Arizona Divorce Mediator
Divorce Mediation Throughout Arizona
A divorce mediator plays a crucial role in the mediation process. He or she will need to act as a neutral party to help both spouses reach agreements about sensitive issues such as child custody, child support, spousal support, property division, and visitation. At the same time, the divorce mediator will need to work to ensure any agreements that are reached are in the best interests of the child or children involved.
The mediator will also need to make sure both spouses are fully disclosing all pertinent information regarding assets, property, and other key issues. The divorce mediator may give each spouse particular “homework assignments” to gather information or may give spouses time to think between the mediation sessions.
We are experienced divorce mediators who are fully committed to helping our clients avoid courtroom litigation through mediation. Going to court can be expensive and time-consuming as well as emotionally trying. By avoiding litigation, you and your family can be spared a great deal of trouble and heartache.
Why hire a divorce mediation attorney?
If you are considering divorce mediation as an alternative to a contested divorce in court, you may wonder whether it is necessary to work with an attorney. While the decision to hire legal counsel is entirely in your hands, there are important factors to consider. The outcome of your divorce agreement, whether reached through mediation or litigation, will have a significant impact on your life for many years to come. These matters are often highly sensitive and may be difficult to deal with for this reason. Divorce mediation may offer you the more cost-effective and less time-consuming resolution you have been looking for, but you may still be at risk of facing a less than optimum outcome if you do not fully understand your legal rights.
A divorce mediation attorney can assist you by acting as your counsel through the mediation process. Your attorney can coach you and ensure you are fully educated regarding the process and all the issues that will need to be addressed so you are not taken advantage of at any point. Because your attorney will also have extensive legal knowledge and experience, he or she can also recommend innovative settlement ideas that help you and your spouse agree where you never thought you could. An attorney can also help you by drawing up the appropriate divorce paperwork when the mediation agreement is complete.
