The average court case lasts anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. This can even be for cases that are seemingly “amicable” and have very little to fight over. During that time, the average person spends anywhere from $3000.00 to $15,000.00 for a lawyer who bills hourly for all services (emails, phone calls, paperwork, court hours, etc.). During that time, any children are often caught in a state of “limbo” while parents are working out their personal differences. The healing process is delayed with these types of lengthy divorces.
Litigated divorces are often not prioritized in the same way that a mediated case is. This is due to many reasons. One being the sheer volume of cases being handled at one time by a family law attorney. Another being that there is no great motivation for attorneys to settle a case quickly. They are also unable to control the court back log or length of time the court process takes.
The primary goal of divorce mediation is to help clients reach a mutual agreement in the shortest amount of time. This is beneficial to the family because it puts the emphasis on the family rather than on "winning" a dispute. Research shows that mediated cases get resolved faster and with less financial drain on individuals. This is help for a divorcing couple in Orlando to move on independently in a better way.
There are a great many other benefits to family mediation, but most importantly is that someone who is going through a divorce seeking help has options. They can discuss the terms of their own divorce together in a neutral, safe environment. Their divorce mediator will be trained in Florida divorce laws and help them write out the terms of their divorce.
