Same-Sex Divorce Mediation

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?

Is divorce mediation the best way to go about it?

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.
