Understanding Maricopa County Mediators — Attorney Providing Trusted Advice
In mediation, a mediator acts as a neutral third party, helping you and your spouse reach an agreement. Two types of mediation are primarily used in family matters in Arizona:
Alternative dispute resolution (ADR): At the beginning of your case, a judge will ask you if you would like to pursue ADR. It can be months before a trial date, and ADR can provide you with a quicker path toward resolution in your divorce. This type of mediation usually takes half a day, based upon the referral from the judge.
Private mediation: Hiring your own private mediator can be more expensive but can allow you to take control of the decisions made in your divorce. In mediation, we frequently work with mediators who are well qualified in those specific areas of concern. Your mediator can help you and your spouse work together to reach an agreement and avoid the stress of a trial.
Our attorney will listen to your concerns and goals to help you determine if mediation is right for you. He can guide you through the mediation process and work to reach a favorable resolution for you and your family.
