Here is how to save time and money on your divorce in Tampa, Clearwater or St. Petersburg

You and your spouse have decided that your marriage is not worth saving. Now you need to decide how you are going to end the marriage in the quickest and most economical way possible. The first option is a litigated divorce. A litigated divorce is an option to divorcing couples that gives the power of decision making to a court. A judge that does not know your situation will equitably distribute child time sharing, assets and debt to both you and your spouse. This is a very expensive and impersonal approach to a divorce, and not the best solution.

The better solution is to do a mediated divorce. Mediated divorce is when you and your spouse meet with an impartial third party that has the tools to help parties come to an agreement regarding the terms of your divorce.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the legal system came to a standstill. Court cases were taking longer than ever and Natalie needed to come up with a way to help people get through the divorce in a timely fashion. She began a process known as virtual mediation. Instead of meeting in an office somewhere in Tampa, Florida, you and your spouse meet separately in your own virtual meeting rooms. Natalie will flip between each meeting room and help you both work out your issues. You and your spouse can all be in separate locations and still meet in a virtual space to decide the terms of your divorce.

What are the benefits of a virtual mediation?

1. Less intrusive

We all know that sometimes divorces are not exactly the easiest thing to get through. If you and your spouse are not on speaking terms and don’t want to be anywhere near each other, you will need a mediator to help you go through the process of negotiating your divorce. Natalie specializes in helping couples with a contentious relationship work together in a safe and meaningful way.

2. Less money

Because mediated divorce is almost always quicker than a litigated divorce, you will save a lot of money on legal fees. A mediated divorce can often be accomplished in one session compared to months of court proceedings.

3. More safety

Even though the State of Florida has begun phase three of reopening, COVID-19 is still an issue affecting many people. Meeting separately is an effective way to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
