As with any type of negotiation, timing is everything. In the State of Florida, all parties to a divorce have to attend mediation, which is a setting promoting settlement of the disputed issues in the divorce. The question becomes whether or not to settle.
The answer is, it depends. Mostly on your mindset and your circumstances. Ask yourself the following:
1. Am I ready to move on.
2. Can I manage with what is negotited and on the table.
3. Has there been full financial disclosure and if not, do I care.
4. How are the kids doing?
5. Can I take the stress of a trial.
6. Do I have sufficient funds to support litigation.
While each case is different, there may be other considerations as well. These include the health of the parties, age, incomes, extended families, is another marriage imminent, and other such considerations.
