So what should you expect during Arizona divorce mediation? Here are the general steps in the process:
- Schedule a free, no-pressure consultation with a qualified Maricopa County divorce lawyer. This will allow you to ask questions, review your options, and potentially schedule the mediation.
- Gather the necessary information. Before the mediation, it is best if you gather information about debt, assets, and property and review the documentation regarding the mediation itself.
- Attend the mediation meeting(s). The mediation may span several sessions or be completed during the first meeting. At each session, you and your spouse will work through issues, such as custody, and come to an agreement.
- Sign the mediation agreement. Once you both have agreed on the terms, everything will be written up for both of you to sign. The mediation agreement is binding when you both have signed it.
- Submit paperwork to the court. After mediation, there will be several rounds of signed paperwork that must be submitted to and approved by the court before the divorce is final.
