In mediation, an unbiased third party represents both parties to help facilitate a settlement out of court. A successful mediation will often mitigate both the time and legal expenses associated with litigation. With the help of an impartial mediator, spouses can express their wishes and concerns to the mediator alone, who can speak with the other spouse alone. The mediator can then bring both spouses together to encourage them to discuss their issues reasonably and seek to reach a fair result to all parties involved.
Mediation is a non-binding process, which means that no matter the outcome of any mediation, the result does not affect any family court proceedings. If mediation proves to be successful, then the terms spouses and family members agree upon can be presented to the court for approval as part of a divorce settlement. If mediation is not successful, a court will be determining the results of divorce or custody proceedings and the requirement that one parent or spouse must pay the other spouse child or spousal support payments.
Many mediators are not licensed as attorneys in Arizona. This can present some serious problems as most family and divorce law cases involve complex legal issues including custody, parenting time, child support, property and asset division, etc. At The Valley Law Group all of our mediators are qualified attorneys licensed within the state of Arizona. Rest assured knowing that you have a mediator who can help navigate the complexities of Arizona law.
