How Does Family Mediation Work?


Family law can be incredibly complex, due to the fact that dissolving of a family is highly emotionally charged. Combined with frustrations from both parties, concerns from children and financial burdens all around, most families would agree that avoiding court can make all the difference in the success of a case. There are two different viewpoints that develop when addressing family law matters such as divorce, child custody and child support in South Florida. In one instance, parties can opt for trial and court proceedings that can be exhausting. Seeking resolution through legal proceedings such as court brings a confrontational approach towards seeking a solution. At Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL, we believe that families deserve another option when it comes to solving family law disputes, and family mediation in South Florida can make all the difference in settling disputes.

Mediation is an incredibly useful process in resolving many family law disputes. Our attorneys and specialists at Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL are especially qualified to address disputes through mediation. Our mediation sessions are led by Ms. Brodzki, a Supreme Court Certified Mediator. Every family mediation session is different for each unique situation, but the ultimate goal of family mediation is to reach an amicable agreement without the need for trial. Instead, a mediator from our team will help ensure that both parties accurately express their concerns, opinions and needs in an understanding environment. Then, the mediator works to see that both parties reach an agreement that’s suitable for all involved. Attorneys can be present at mediation sessions if desired, but more than anything the session is a safe place where both parties are encouraged to express themselves and their viewpoints.

The typical family mediation session is structured in several steps, all designed to ensure that everyone involved feels comfortable in the opinions they’ve expressed. All mediation sessions are held in a neutral space where both parties feel safe and comfortable, and performed by our impartial mediators. The steps include:

  1. Opening Remarks
  2. Explanation of Each Group’s Problems
  3. Information Gathering
  4. Issue Recognition
  5. Engaging in Calm Discussion
  6. Reaching an Agreement

Overall, family mediation in South Florida can present resolutions without the frustrations of litigation. At Brodzki Jacobs & Associates, PL, we’re committed to offering our clients the most understanding and helpful mediation processes around. We understand how frustrating family law issues can be, which is why we take a delicate approach to each and every mediation situation we encounter.
