The Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Affordable Client-Friendly Flat Fees
Providing Quality Results for a Fraction of the Cost
The divorce process in Flagstaff can be expensive. This is an unwanted added stress factor in a time where your finances may already be taking quite the blow. When you choose the court system, you have to consider the legal fees involved. Many attorneys charge hourly rates, meaning that you have to be mindful of every court appearance as well as any phone calls and other communications. This can add up quickly, especially if your case is complicated.
Arizona Divorce provides a clear no-nonsense approach to our services. We provide a clear flat rate for divorce mediation services. We hope that by providing some financial relief, you can enter your mediation process with less stress and tension. The less stress you are experiencing, the more open you’ll be to communication and problem-solving. This helps the process move along quickly and effectively.
Private and Confidential
Setting on Your Divorce Terms
In the courtroom, your legal representative will essentially take charge. They may even advise you not to discuss your divorce directly with your spouse. Instead of talking to one another, you are left to rely on your attorneys to communicate for you effectively, especially when speaking with the judge. This added stress can explode when miscommunications happen. This can cause any simple solutions to possibly be dragged out, requiring more time and money.
In mediation, there is no miscommunication because you are speaking directly to each other. This method has proven to be effective, even for couples who experience high conflict. This is due to the focus on problem-solving and finding common ground in your different issues. Understanding that it doesn’t have to be a battle, opens the door to finding beneficial agreements.
Less Time, Lower Conflict
Avoid the Stress of the Courtroom
The courtroom can provide several additional stresses to your divorce process. You are turning decision-making over to a stranger, which can make both sides feel a bit lost. The court process can also cause fighting to escalate, due to the stress of high legal fees and the emotional pain that can be brought up as the case progresses. Avoiding the courtroom means less stress by preventing unnecessary conflict. The less conflict you experience, the less time you have to stay in the process and the less cost you have to worry about.
A neutral mediator can help you and your spouse make the important decisions you need to complete the divorce process. They will act as a guide, moving the discussion along and keeping everyone focused on the big picture goals. Instead of a judge making decisions, you and your spouse will work towards making the decisions on asset and debt division, child custody, and child or spousal support. This allows you to create agreements that are tailored to your specific needs and desires.
Choose a healthier divorce process
Protecting Your Children
In a divorce, your future is often not the only one that is uncertain. You want to do what is best for your kids, but in the heat of a courtroom battle, this can often be forgotten. Court litigation often increases feelings of resentment and anger towards the other spouse. This can ultimately hurt the kids the most and damage their relationship with one or both spouses.
Mediation brings that tension down because you aren’t worried about someone else deciding the fate of your children. With the guidance of your mediator, you will work through all parenting issues and reach agreements on financial and legal obligations as well as a parenting schedule that works for both of you. This lets you focus on what is really best for your kids. Mediating also provides you an opportunity to work together through a difficult life moment, this ability can carry into a healthy co-parenting relationship.
