Family Mediation Services

Family mediation helps resolve conflict in divorce and paternity related issues, thus avoiding long and expensive court battles.  Kathryn is here to help you resolve your disputes in these areas:

You and your spouse share the cost of our fees. Most clients split the cost equally, but you and your spouse may choose how to share the fees.

Both spouses must participate in family mediation.

Mediation is voluntary; in other words, you make your own decisions. Even if the court has ordered you to attempt mediation, you still have control over what you agree to.  The best results occur when both spouses fully participate. Both spouses must attend all sessions.  If one spouse has moved out of Florida, we can still mediate your Florida divorce!  Ask about our virtual video meeting services.

In mediation, you and your spouse work through the common issues that must be settled for a Florida divorce. Also, Kathryn will help you identify and settle marital and family issues that are unique to you and your family. She is knowledgeable about Florida divorce, and she will provide a road map and help you navigate.

The outcome of your family mediation is up to you.

Family mediation can help you reach an agreement you both feel is fair, so that you both can be comfortable with the results.  We never pressure or force anyone into an agreement.

In mediation, you work through many tough areas. Sometimes spouses just do not know how to talk about the issues, and communication gets stalled or even hostile.  Kathryn helps buffer the emotions, helping you maintain civil communication during your family mediation sessions.  This often leads to creative solutions for the issues.

You are not required to hire an attorney,  but you always have that right, even in family mediation.

You may always have an attorney of your choice review your agreement before you sign it. Your attorney is always welcome in your mediation sessions.
