In my Florida divorce case, what is the difference between court ordered and private mediation?
Court-ordered mediation is mediation that happens after our divorce case is already filed. It is a process where the parties are actually ordered to go to mediation by the court. Private mediation can be done before you ever even file for a divorce. A lot of times, we also consider private mediation while there’s a divorce pending. It’s a mediation where you use an outside attorney to do the mediation, and then the court-ordered mediation, sometimes you’ll go to a court facility to do the mediation.
