    In Arizona if you are getting divorce you do not necessarily need to go to court.  There are options such as mediation and arbitration.  These alternatives are not only less expensive but often they can be done in much less time.  You may also have all of details worked out, therefore you would be able to get an uncontested divorce.
  • Mediation to solve real estate disputes - Arizona

    Its time has come but mediation in Arizona is making its way into solving real estate conflict.  There is now a mediation clause that is standard in every Arizona Association or Realtors Contract.  I think this is a better first step for clients rather than trying to slug it out in court.  The benefits of mediation would seem to out weigh going to court.  For one going to court is expensive and it can take a long time.  Litigation can take years, while mediation can be completed in a day.  The cost of mediation is less as well.  Litigation can run in the tens of thousands of dollars quickly.  Most mediators charge between $200 - $300 per hour.  If you can get your dispute settled in a day, I think you can do the math.

    The only hitch to trying to use a mediatoris that if one party wont participate you may need to seek other methods to settle your dispute like arbitration or litigation.

    Going to court to resolve a dispute can not only be draining on your wallet but also on your emotional bank account.  If you are having a conflict with a real estate transaction, you may want to call to a mediator first befor an lawyer.  Mediation can not only resolve issues faster but it can save you on your wallet as well.  Mediation is a way to resolve conflict in an efficient manner.  In mediation both sides work together rather than against each other.

    Mediation is one of the fastest growing alternatives to going to court.  Some courts even require that parties go to mediation before litigation.
