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. Our services are pay-as-you go. All mediation sessions are charged at $325/hour due 72 hours in advance of each session. Drafting of documents are additional flat fees: (1) $650.00 for initial neutral court filing documents (does not include court filing fees) and (2) a range of $3,500.00-$6,500.00+ for Decree documents, 1 set of revisions, email/text correspondence and finalization of your case. Additional revisions or mediation sessions will be charged at $325.00 per hour.

Average mediation costs typically range from $5,000 – $7,500+ for our services, but depends on your situation.

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 intake sheet (Completed individually)
  2. An Asset.Debt spreadsheet (can be Completed jointly)
  3. A Budget spreadsheet (Completed individually with estimates of costs for separate households)
  4. 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.

We are offering in-person mediations with all our mediators at our Phoenix office. West Valley and East Valley office sessions are still video meetings at this time.
