In Florida, there are two types of divorces:
A contested divorce is when spouses cannot agree on the terms of their divorce. In Florida, equitable distribution, child custody, alimony, and child support are commonly “contested.”
An uncontested divorce means both husband and wife agree on the terms of the divorce.
Whether your Florida divorce is a contested divorce or uncontested, it is almost always a very stressful and emotional time for one or both parties. Even if you believe you can settle your divorce “amicably” going it alone is unnecessary and widely discouraged. In either a contested or uncontested divorce scenario, as a seasoned divorce attorney, my experience has proven that those who are represented by a skilled divorce attorney are more likely to obtain a judgment or marital settlement agreement that will be highly satisfactory and in your best interest.
Helping you move securely into your future is what I strive for.

Divorce Mediation – Is Mediation Required in Florida When Divorcing?
Couples who are anticipating a trial date for their contested divorce may be ordered by the courts to go through mediation before that date is set. Mediation can also be voluntary but this type of mediation I’m referring to is handled differently than a collaborative divorce.
You may voluntarily choose to go to mediation with your spouse in an attempt to resolve some or all of the specifics of your divorce. It is important to understand, however, that any mediated marital settlement agreements should always be reviewed by an experienced divorce attorney prior to giving it to a judge for approval. Remember, once your final dissolution of marriage is entered, it is binding. It’s therefore beneficial to make sure the terms of your divorce are acceptable because nobody wants to go back to the courts once the divorce is final for modifications or enforcements. Wendy Doyle-Palumbo will help you get your divorce settlement right the first time, so you can move forward with your life.
Contact Wendy Doyle Palumbo if you would like to speak in detail about mediation, the collaborative divorce process, or litigating a divorce case.
