Divorce Mediation Experience You Can Trust

Kathy Macchione Leggett

Florida Supreme Court Certified Civil, Family & Dependency Law Mediator

Early in my profession, I worked in a very contentious family law practice. I witnessed couples being pitted against each other and families torn apart. Litigation would often drag on for years and when the divorce was finally granted, both parties were emotionally exhausted and financially drained.

Since 2007 I have been mediating cases for couples who want to be in control of the outcome of their divorce and would rather keep the thousands of dollars in attorney’s fees for themselves and their children.

As a Florida Supreme Court Certified Mediator and Parenting Coordinator, I am trained to assist families who wish to work out the terms of their divorce or parenting schedules without the heartache and cost of litigation.

Unlike other mediators, I am also a practicing mental health clinician, and have the ability to help you navigate through the emotional ups and downs everyone experiences with divorce.

As a Mediator, I do not represent either party. I work for both of you and guide you to make decisions that are in the best interest of your children as well as to accomplish the best outcome for your futures.

An Experienced Mediator Can Make a Significant Difference During Difficult & Emotional Times

Divorce and Family Law Mediation

Even when couples are working well together, divorce is a very emotional process. Because Kathy Leggett is also a seasoned mental health clinician, she can help you navigate through this difficult time and provide resources for you, your spouse, and your children if needed.

Litigation can often take up to 2 years even with a simple divorce. Dragging through the court system is an emotionally draining period of time. Everyone goes through the normal adjustment process that accompanies divorce – but Divorce Mediation works quickly and efficiently helping you to move forward and live your new life.
