We will be with you every step of the divorce process. We’re always here to answer your questions along the way. We make it our priority to meet your individual needs. Our goal is to ensure a smooth and simple process for our clients.
Affordable All-Inclusive Flat Fees
We don’t require any retainer or bill “by the hour” like Arizona attorneys, or other mediators. We believe this approach contributes to a broken family law system where professionals financially gain from escalation of conflict that causes cases to drag on. Our flat fees include all emails, phone calls, and every moment spent on your case. That gives spouses the predictability of fees and financial stability they need.
Peace of Mind
Our clients often tell us how relieved they feel after their free consultation at The Aurit Center. Beginning the divorce process can be filled with nervousness, uncertainty, and complicated emotions. We acknowledge the difficultly of divorce. We are here to guide you through divorce mediation and support you through this legal, financial, and emotional transition in your lives.
The Entire Divorce Process, Simplified
From beginning to end — Petition filing to Final Consent Decree — we handle your divorce so that you never set foot in a courtroom.
We provide a simple, affordable, less stressful divorce alternative to litigation that keeps you in control of your own future and allows you to personalize your own divorce terms.
Mediation vs Litigation
Divorce Mediation. It’s All We Do.
The Aurit Center For Divorce Mediation is the leading family mediation firm in Arizona. We don’t do anything else.
We help spouses settle their divorce out of court in family law mediation. This singular focus means we are experts at guiding people to reach fair and personalized divorce agreements without ever going to court.
Local and Personal
We take great care in how we approach our clients. We communicate often and directly, accommodate busy schedules, and always strive to meet your needs.
We are headquartered in Scottsdale, Arizona, with locations throughout the Phoenix area, including Phoenix, Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Glendale, Surprise, and Peoria.
To help you avoid the high costs and unpredictability of ongoing legal fees associated with litigation.
To create a respectful, solutions-based divorce process without fighting instead of a “divorce war” that hurts families.
To keep you in control of the outcome of the issues rather than having a judge or jury decide your future for you.
To help spouses reach fair, thoughtful, personalized agreements that meet everyone’s needs so that there are no losers.
To provide you with caring, responsive and convenient service throughout your mediation process.
To help consider all divorce issues and options so that your agreements are clear, comprehensive, and will always be honored.
We believe that spouses and parents should stay in control of their own future. Mediation can empower people to make their own informed decisions.
We believe in working with integrity, always. We encourage openness and honesty. We believe in treating everyone with respect.
We believe in helping clients find “creative solutions.” Arizona law is a foundation to make decisions, but we believe adults can create their own custom agreements that meet their family’s needs.
What happens in mediation, stays in mediation. We believe in your rights to privacy and Arizona law protects mediation confidentiality.
We believe that divorce and parenting issues can be resolved peacefully in mediation, without escalation of conflict in court. If there is a willingness to “show up” to mediation, there is an extremely high probability of full settlement.
