           Marivette Gonzalez is a State of Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Law Mediator as well as an experienced family law attorney in Central Florida. As a mediator, Marivette Gonzalez, is not the Attorney for either party. She takes off her attorney hat and is a neutral third person. Marivette Gonzalez helps facilitate the negotiations and creates a respectful atmosphere to allow the parties to reach the best possible outcome as a disinterested and unbiased third party during a mediation. She helps create solutions to the issue that are agreeable to all parties involved. The mediation process gives the parties themselves control rather than a lawyer or judge. It allows the parties to create a solution that works best for them and their family rather than letting someone else, like a lawyer or judge. In mediation each party is empowered and encouraged to express his or her concerns so that all perspectives are taken into account to reach an optimal solution for all under the circumstances.

          “Mediation” means a process whereby a neutral third person called a mediator acts to encourage and facilitate the resolution of a dispute between two or more parties. It is an informal and non-adversarial process with the objective of helping the disputing parties reach a mutually acceptable and voluntary agreement. In mediation, decision making authority rests with the parties. The role of the mediator includes, but is not limited to, assisting the parties in identifying issues, fostering joint problem solving, and exploring settlement alternatives. Florida Statue Section 44.1011(2) (2016).

           The Mediation Process: The mediation process starts with the parties meeting with the mediator, with or without attorneys. The mediator may speak to the parties separately, called a caucus, so they may address some of their concerns more comfortably. The mediator cannot give any legal advice and therefore it may be important to hire an attorney before attending mediation.  If the case is resolved, Marivette Gonzalez, assists in preparing the document which is to be submitted to the court. In family cases, this agreement then must be approved by the court.
