LOWER CONFLICT

Avoid the courtroom completely

Getting a divorce does not require engaging in war. Divorce mediation offers a positive alternative to fighting it out through aggressive divorce lawyers who charge massive legal fees.

In divorce mediation, you—not a judge—control your divorce terms, empowering you in every step. Our neutral mediators guide a respectful process so you can reach your best agreements on all issues of divorce, including:

  • Property Division
  • Spousal Maintenance
  • Child Support and Custody
  • Parenting Time
  • Legal Decision-Making Authority

ULTIMATE FLEXIBILITY

Mediate when and where you prefer

You set the pace you and your family need. The average case takes only 2 to 4 months from our initial meeting to the final decree.

We can complete your entire process by meeting you online or in-person in one of our convenient offices around the Valley.

THE ADVANTAGES OF MEDIATION

Mediation is healthier for you

Litigation can be an all-consuming, confrontational process that increases stress and diminishes your and your family’s physical and mental health and overall well-being.

Our mediators guide you through our creative, focused, and thoughtful problem-solving approach to reach all agreements. Since mediation lowers conflict, it reduces stress for you and your family.

Costs much less

Mediation is cost-effective: 80% to 90% less expensive than litigation. Arizona attorneys typically charge an initial retainer of $5,000 to $15,000, and an average court case can cost more than $40,000.

At the Aurit Center, we never charge a retainer or bill by the hour. We provide affordable, all-inclusive, flat fees that keep you in control of your costs.

More about our pricing

Finishes faster

Most of our clients complete their mediation process within 2 to 4 months. That’s much sooner than the average litigated divorce, which can take anywhere from 10 months to 2 years—or more.

Instead of a long, emotionally- and financially-draining litigated divorce process, our efficient, focused approach creates relief for you and your family.

Results in better post-agreement compliance

Couples who complete their process in divorce mediation are more likely to comply with the terms of their divorce. You maintain control as we help you customize your agreement to meet your family’s specific needs through a more respectful divorce process. That results in more respect for the final terms, compared to a judge-ordered divorce where parents lose all control of the outcome.

Maintains your privacy and confidentiality

What happens in mediation stays in mediation, which can be a comforting thought when personal details are being revealed. Arizona law guarantees that anything said during mediation is private and confidential. In litigation, anything said or written is a matter of public record which anyone can access.

Keeps you in control of your terms

In mediation, you stay in control of your future. Your mediator guides you in reaching an agreement by objectively listening and incorporating as much as possible of what is important to each of you.

Courts lack the time and resources to consider or understand your needs thoughtfully. Litigating means giving control to a judge who will make all decisions based on the limited information they receive from attorneys.

And it’s better for your children

Legal battles of any magnitude harm children. Child specialists agree that continued fighting during and after divorce can severely damage child development and cause long-term emotional and psychological harm.

Mediation puts your kids first by protecting their physical and mental health and overall well-being. Our mediators, who specialize in the needs of children during divorce, set you up for the healthiest co-parenting relationship possible.

Protects your child’s emotional health

Research shows that children whose parents cooperate during and after divorce are more resilient and maintain normal long-term emotional well-being. Continued fighting between their parents during and after the divorce is a top reason for children’s severe long-term emotional problems around their parents’ divorce.

Produces healthier co-parenting relationships

By reducing conflict and creating a plan, mediation helps parents adjust to co-parenting after divorce. The better the parents adjust, the better the kids adjust.

Enables better relationships with children

Research shows that parents who resolve their divorce through mediation have more meaningful long-term relationships with their children.
