Is Mediation Required In Florida?

Author: Olivia Dodd
Date: Feb 15 2024

Mediation is a mandatory step in the divorce process, and when your spouse suggests it as an amicable solution, it's not a gesture of goodwill but rather a legal requirement. It's crucial to be aware that the judge will likely order mediation, so don't mistake it as a favor from your spouse. To navigate this process successfully, you must gather all relevant financial documents, including bank statements, savings accounts, 401K statements, mortgage details, and credit card statements. Without this information, making informed decisions becomes challenging.

 

Understanding the reasons behind the mediation is essential. Whether it involves alimony, asset and liability division, child support, time-sharing, having a clear comprehension of all the topics to be discussed is vital. While the amount of information may feel overwhelming, mediations play a pivotal role in finalizing your divorce. Most decisions made during mediation are binding and challenging to change later.
