The Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Affordable Client-Friendly Flat Fees
Reduce Financial Stress Through Mediation
The average cost for a divorce in Goodyear is high when seeking a court solution. You have to consider legal fees and the likelihood that your case could take longer, and be more complicated than originally expected. This can add a layer of stress that builds more tension before even stepping foot into the courtroom.
At Arizona Divorce, we want to alleviate as much stress as possible. We know that better compromises can be reached when stress levels are lower. This is why we provide a predictable, client-friendly flat fee for our divorce mediation services. This fee stays the same from start to finish, providing peace of mind when it comes to the financial investment of this process.
Private and Confidential
Personalized Divorce Terms
In a courtroom, you don’t ultimately get to decide the terms of your divorce. You discuss what you want with your attorney, they present that to your spouse’s attorney, and both sides then present their cases to a judge. The judge is going to have the full final say in not only your future but that of your children. Since attorneys take on the major role of communication in this process, the chance of miscommunications rises. This can lead to higher levels of conflict that can hinder any movement forward in decision-making.
In mediation, you do get to decide your divorce terms. There is no risk of miscommunication because there is no middle man. This process is highly effective, even for couples with high levels of conflict. Instead of battling it out, your focus is on taking the problem at hand and seeking any common ground. From there, it is easier to negotiate and find agreements that benefit both sides.
Less Time, Lower Conflict
No Courtroom Relieves Stress
Spouses never have to go to court when choosing mediation. In court, both sides can already feel as though they have lost. This is largely due to giving control of their future to the judge. The judge will make decisions on asset and debt distribution, child custody, and support. This adds pressure to each side to impress the judge and make their side seem the better choice. This can quickly escalate emotions which can lead to unnecessary fighting. Any setbacks in the courtroom can lead to not only more emotional pain but more of a financial drain due to legal fees.
A mediator is not there to make decisions for you. Your mediator acts as a neutral guide to help you settle the issues a judge would otherwise decide. This allows you to speak directly with your spouse to determine where you both stand. This helps reduce the added strain that could lead to hostility in a courtroom. The mediator will help build towards a customized agreement that both sides can be happy with.
Choose a healthier divorce process
Mediation Can Help Retain Positive Parent/Children Relationships
Divorce rarely only affects the two parties involved. When you also have children, that can make this process that much more sensitive. You have to work hard to keep from bringing any tension or high feelings of resentment home. In court litigation, tension can quickly build between spouses, which ultimately hurts kids the most. They may not understand the situation fully, but they can pick up on those emotions. This could hurt their relationship with one or both parents.
Respectful communication is key in mediation. The goal is to remain as calm and straightforward as possible to be able to effectively communicate about all parenting issues. At Arizona Divorce, we help you formulate your parenting plan. This plan involves all aspects of your children’s lives, including custody scheduling, support, and legal and financial decisions. Having the ability to make these decisions yourself alleviates much of the stress that would be experienced in the courtroom. This allows you to focus on what is truly in the best interest of your kids. This also helps aid in a better co-parenting relationship moving forward.
