Winston Law PA


Divorce can be a legally and emotionally complex process that can end up being very expensive.  In order to keep the costs of divorce down, Winston Law, P.A. suggests working quickly with an attitude toward resolution.   Mediation is used as an important tool to keeping divorce more cost effective.  Mediation involves the use of an independent and neutral mediator to help negotiate a settlement between the divorcing parties.  The goal of mediation is to reach an agreement that both sides can be happy with, resolving the issues within the divorce in an amicable and confidential manner.

Most mediations follow a similar format.  The mediator starts the process by giving an introduction and explaining the process, then each attorney explains their parties position.  After, the parties are usually separated and the mediator goes back and forth relaying offers and counteroffers.  Confidentiality is very important during mediation, that way each party feels free to negotiate without worrying their statements will be used against them in court.  If an agreement is reached, a Final Judgment will then be drafted laying out the agreement between the parties.  If an agreement is not reached, the parties will have to look to the court to decide their issues.

If you or a loved one are considering divorce or are interested in more information about mediation, contact Winston Law, P.A. at [email protected] or (561) 670-9375.
