In addition to its emotional costs, divorce can take a toll on your time and your finances. Some of the pain and expense of a divorce can be curtailed by choosing mediation over a trial.
Mediation is an effective legal tool that can be used to resolve family law and divorce issues before the case reaches Florida’s courtrooms. In mediation proceedings, a neutral third party helps negotiate a settlement between the two parties who are looking to obtain a divorce.
The time-sharing (custody and visitation), support, alimony, and property agreements that come out of mediation are often easier to enforce because they were mutually agreed upon. The Florida family law attorney of the Caveda Law Firm, P.A., is experienced in working with clients in Tampa, Tampa Bay and Hillsborough County who want to find less contentious ways of resolving their differences.

Experienced Dispute Mediators
The Caveda Law Firm, P.A., will either represent you at mediation or prepare you for mediation. As a six-year Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator, our founder, David Caveda, is very familiar with working with families in mediation settings.
We will help you understand the consequences of failing to resolve your disputes in mediation, and we will help you identify potential solutions. As your representative, we will explain the process and guide you through the mediation process.
Mediation is informal and confidential. Mediators do not force a settlement, but instead, use their skills to encourage and facilitate the negotiation process and to assist the parties in reaching an agreement that will keep their case from going to court.
Offers and counteroffers are made until an agreement is reached and is submitted to a judge for approval. If an agreement cannot be reached on all matters, you and your spouse can still go to trial while having come to a solution on some issues.
