What Is Mediation in Scottsdale?
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution, meaning it is an alternative to a trial. It is a meeting between you, your spouse, your attorneys (if desired) and a mediator. A mediator is an unbiased third party, typically someone who is trained in conflict resolution, such as an attorney or retired judge. The mediator does not give advice or represent either party. They do not have the power to create a judgment at the end of the mediation. The mediator is simply there to facilitate compromises and assist with a settlement agreement.
Mediation has many advantages over a traditional trial, including:
- Less expensive than a divorce trial
- A faster and easier legal process
- You remain in control of the outcome
- The settlement agreement is private
- Preserves a positive relationship with your former spouse
- Reduces tension and emotional stress for children
Scottsdale mediation can be a great way to settle conflicts that you have with your spouse. You can both work together, with help from a mediator, to create the terms of your divorce or legal separation. It can allow you and your spouse to make important decisions, such as property division, child custody and support orders. Successful mediation can allow your family to avoid the cost, time and emotional toll of a divorce trial in Arizona. A trial is still an option, however, if either party is not satisfied with mediation.
How Can a Mediation Lawyer in Scottsdale Help?
The odds of mediation being successful are increased by hiring an attorney to help you with this process. Your lawyer will ensure the protection of your rights throughout mediation. Your attorney can give you advice about what to expect during mediation, what goals to set for your divorce settlement, how to prepare for your meeting, and what to say and what not to say during this process. A divorce lawyer can also help you and your spouse come up with creative solutions.
Your lawyer can take care of the legal side of mediation, such as complicated paperwork and legally binding agreements, while you focus on your family. If mediation is unsuccessful, your lawyer can help you with another form of alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration. Otherwise, your lawyer can represent you during a divorce trial in Maricopa County.
