The Legal Aid Society receives many requests for assistance. In order to most efficiently utilize its limited resources, guidelines have been established. They are based on the type of case, financial guidelines, as well as our resources.

Citizen Dispute & Family Law Mediation Service

This is a FREE service for anyone residing in Orange County, Florida.

The Orange County Bar Association, a valued partner of the Legal Aid Society, provides this free mediation service. Citizen dispute/family law mediation is an informal, confidential approach for individuals to resolve an existing dispute. It may help you avoid filing a lawsuit and going to court. The settlement/mediation meeting is facilitated by an impartial, professional mediator who listens to both parties and encourages a resolution. By reaching a settlement, both parties avoid court costs and the uncertainty of a trial outcome. To participate in the free Citizens Dispute and Family Law Mediation Service, complete the mediation request form and email a copy to Xiomara Isanoa ([email protected]).
