Danielle Lord is a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator. She has experience as a family law litigator and uses her knowledge from such experiences in her mediation practice. Parties involved in family law litigation are typically required to attend a mediation. Mediation is a process in which the mediator, a neutral and impartial individual, acts to encourage and facilitate the resolution of a dispute without informing how it should be resolved. Mediation is a time when the parties have the ability to control the outcome of their case and this is appealing to many.
Parties may attend mediation before they file their case or while an active case is pending. Mrs. Lord serves as a mediator in both pre-litigation family matters and during litigation. Some areas of family law that may be mediated include time sharing/custody, parental responsibility, child support, alimony, distribution of assets and debts, and attorney’s fees. Parties are not required to have an attorney represent them during their mediation.
Mediation can be cost effective and expedite a resolution for you. Mrs. Lord enjoys mediating because it gives the parties the chance to make the decisions and determine their own path. If a joint resolution is agreed upon then Mrs. Lord will draft the agreement for both parties’ review and signature. If an agreement is not reached then the Court will be notified by the mediator that no agreement has been reached and that an impasse has occurred.
Mrs. Lord charges $200.00 per hour for private mediation. Mrs. Lord travels for mediations on a case by case basis.
