Mediation Downloads

Thank you again for your interest in mediation and working together in trying to reach some collaborative and mutually comfortable agreements for your family. Mediation costs typically average $7,800 (compared to $40,000+ with attorneys), but can be more depending on your particular financial situation. Mediation sessions can be held virtually or in-person, include meetings with your Mediator and Coach, last two hours and are billed hourly at time of service at $325/hour.  All other services are billed as a flat fee.

For more complex financial estates, we offer a collaborative mediation team through our Modern Mediation division, with financial, retirement, trust professionals and a divorce/co-parenting coach. Fees for this Modern Mediation divorce process start at $17,500.

Court filing fees, E-notarization, and courier fees are an additional $1400 for our completely virtual document signing and court filing process.

Download Your Homework Documents

The forms below (downloads) are for you to review and fill out prior to our first mediation session. They are fillable online – some are in Excel format and some in Word. So, try to open each up in the correct program. They are not designed to be printed out and filled in by hand.

These include:

  1. An Asset.Debt spreadsheet (can be Completed jointly)
  2. A Budget spreadsheet (Completed individually with estimates of costs for separate households)
  3. The spousal maintenance statute (For Review)

Additionally, if you have minor children:

  1. The Model Parenting Time Plan issued by the Superior Court (For Review)
  2. A weekly parenting schedule worksheet (can be Completed jointly)
  3. A holiday schedule worksheet (can be Completed jointly)

Please email us the completed forms prior to your session to mara@affordablemediationaz.com

Although it is not critical if you are unable to complete everything in advance, it is very helpful to try to fill in as much as possible on the Asset.Debt sheet and the monthly Budgets even if you only put in estimated costs and expenses. Also, please email the intake sheets as soon as possible.
