Amicably Resolving Divorces in Scottsdale and Mesa
Divorce can be stressful, and many people wish to streamline and simplify the process by using Mediation. Divorce mediation is one option for pursuing a negotiated settlement without going to trial.
I'm Kyle Scoresby, an experienced divorce mediation lawyer, and my staff and I at Scoresby Family Law have helped many clients explore their divorce settlement options. Contact my office in Mesa to schedule a consultation to learn more.
Advising and Representing You in Mediation
If you and your spouse are committed to resolving your divorce amicably but need help coming to agreements about things like child custody (legal decision making) and parenting time, a child support arrangement, or the issues involved in property division and alimony, divorce mediation may be helpful.
A mediator is a neutral person — generally an attorney or someone else familiar with family law — who helps divorcing spouses identify and resolve issues.
Protect Your Interests by Speaking With an Attorney Prior to Mediation
Some people are interested in going into mediation without their own lawyers. While this may be a good option in some cases, people can also be taken advantage of in mediation if they don't have personal advocates to keep them informed about their rights.
Whether or not you want a lawyer to accompany you to mediation, you should definitely consult one about thoroughly investigating and documenting your and your spouse's financial and personal circumstances before agreeing on a settlement.
Evaluating All of Your Divorce Settlement Options
Mediation is not the only way to achieve a settlement in a divorce case. Often, when each spouse is represented by a lawyer and both sides are committed to working toward a resolution in good faith, a settlement can be reached without the involvement of a mediator.When mediation and other settlement efforts fail, I can provide you with experienced and aggressive attorney representation at trial.
