What Our Clients Are Saying

We Appreciated Your Ability to Keep the Process Calm and Peaceful

I wanted to say thank you for helping us through the divorce process. As you already know it’s a very stressful time with emotions running high. You are very skilled at what you do and we appreciated your ability to keep the process calm and peaceful as possible. You have a special ability to help both parties understand the opposing point of views to allow for an amicable agreement. Take care and have a wonderful 2021.


Mara Made our Dissolution Easy

Mara made our Dissolution easy to work through. She helped us talk through the important issues to consider and cut through the red tape of the court.

Mediation is a much less expensive and time saving route, if you generally agree on the Dissolution, and plan to go through the process as amicably as possible.


You Helped to Make an Extremely Painful Process Bearable

Thanks so much for your professionalism and patience. You helped to make an extremely painful process bearable.

I recommend anyone going through divorce to at least talk with Mara before an attorney.
Thanks again!


We Have a Friendship That is a Massive Gift to Us

Not an ideal situation for sure, getting divorced with two kids after 18 years of marriage. However, because of Mara at Affordable Mediation we got through the process with very low conflict and great collaboration. It’s been almost two years now and we have a friendship that is a massive gift to us, our kids and our family unit. We sit with each other at the kids activities and can still have family dinners and everything. Thank you!


Her Help Made the Process Very Easy

I want to thank Mara for her mediation assistance and preparation of all the necessary paperwork. Her help made the process very easy to deal with. She provided clear and concise information throughout the process.


Meeting with Mara Made this Whole Experience Easier

Meeting with Mara made this whole experience easier. She provided us with all the paperwork and explained everything carefully both verbally and in writing. I felt supported and informed, and appreciate her knowledge. She remained very neutral and always included both of us in all communication.


You will Save Thousands

This is by far the most affordable, simple, and legal way to start the divorce process with the AZ court system. Based on Mara’s vast knowledge of the legal system, it was quite easy for all of the assets to be properly and fairly allocated between my spouse and I. For those individuals seeking an amicable and neutral divorce, this is the best way to proceed in the state of Arizona. You will save thousands of dollars by going this route.


You are Wonderful!

Mara, thank you for sending the Consent Decree with the court number on it. You are wonderful. You have made this process so easy with step by step instructions as well as a certain amount of ‘hand holding’. T. and I filled in the missing data yesterday and made sure we were both ok with how everything was listed. Now we can get everything notarized and be ready for our [Consent Decree hearing] date. I want to thank you for being available for post meeting questions. THANK YOU. I will let you know when everything is done next month just to put final closure on us.


Guidance and Expertise that We Needed

Thank you again so much for all you have done for us. You have given us the guidance and expertise that we needed to feel confident that we are thoroughly and effectively completing this process. We truly appreciate you.


I’m Grateful that I Found You

Thanks for all you have done for K, our kids and our family. I feel the mediation process worked well for us…although we had some emotional and heated exchanges. As you stated, inside your office was the time and place to get all that out so we can move forward.… I feel we have gone through the process with respect and fairness, which in the end will positively impact our ability to co-parent our family at a high-level. I am grateful that I found you.


You’re a Blessing
