Parties going through divorce often need time to resolve all the ancillary issues, such as child custody, child support, alimony and property division. Arguing all these points in front of a judge is usually expensive and drags out the process immeasurably. That is why many people opt for — and courts order — mediation prior to trial. Tucker Mitnik, P.A. provides full mediation services, representing spouses in divorce mediations and performing the role of the mediator. With more than 30 years of experience in family law litigation, we capably facilitate mediations, saving our clients time and expense.
Mediation is a less adversarial method of dispute resolution than a civil trial. In mediation, the parties meet (with or without attorneys) before a neutral mediator to discuss their goals regarding specific issues and come to an agreement they can present to the court for approval. The mediator does not attempt to impose a settlement, but simply facilitates discussions and guides the parties toward resolution.
If the parties resolve all their issues in mediation, they can present a signed settlement agreement to the court for approval. This will allow them to achieve an uncontested divorce. Whatever issues remain after the mediation has run its course must be litigated in family court before the divorce can be finalized.
