Family Law Mediation in Scottsdale

Why Mediation?

Mediation can be a means of avoiding the hassle, heartache, and financial burden of litigation. Experts estimate that mediation has a 80-90% success rate.

How it works:

A Mediator can help you and your spouse, former spouse, and/or co-parent meet in an environment that is designed to foster meaningful negotiations and calm collaboration towards an amicable resolution for your Arizona divorce or family law matter without ever setting foot in a courtroom.

A mediator is an independent, neutral, third-party hired to facilitate negotiations between the parties in a legal dispute.  The mediator does not represent either party individually, but rather assists both parties by crafting solutions and detailed agreements that you might possibly not be able to achieve in a Courtroom.  In mediation you have a voice as to the final outcome, rather than a Judge making that determination for you.

Our Approach to Divorce and Family Law Mediation

A Future-Oriented Approach to Divorce and Family Law

While our mediation clients are obviously going through a tough, often complex divorce or family law case, many feel a great deal of anxiety and stress while experiencing these major life changes and making big decisions.
We’ve always emphasized the importance of keeping a future-oriented mindset to guide them through these difficult times and feelings of uncertainty.
We always ask our clients “What do you want? What does the future look like?” so that we can get you there.  The future is bright—even if you can’t see it right now.
While facilitating negotiations between both parties, our Mediators aim to keep each party focused on the future of their family as they work toward amicable resolutions suitable for everyone involved and in the best interests of the children.

Tailor-Made Agreements to Resolve Your Divorce and Family Law Disputes

Using mediation for your divorce or family law matter, as an alternative to litigating in court, will allow you more control over what’s included in your final orders or divorce decree.  It will also afford you the flexibility of making agreements on issues that a judge would not have the authority to consider.
Every family is different; therefore, every family will have different needs when it comes to divorce and family law.  No matter the subject matter or the complexity of the issues at hand, your family deserves final orders that are tailor-made for your needs.
Some of those issues may include:

  • Allocation of assets and debts in high asset/high net worth cases
  • The division of multiple businesses
  • Determination of alimony or spousal support
  • Outlining child custody, or legal decision-making agreements
  • Creating a parenting plan and parenting time schedule
  • Determining child support

Here at Owens & Perkins, our highly-skilled and experienced mediators are equipped to navigate even the most complex divorces or family law matters and will work directly with you and the other party to create a collaborative, detailed decree or final orders that meet your family’s needs.

Mediation as an Alternative Solution to Divorce in Arizona

Couples typically don’t get married with the intention of divorcing—they marry thinking they will spend the rest of their lives together!
Down the road, unfortunately, many couples also realize that they’ve grown apart or that their lifestyles are no longer a good match.
For many it’s not that they’ve stopped caring or don’t believe their spouse to be a great parent and role model to their children—only that they want something different.
In these cases, where communication still exists between the parties, mediation can be a very beneficial tool in getting through the divorce process with your finances and emotional well-being still intact, all while saving time and money by avoiding the courtroom. That is where Owens & Perkins, Attorneys at Law can help.
