How do mediating spouses protect their legal rights in Florida?

In order for you to know and protect your legal rights, it is important that you speak to an attorney first, otherwise, you may give up something that you would or should be entitled to. One way to protect your legal rights during meditation is to seek counsel. You can also hire an attorney to actually attend the mediation with you, and tell you your legal rights while you’re in the mediation.

Though you are not forced to go to court, however, if there is an issue you and your spouse cannot agree on, you will have to go to court in order for the judge to make the decision. As an example, if you and your spouse can agree on a visitation schedule with the children, you can have an attorney write up a stipulated order then both sides sign it and send it in to become a court order. But, if you or your spouse can’t agree on some issues, such as child support, spousal support, or even how much money the other party earns, you are going to have to go to court to ask a judge to make that decision.
