The Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Affordable Client-Friendly Flat Fees
Less Stress on Your Wallet
In Tucson, the divorce process is far from cheap. This possible financial strain adds a lot of tension to an already tense situation. In Arizona, attorney retainers can start at anywhere from $5,000-$15,000. If you are dealing with a moderately-contested case, this number can jump to $15,000-$18,000. This is a lot of money to spend with no guarantee you’ll even see the results that you want.
At Arizona Divorce, our mediation services are a fraction of what you’d spend in a court proceeding. We provide a clear flat fee for divorce mediation. This fee covers everything from start to finish. When you work with us, you’ll never have to deal with a surprise fee or charge.
Private and Confidential
Personalized Divorce Terms
In a courtroom setting, you can hope that your terms will be honored and met. Since the final decision is up to the judge, there is no guarantee. You also have to rely on your attorney’s ability to communicate for you, both to the judge as well as the other legal representative. This can create instances of miscommunication. In a tense courtroom, this can lead to an additional conflict that turns simple solutions to problems into something more complicated and expensive. There is no real sense of control when it comes to presenting and achieving your terms of the divorce.
Mediation allows you to retain control of the situation. There is no risk of miscommunications that could lead to tension and a breakdown of communication. This method has proven successful, even for high-conflict couples. The approach of mediation is focused on problem-solving that begins with establishing common ground. When both parties have a place to start from, they can better achieve a mutual agreement that works.
Less Time, Lower Conflict
Staying Out of the Courtroom
The courtroom can bring a lot of tension, even before your first day in court. You’ll have to find legal representation. Most attorneys charge by the hour, making you hyperaware of how much money you are losing each time you need to contact them or appear in court. This can create a higher level of stress and tension that makes it harder to work with your spouse. There is also the knowledge that decisions will be made by a judge who may not fully understand your unique situation. Uncertainty and financial strain can build until there is escalated fighting during the process. This can slow the process down, costing you more financially and emotionally.
In mediation, the initial stress factor can be much lower. You’ll have a clear understanding of the cost of the process, providing better peace of mind in the financial aspect. You’ll also know that no one else is going to be making your decisions for you. A mediator will provide neutral guidance as you and your spouse work through your issues and settle on aspects such as asset and debt division, child custody, and support. The ability to customize agreements leads to higher rates of satisfaction in a fraction of the time it would take in the courtroom.
Choose a healthier divorce process
Less Stress on Children
Divorce can be a confusing time for children regardless of their age. You want to do what is best for your children, but that goal can get muddled in a courtroom setting. In a courtroom, you have to plea your side to a judge who will make the final decision on custody, child support, and other important factors. This can lead to animosity between the parents that can be felt at home. This tension can hurt the relationship with one or both parents.
Mediation allows you to make those important decisions yourself. The goal is to communicate with a level of respect and understanding that allows you to keep the focus on doing what is best for your children. This allows for customizable agreements that fit the needs of your entire family. By working through this process together, you have a better chance of maintaining a working co-parenting relationship.
