More on how it works

Avoid Court Battles

Court-litigated divorce can be ugly, long, expensive, and hurtful. However, there is a less expensive, more convenient and civil way to go through the divorce process. Our experts here at The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation are here to help you through this difficult time by making the divorce process as easy as possible.

Mediation is a process whereby one of our experts comes alongside as an independent third party to help facilitate various facets of the divorce. We can help with divorce and child custody mediations, child support and post-divorce modifications, legal separation mediation, and document preparation. No matter where you are in the divorce, our experts can help you settle it with little stress.

Save Money With Mediation

Mediation is much more cost-effective than a traditional court-litigated divorce. In the Phoenix area, Maricopa County, divorce lawyers are asking for $18,000 per spouse on average – in addition to the large retainer that some require. Mediation fees are a fraction of the cost, saving you up to 80-90%. Also, instead of billing you in 15 minute increments, our mediation fees are all-inclusive to save you even more.

Discover the Convenient Mediation Process

Mediation can settle your case over the course of several short sessions, whereas court-litigated cases can take over a year to settle. Court dates can be put out months into the future, leaving you in limbo while you wait. Our experts are here to help you handle this quickly, confidentially, and conveniently. The Surprise office of The Aurit Center for Divorce Mediation is also convenient to get to, just off of Bell and Reems Road near Adelante Healthcare Center.

Everyone’s a Winner

Our mediation team only creates “win-win” agreements with no one feeling they have “lost”. Every divorce is different, so our team creates fair solutions with no “losers” involved. Normally, courts lack the time and resources needed to help you find a custom solution that fits your specific needs.

Confidential, Respectful Atmosphere

Our experts are here to keep this difficult situation confidential. No one outside the parties involved need to know about this deeply difficult, personal situation. According to Arizona divorce law, a court-litigated divorce is public record, but mediation is not. Whatever happens in mediation stays in mediation.

Court-litigated divorces are often public and disrespectful. This type of trauma can be difficult for a young person to handle emotionally, and it may leave lifelong scars. We keep the atmosphere of our litigations respectful, which can be one of the best advantages of all. If there are children involved, parents are the example. What better example to set for them than one of mutual respect during a conflict? A peaceful, conflict-resolving atmosphere can keep relationships intact.



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.

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.
