The benefits of divorce mediation have been making it a more popular choice for people who have decided to pursue divorce for the last decade at least. Johnson Mediation is proud to be at the forefront of a movement that is designed to make the unfortunate reality of divorce easier and less stressful.
Clients who have worked with us will very likely tell you that their experience with divorce was much less stressful than they would have thought it would be. That is because we are committed to treating our clients with respect, dignity, and empathy and providing them with the information they need to navigate the process. We know that divorce is extremely hard. It is among the most painful and stressful experiences we can go through. Getting through a divorce intact requires the presence of people who will support you, provide a listening ear, and remind you that time really does help to heal all wounds. Of course, in the midst of a divorce, those things are really hard to remember.
Benefits Of Divorce Mediation
A good divorce mediator will provide similar kinds of support, though it will be presented in the context of accurate information, knowledge of Minnesota divorce law, and an honest appraisal of the impact that the decisions you and your divorcing spouse make will have on all who are affected by your divorce. Strong divorce mediation involves a good balance between listening to the divorcing couple and providing information to empower you to make informed choices.
This process often helps the divorcing couple see areas of disagreement and conflict in a new light. Instead of focusing on the many differences that drove you to divorce, you can begin to see ways of building bridges, and compromising, and remembering that the individual they are divorcing is still a person. The relationship may not be able to be salvaged but recognizing the humanity of the person you married does a lot to liberate you from the conflict that led to this choice. Making the decision to get divorced and following through with it without anger and resentment means you have a much better chance of moving on and healing sooner.
Is Divorce Mediation Right For Me?
Divorce mediation is also a much less expensive option for divorcing couples than hiring attorneys to represent you in court. The courts also recognize the practicality of divorce mediation; in recent years, many Minnesota courts require an attempt at mediation before accepting a divorce case.
