Arizona Family Law Mediator Attorneys
When seeking an end to a family law case, there are a variety of ways in which we can pursue a resolution. Mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), can be an option for a more cordial and cooperative process of making agreements that pertain to a divorce and other issues.
If you are considering a less stressful way of resolving your divorce, turn to our divorce mediation attorneys at Singer Pistiner, PC. We are a firm who understands our clients’ unique concerns and works to design a solution that suits their needs. Though we are skilled litigators and can argue cases in court, we realize that not every case is best suited to that avenue of resolution.
Call us now at (480) 418-7011, or contact us by e-mail for a free consultation. We can help you learn more about mediation and how it may be beneficial in your situation.
What Is Mediation?
Mediation is used to resolve family law issues and other legal matters outside of the courtroom with the assistance of a third-party neutral mediator. This is process that enables the parties to more peacefully manage the stress often created by legal disputes. The agreements reached in mediation are not binding unless the parties both consent to enter into settlement agreement. If an agreement is not reached during mediation, the parties are free to seek the assistance of the court in reaching a resolution.
Mediation can be an effective avenue of resolution for a wide range of family law matters, including:
- Child support
- Child custody and visitation
- Spousal maintenance (alimony)
- Property division
Divorce mediation offers the parties less costly alternatives to litigation as well as offering the parties a chance to determine the outcomes on their own time schedules.
What Can I Expect During Divorce Mediation?
Divorce mediation is a settlement route (alternative to going to court) that is often less stressful, less time consuming, and less expensive. During the divorce mediation process, our divorce attorney will speak with you in depth to learn about you and your spouse, the details about your marriage, and to fully understand what you’d like to achieve in the settlement. Next, you will meet with all parties, including your attorney and the mediator to start the process of coming to an agreement, and your attorney will assist in negotiating a favorable divorce settlement.
How Does Divorce Mediation Save Time and Money?
When going through a divorce, settling in court can be extremely time consuming as well as costly. Attending court is time consuming alone, and may not always work with your schedule. Court fees for a divorce can add up quickly and may make the process feel overwhelming. Mediation, on the other hand, can be done on a schedule that works for you and will avoid court fees.
