Glendale, Arizona Divorce Mediation
Deciding to divorce is never easy, and the next steps can be stressful. In Glendale, your two main choices are completing the divorce process through mediation, or going through the court system. At Arizona Divorce, we provide mediation services that provide a simple and low-cost divorce process. We are leading experts in the field, and our work has been recognized both locally and nationally.
When you choose mediation, we help you avoid court battles that can be financially harmful and emotionally draining. Mediation provides a way to avoid the courtroom completely. This can make the process run smoother, finish faster, cost less, and be better for the health and well-being of everyone involved. We provide services in divorce mediation, child custody mediation, child support modifications, post-divorce modifications, document preparation, and so much more.
“I’m so glad we went the mediation route.”
“Well-organized, supportive, compassionate and effective: I’m so glad we went the mediation route. I was completely satisfied with the results.
Their level of skill and compassion surpassed what I expected during the difficult process of divorce.”
The Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Affordable Client-Friendly Flat Fees
Mediation Saves You Financially
Divorces can quickly get expensive, especially when you choose the court route. You have to deal with legal fees that add additional stress. In Glendale, a divorce attorney retainer can range from $5,000-$15,000, and that’s for a case that could be resolved rather quickly. The more complicated it becomes, the more you’re looking to spend.
At Arizona Divorce, we try to alleviate financial stress by providing a clear, flat fee for divorce mediation. We know that when there is less stress, there is a better chance of working together to reach beneficial agreements. We cost substantially less than the court process, while still providing the same, if not better, results.
Private and Confidential
Maintain Control of the Divorce Process
When you choose the court route, you’ll have to hire legal representation. This can be a strain on your finances, especially if you feel negotiation is going to be a problem. You have to find someone you know you can trust and will be able to speak correctly on your behalf. Your lawyer may advise you to completely stop any communication with your spouse throughout this process. This can lead to several miscommunications that can escalate any conflicts. This makes finding a solution to even a simple problem difficult. In this process, you can experience a loss of control. Your attorney takes over to address the judge as well as your spouse’s representation.
In mediation, your voice will always be yours. This stops any unnecessary miscommunications before they can turn into a larger problem. Mediation has proven itself to be highly effective, even for couples that experience high conflict. This is because mediation provides focused problem-solving. This helps to find common ground, which provides the perfect foundation for building agreements everyone can leave happy with.
Less Time, Lower Conflict
Never Step Foot in a Court Room
Mediation prevents any courtroom battles from having to take place. The court process can often escalate emotions, which can lead to disagreements that could have been avoidable. When tensions get high, the ability to work together goes out the window. This often happens because of the added fear of not having control of the situation once in the courtroom. You are essentially placing important decisions concerning your future in the hands of someone else. In a courtroom setting, you are also dealing with the added pressures of legal fees and the longer time commitment to this process.
When you choose mediation, there is already a lesser degree of stress because you retain control of the situation. You will sit down with a neutral mediator who is there to help guide you towards settling all the issues a judge would have in the courtroom setting. These issues can include asset and debt division, spousal support, child custody, child support, and other important factors. Mediation allows you to seek customizable agreements that meet the needs and desires of both parties. This provides a higher level of satisfaction overall.
Choose a healthier divorce process
Mediation Is Easier on Children
When you have children, that can make the divorce process that much more complicated. You have to focus on more than just what you want. You have to decide what would be best for your children. In a court setting, these decisions would ultimately be made by a judge. This adds pressure to fight against your spouse, which can cause greater levels of animosity. This tension can be felt by your children, which can ultimately hurt them. These battles are completely avoidable with mediation.
In mediation, you will rely on respectful communication to discuss all parenting issues and reach agreements together. At Arizona Divorce, we help you build a parenting plan. This plan includes a parenting time schedule and any legal and financial obligations. This ability to customize your agreement ensures that both sides feel heard and understood. This allows you to stay in control of your terms, which can result in a healthier co-parenting relationship following the divorce proceedings.
