Do mediators in Florida give legal advice?
Mediators are unbiased and neutral individuals who mediate the terms between parties at mediation to attempt to come to a settlement agreement. It is unethical for them to provide any type of legal advice to either party, even if they are a licensed family law attorney. However, there are some some cases in which a mediator is not a licensed attorney. When selecting a mediator, make sure you know his or her qualifications.
