A divorce attorney retainer in Chandler can cost anywhere from $5,000-$15,000, and this is for a case that might only be mildly contested. Most attorneys will charge hourly rates for several services including phone calls and court appearances.

Private and Confidential
Setting Your Own Terms
The goal of mediation is to reach agreements that work for both parties. This relies on communication and willingness to work together. In a courtroom setting, there is a clear divide. You may even be advised by your legal representation not to communicate with your spouse about the divorce. Relying on your attorneys to speak for you can lead to miscommunications that won’t see a quick resolution. Miscommunication can heighten emotion and risk greater disputes and disagreements. When conflict builds in a court setting, this often adds more time to the process, which increases how much you’ll owe your attorney in the end. Knowing that the financial burden of the situation is growing can make the situation worse.
In mediation, you’ll work with a neutral mediator who keeps the main goal in sight: a peaceful resolution of the divorce process that benefits both parties. Clear, guided communication can allow for quick solutions to divorce matters. By focusing on problem-solving, common ground can often be found and built upon. This leads to the ability to settle on your terms. While not easy by any means, this process has proven successful even for couples with high conflict tendencies.
Less Time, Lower Conflict
Benefits of Avoiding the Courtroom
By choosing mediation, you will not have the additional stressors that come with going to court. This means you don’t have to worry about attorney fees, court fees, or someone else making important decisions for you. The pressures of the court process can escalate fighting due to high legal fees, emotional pain, miscommunications, and feeling that you’re not in control of the situation. Choosing mediation over a courtroom battle leads to drastically less stress and conflict, which means less time and money spent.
A judge will settle issues such as spousal support, child custody, and asset and debt division. You may have little to no say in what the judge ultimately decides. You could seek a beneficial outcome, but you won’t know until the gavel strikes. In mediation, you make those decisions with your spouse, receiving guidance from your mediator when necessary. This puts you in control of important decisions, allowing for more mutually beneficial agreements.
Choose a healthier divorce process
Providing the Best for Your Children
You want what is best for your children. Divorce is a hard, complicated time for parents and children alike. Court proceedings can often hurt your children. This is largely due to the additional stress and high emotions of having to battle it out in the courtroom. These emotions can then be brought home, especially when trying to figure out co-parenting until a judge decides on custody agreements.
Mediation provides a means for a calm and guided conversation about what you feel is best for your children. You get to stay in control of the decisions, instead of a judge determining the conditions. Your mediator can help formulate a parenting plan that includes custody schedules, child support, and other important decisions concerning your children. Meeting this decision together can lead to better co-parenting and provide terms that are fair for all parties involved. This can make the entire process easier on your children, providing a clear example of your willingness to work together for a common goal.
