Retaining Control And Reducing Conflict Through Divorce Mediation

Striving to resolve conflicts facing spouses or families without the need for court intervention is an essential element of our services at Gladstone & Weissman, P.A. Often, it is in the best interests of our clients to avoid the trauma and expense of litigation. It is only if these efforts at settlement prove fruitless that the courts become the last, best form of dispute resolution.

Our firm's enduring values are expressed in our conversations with clients — caring, thorough, insightful and reliable. We are pleased to represent individuals who value such qualities in their legal counselors.

Mediating Property And Support Agreements In Florida

Mediation is the process by which the parties and their lawyers meet with a neutral professional to discuss ways of resolving the issues presented in their case. Ideally, the mediator should be a lawyer well-versed in the sophisticated support and asset division issues surrounding complex divorces and high net worth divorces.

Regardless of who mediates, his or her role is to help the participants determine what is most important to them in an agreement and to assist them in achieving a mutually satisfactory result. The mediator facilitates communication and helps to guide the participants to an agreement. The mediator may help the participants memorialize the agreement in writing. Our attorneys guide our clients through the mediation process and memorialize any resolutions in a comprehensive, carefully written settlement agreement.

Once signed, your marital settlement agreement is legally binding and can only be set aside in rare circumstances, such as where the other party misrepresented something important. If the judge finds the agreement acceptable, it is ratified by the court and incorporated into the court's final judgment of dissolution of marriage.
