Phoenix, Arizona, Divorce Mediation Attorneys

More and more parties are considering the process of mediation. In mediation, the parties mutually select an experienced neutral third party to assist them with the goal of reaching a full agreement. The mediator does not render a decision but rather facilitates an open forum so that the parties are able to freely discuss their goals and objectives. Neither party will be forced to accept an agreement, and the agreements reached will only be binding to the extent the parties mutually agree.

Are you interested in learning if mediation is right for you? Call DeShon Laraye Pullen PLC at 602-626-9552 or 800-409-0262. You may also email us and someone will be in touch with you promptly.

Child Custody, Legal Decision-Making And Parenting Time

Mediation and other alternative dispute resolution methods are particularly well suited for resolving child custody and visitation.

In this way, mediation can create solutions that are customized and that accommodate the needs of all parties.
