If your marriage was full of conflict, you might be asking how you can make the fighting stop. You wonder if there is a way out of this nightmare. Or, perhaps you and your spouse are parting ways amicably. While you are in disagreement about how your divorce should be settled, you are clear you want the process to be respectful and without hostility. You would rather spend your hard earned money on your children's college education than legal fees.
In either case, going to trial and having a judge make all of the decisions in your divorce is not inevitable. In fact, most Florida divorce cases settle without the need for trial.
Mediation and negotiation can help you and your spouse resolve your disputed issues without taking your case before the judge who will make decisions for you.
Resolving your divorce through a mediated or negotiated settlement agreement has many advantages. You can achieve a mutually satisfying agreement, a known outcome, little risk of appeal, and often enjoy significantly lower legal fees. Despite the circumstances which led to the end of your marriage, it might be possible for your divorce to conclude peacefully with the help of these tools.
