Financial issues are not only the leading cause of stress between a husband and wife during their marriage, but also is the number one reason why couples separate and ultimately file for a divorce in Florida. In addition to arguing about money, many spouses hide financial transactions from each other which can lead to extreme mistrust during the divorce process which also makes settlement much more difficult. Litigating a divorce case can be very trying and costly. But it doesn’t have to be that way because there is an alternative – Mediation.
Mediation is more advantageous than the conventional litigation process for most couples who are going through a dissolution of marriage in a Florida Family Law Court setting. By mediating your divorce, it not only takes less time, it also costs less and Mediation of Coral Springs, Inc. has found that most couples who mediate their family law case to a complete resolution are generally more happy with the result.
One of the most difficult questions that a Florida Family Law Attorney has to answer is “How long will my divorce take?” The response should be “it depends”. It depends on a number of factors, such as whether the court system is backed, how much one party wants to delay the divorce, and the discovery process. On the other hand, resolving your case in mediation can take place very quickly if both spouses work with each other in providing timely disclosure of all financial records. At Mediation of Coral Springs, Inc., we have conducted mediations prior to one of the spouses filing a Petition for Dissolution of Marriage.
If you think about it, since money problems are leading cause of divorce why should a husband and wife spend more money or get deeper in debt just to finance a contested divorce where no one will most likely prevail on all issues. It is Mediation of Coral Springs, Inc. experience that couples who mediate don’t have the same stress levels or anxieties as those who choose to litigate their Florida Family Law case. For most people, being in a court room and having to speak is outside of their comfort zone. It can also be intimidating to be in such a formal setting – with a Florida Family Law Judge in a black robe and attorneys in suits.
Mediation is not a formal setting and at Mediation of Coral Springs, Inc. we take great measures to make it a relaxing, yet professional experience where the participants work together to resolve their dispute. One of the major benefits of mediation is that the parties have an opportunity to speak to each other face to face or through their mediator and understand the issues that are the most important to the other party – which in many cases can lead to an agreement.
Mediation of Coral Springs, Inc. has found that not every couple is an ideal candidate for the mediation process. It is not effective where one party is unable to openly express their feelings for some reason; or where one or both parties have no desire to participate in good faith at mediation. But it is always worth trying to mediate and see if you can reach an agreement and save money at the same time.
