Divorce or other family law cases can be expensive and time-consuming. An experienced divorce attorney should be able to provide you with some certainty as to the likely outcome of your case. If the divorce lawyer knows the likely outcome of your case, why do so many people spend tens of thousands of dollars on attorneys? The answer is simple: they have not considered using an experienced Arizona divorce mediator. The lead divorce attorney at Arizona Estate Planning Attorneys, PC has been the mediator on numerous cases and has experience litigating hundreds of divorce and family law cases over his more than twenty years of experience. He has successfully mediated over 95% of all of the people who have used his mediation services. To understand why mediating your case is beneficial, you should understand the Arizona divorce process you will avoid if you successfully mediate your case with Arizona divorce attorney Chris Hildebrand. If you do settle your case, you will attend several hearings like a Temporary Orders Hearing, a Resolution Management Conference, and a final divorce Trial. Every case is different, so the amount you spend on attorneys fees will vary upon your particular circumstances. However, it is typical for an experienced attorney to spend three to four hour preparing for every hour scheduled for these hearings. A Temporary Orders Hearing can, therefore, cost you upwards of $5,000.00. A day of Trial can cost you upwards of $15,000.00 or more. A four-hour mediation, on the other hand, is less than $2,000.00. With a success rate of 95% full settlements reached with Arizona mediator, Chris Hildebrand, the savings are significant. You also save a significant amount of money if you settle some, but not all, of your issues. Narrowing down of the issues significantly reduces the time your attorney needs to spend on your case.
