possible alternative to go through with the divorce.

Mediation can help you to get divorce issues resolved

The issues that surround a divorce can include subjects that lead to heated conversations. In some cases, you and your ex might feel like you are going around and around with the same problems.

Many couples look at separation and divorce as almost interchangeable words.

Did you know divorce can impact physical health?

Going through a divorce can impact your entire life -- including your personal health. The longer, more bitter the divorce battle is, often the more impact it can have on short-term health.

Florida has high divorce rate compared to other states

Should you date while going through divorce?

You've served the petition and everyone is aware that the marriage is ending.
