TAMPA MEDIATION – A CIVILIZED DIVORCE
Amicable Divorce and Co-Parenting Through Mediation
Despite the best intentions of an amicable split, the adversarial nature of traditional divorce tends to highlight conflicts and intensify emotions. It is simply not conducive to fruitful negotiations or getting along with your ex-spouse in the future.
Pre-suit mediation offers the best opportunity for a civilized divorce. You don’t want a constant tug-of-war over the kids. You don’t want your dirty laundry aired in court. You don’t want to fight anymore.
Tampa attorney mediator Beth Reineke can help you explore mediation as the road to an amicable, civilized divorce and healthy co-parenting. She is certified by the Florida Supreme Court to conduct divorce and custody mediations, and she has over 30 years of experience assisting divorcing parties.
You and your “ex” are going to cross paths. There is enough water under the bridge without the added animosity from a bitter courtroom battle. If you have children, it is even more important that you be able to put negative emotions aside and take the high road. Your children will take their cues from your post-divorce dynamics — will your co-parenting relationship be civil and cooperative or caustic and divisive?
Beth Reineke practices extensively in pre-suit mediation, a proactive process for resolving differences prior to filing for divorce. She serves as a neutral facilitator to guide you through all the applicable family law matters, including parenting time, child support, property division and alimony. Once you have reached agreement on all the issues, she can draft the marital settlement agreement and parenting plan tailored to the specific requirements of the family court in your county.
It is one thing to say “We’re all grown-ups here.” Yet it is difficult to hold your tongue and maintain a cooperative spirit when you feel slighted or manipulated in contested divorce proceedings. We firmly believe mediation is the best avenue to a civilized divorce. The process will be less confrontational and much less expensive than traditional divorce litigation. Additionally, the details of your personal wealth and terms of your divorce settlement may remain confidential. In the end, you should be able to sit in the same church at your child’s wedding or attend graduation without incident.
