In the Fourth Judicial Circuit (northeast Florida) all divorce cases are referred to mediation and can either use a mediator provided by the Circuit or hire a private mediator. Our office is experienced in conducting mediations and reaching mutually beneficial solutions.
Mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) instead of going to court. Mediation can be good in a case where both parties might not be far off in the goals they want. Mediation can save you in costly legal fees associated in preparing and conducting a trial. Mediation can also help narrow legal issues before a trial, which can also save in legal fees.
Sometimes, parties cannot reach an agreement in mediation. If you do not reach an agreement, you will proceed towards a trial or hearing in Court.
Mediators are paid an hourly rate, which is typically divided equally between the parties, but can be paid based on another agreement of the parties.
Ms. Harrison is a certified Mediator and Arbiter as she has completed the courses required by the State Bar of Georgia. However, her strength as a mediator, is that she brings the perspective of a family law attorney who has been there, tried cases, advised litigants and is familiar with the local courts, judges and particular rules and customs of each court.
