Although divorce is usually sad, with mediation it isn’t financially and emotionally devastating.
During your free consultation, our Mediator will answer your questions and explain how our time-tested mediation and court document preparation services work.
Every situation is different. That’s why our Mediator will give you a written cost estimate after learning about your particular situation and determining which of our Low Cost programs best serves your needs.
It’s usually best for both you and your spouse to get information about our services at the same time.
Our mediator will answer your questions, make sure he understands your situation, and because everyone’s circumstances are different give you a written time and cost estimate.

Yes, it never too late to avoid the hostility, stress, and substantial cost involved in using separate adversarial lawyers and court system.
Not a problem. Under Arizona law, only one spouse must have resided here for 90 days or more, and we can mediate your situation by email, teleconference, and/or videoconference.
With us, employing an independent attorney is an option but not a requirement. In fact, we provide all of our clients with a list of attorneys who are expert in divorce matters, do not charge any upfront retainer fees, and act as consultants rather than combatants.
Today same-sex married couples have the same legal rights and responsibilities as heterosexual couples. This means that Arizona’s community property laws apply to same-sex divorce – for dividing property, allocating responsibility for debts, devising a parenting plan for minor children, and determining any spousal maintenance (“alimony”) support and/or child support amounts.
Once the decision to divorce has been made, same-sex couples must decide how to go about it. Do they hire separate lawyers? Can they afford the substantial fees charged by lawyers? Do they have the fortitude to battle things out for months if not years? Can they cope with the hostility and stress generated by adversarial court-based tactics and procedures? If there are any minor children, what way to divorce is in their best interest?
See how our divorce mediation process infused with law and psychology saves you time, money, and stress.
Our services cost a small fraction of using lawyers regardless your circumstances. And everything will be finalized in much less time than the eight to fifteen months typical when using lawyers in the court-based system.
We incorporate everything you decided during mediation in a personalized and legally-binding settlement agreement and all required court documents. You keep control, you won’t surrender it lawyers and a judge, and will never have to go to court.
We are adept at reducing the anger and sadness that causes the hostility and stress common to divorce. If minor children are involved, reduced parental hostility and stress will save them from the intensified emotions generated by oppositional lawyers.
Divorce mediation is a process in which divorcing couples hire a professional and impartial mediator to help them negotiate and communicate effectively, explore different options and alternative for settlement, and understand the legal, financial, tax and other information relevant to their situation. The mediator addresses the divorcing couples’ particular concerns and goals about their property, debts, and any support and parenting matters. Everything in mediation occurs privately, not open to the public as with court-based proceedings.
When the divorcing couple has decided the details of everything, the mediator incorporates these decisions in a personalized and legally-binding settlement agreement and prepares all requited court documents. Couples who mediate their divorce always stay in control instead of surrendering it to lawyers and a judge, and never have to go to court.
Mediation costs a small fraction of the fees charged by lawyers and takes much less time than court-based proceedings. A professional mediator, especially one with backgrounds in law and psychology, helps divorcing couples reduce the anger, sadness and other frequently intense emotions common to divorce. And, if there are minor children, reduced parental hostility and stress boosts their sense of security, safety and stability. Divorce with lawyers, however, will more than likely intensify these emotions.
And so, although divorce is usually sad, with mediation it isn’t financially and emotionally devastating.
The professionalism, organization, ability to completely explain and make aware of all the options possible were kindly delivered by Oliver. I would not look anywhere else for a better mediator

Oliver and his staff made this difficult time in our lives so much easier. The approach to divorce was handled with concern for our emotional, as well as financial, well-being. We both came out feeling as though we were treated fairly and given sound advice for going forward.

I’m Barry Brooks and I confess I have not worked with Oliver Ross and his team at Out of Court Solutions. But the reason I’m writing is I have had several of my friends do so and have had terrific resolutions for all parties involved. No hostility often typically found with divorce attorneys. And they feel that they saved themselves a lot of aggravation, time as well as money. Very highly recommended!
