Jacksonville Divorce Mediation

   

Whether you have filed a case or a case has been filed against you, the cost of bringing your case before the judge can be many thousands of dollars and take many months. Fortunately, there is an alternative - Jacksonville divorce mediation

Divorce mediation is a lower cost alternative to costly litigation. The simple fact is that Florida law requires both sides to attend a divorce mediation prior to a judge hearing your case. While the great majority of family law disputes are resolved at mediation, most of those cases are settled in the weeks or days prior to a court hearing. Most cases that are not resolved before trial involve child custody or whether various assets should be termed marital or non-marital property.

A divorce mediation held prior to the start of the litigation offers the parties the opportunity to resolve their issues without going through the expensive, time consuming litigation process. However, a divorce mediation at this stage is voluntary and requires that both parties be willing participants.

Typically, a mediation will cost less than $1,000.00. The exact cost depends on the length of the mediation. Clearly, this amount - while not cheap - is far less than the cost of litigation. Hiring experienced divorce lawyers in Jacksonville FL typically costs a minimum of $5,000.00. A successful divorce mediation will allow the Court system to expedite your case as an uncontested divorce.
