In traditional mediation, a single provider moves between the parties assisting them in reaching agreements and compromises. Often mediators require each party to be represented which can make it a very costly approach.
At Arizona Family Law Ranch, we provide a collaborative form of mediation where a mediator (who is an experienced family law attorney) and a communication coach (who is a trained therapist) facilitate the discussion with the goal of coming to court orders that both parties feel best serve the family in the short and long term.
While you may choose to consult counsel, no attorney's are required. Any agreements will be drafted so you can file them directly with the court.
A communication coach as part of the process helps parties communicate cleary without getting stuck in the same old patterns. The ultimate goal where children are involved, is the ability to effectively coparent and demonstrate a united front.
Collaborative Mediation is Flat Rate and Financing is Available:
While family law lawyers are not the most popular breed, horses might seem like a stretch for mediation.
Horses are effective facilitators because their mirror neurons reflect a client’s inner world back to them accurately providing real time, actionable feedback. Our programs avoid pitfalls of traditional litigation for represented and self represented litigants seeking family law mediation.
You will learn about the family law mediation program, receive a list of the required documents needed, and you will receive an appointment time to meet one one-on-one with our communication coach.
Our communication coach will meet with you to understand your goals, priorities, and any considerations related to a positive mediation experience. These meetings are one on one without the other party present so you can be free to express any concerns that can impact resolution.
On the day of the mediation, you will arrive on the ranch and be greeted by your equine coach. After you get to know your horse and feel ready, you will meet with our team at the ranch to begin the mediation process. Your horse will stay in attendance should you need a break. All agreements will be documented and ready to file with the court.
