Miami Divorce Mediation Attorney
Pursuing Out-of-Court Resolutions to Divorce Disputes
Divorce is a high-stakes and emotional process, but that does not mean that it needs to be resolved through a contentious courtroom battle. Many divorce disputes – even those in which the parties have serious differences – can be resolved out of court through mediation.
Miami divorce mediation lawyer Ronald H. Kauffman is committed to helping clients resolve divorce cases in a non-adversarial manner whenever possible. By counseling clients through the mediation process, he is often able to help them avoid protracted and expensive litigation.

Understanding the Divorce Mediation Process in Florida
Under Florida law, the parties to a divorce must attempt to resolve their difference through mediation before their case can proceed to trial. In many cases, mediation can be used earlier in the process to resolve all outstanding disputes before either party has filed for divorce.
In divorce mediation, the parties and their attorneys meet with a neutral mediator – sometimes together, sometimes separately – to try to negotiate a settlement agreement.
Ideally, both the mediator and the attorneys should have enough experience to anticipate what will happen if the case goes to trial. Drawing on that experience, they can help the parties negotiate an agreement without any need to have a judge decide the issues for them.
As an experienced divorce litigator who has resolved many cases out of court, Ron can advise you on your options and help you pursue the best possible outcome through mediation. Of course, if mediation does not work out, he is also fully prepared to go to trial on your behalf.
