Is Divorce Mediation Right For You?
The decision to proceed with a divorce is difficult for many — if not most — couples. The divorce process can also be difficult, with the potential for more fighting and stress.
Consider an alternative process to arriving at a divorce decree: mediation. In mediation, you and your spouse will work with a neutral third party who facilitates the process.
To learn if mediation is appropriate for you and your specific situation, call Donaldson Stewart, P.C., today at 480-792-9770 and arrange a free initial consultation.
How Does Mediation Work?
The parties select a neutral third-party mediator. The mediator does not make decisions regarding the divorce issues — he or she facilitates a discussion where both parties discuss their goals. The divorce agreement needs to be agreed upon by both parties. It will include important decisions regarding the division of assets and obligations, the care and custody of your children, how much child support you will receive or pay, and how much spousal support you will receive or pay.
