Divorce or family law cases do not need to go to trial all the time. The courts require that most cases mediate prior to trial. Mediation is a first step that can result in a more favorable or creative outcome to both parties. Unlike a court case, in mediation the decisions are not made by a judge who does not know you or your family but rather the decisions are made by the parties. Another positive aspect of mediations is that they are confidential.
As a Florida Supreme Court Certified Family Mediator, Ms. Gray brings her experience as a family law lawyer and as a divorced single mother to the table in assisting attorneys and their clients to reach settlement through the mediation process. At Gray Law, we provide amble parking space, two conference rooms, and wifi to make the mediation process as simple and comfortable as possible. Ms. Gray is also available to mediate at other law offices.
We provide parenting coordinator services for high conflict divorce or custody cases. It is sometimes constructive to have an objective trained third-party professional to assist parents in communicating and resolving issues involving the children. Co-parenting can be challenging at times and a parenting coordinator can reduce the conflict between the parents so that the children can enjoy the parents more peacefully. Sometimes a parenting coordinator is needed on a short term basis to address specific issues and in other cases a parenting coordinator is involved in all aspects of co-parenting. Each parenting coordination case is unique.
We represent current and new clients on appealing their family law case to the First District Court of Appeals. Divorce and other family law matters are non-jury trials so clients and attorneys rely on the judge to wear many hats including deciding the law and making factual determinations. When a judge has made an error with either the law or the facts then a person has the option of having the judge’s decision reviewed by the appellate court. It is not uncommon for the appellate court to reverse the trial court judge or remand the case to the trial court with specific instructions.
We have been trained in Collaborative Family Law which is the newest method to divorce amicably.
We have significant experience in Guardian Ad Litem appointments in order to serve the best interest of the children.
