WHAT IS A DIVORCE MEDIATOR?

A divorce mediator negotiates between two parties going through the divorce process when both parties are incapable of agreeing to terms. It is a way of resolving issues without the need to go to court and the process is cost effective. Put simply, divorce mediators are there to help you control the terms of your divorce. High Desert Family Law Group makes this process private, easy, and affordable for all.

TRADITIONAL DIVORCE VS. DIVORCE MEDIATION IN SCOTTSDALE

Traditional divorce costs can cost up to and sometimes more than $40,000 yet when you choose the services of High Desert Law Group there is far less than that. We work with clients to provide affordable services with fixed fees.

DIVORCE MEDIATION TAKES LESS TIME WITH LOWER CONFLICT

Many divorce conflicts are not necessary. There is seldom a need to string the process out through the court system, sometimes taking up to two years before you have a resolution. Mediation reduces this time to usually a maximum of four months as the system of negotiation is smoother and the parties involved oversee the timeline to resolve outstanding issues, not the court system.

DIVORCE MEDIATION IS BETTER FOR YOUR CHILDREN

The health of your child or children are always of paramount importance. Nonetheless, a child or children can suffer great stress through the divorce process. Nut in mediation, a parenting plan can be worked out as well as any outstanding issues regarding a child or children. This can help both parties maintain their relationship with their child or children.

DIVORCE MEDIATION IS PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL

It goes without saying family matters should be highly confidential. With mediation, the process will never be public record. Arizona law protects confidentiality when you choose divorce mediation. Only the parenting plan and the final decree will be a matter for public record.
