Florida's No-Fault Divorce Process

Florida, like many states, does not consider fault as a ground for divorce. However, in certain circumstances, fault may impact the equitable distribution of marital property, alimony, and parental time-sharing determinations. This is just one of many reasons why it is extremely important to hire a law firm with significant experience handling complex divorces in Florida.

Divorce Mediation

You might be wondering how divorce mediation works. During this process, a mediator will facilitate peaceful negotiations and discussions between you and your spouse. The mediator functions as an impartial third-party, who is separate and not aligned with either your attorney or the attorney of your spouse.

The mediator will focus on your and your spouse's interests, giving both of you a chance to air your concerns on equal footing. His or her goal will be to promote understanding and communication at all times to achieve the following goals:

  • To arrive at a legally appropriate, equitable divorce agreement that is acceptable to both parties.
  • To avoid the costs, expenses, and stresses associated with divorce court litigation.
  • To minimize the chances that the spouses will become hostile with one another.

When these three goals can be achieved, the advantages of mediation are clear.

Mediation proceedings are obviously not going to be appropriate for all couples. A skilled mediator can do a lot to guide couples -- even disagreeing couples -- toward reaching a peaceful divorce settlement. However, some spouses will not be able to get along no matter what a mediator does. It is therefore important for couples to keep a realistic perspective when deciding whether divorce mediation is the correct path for them.
