The most common reason to seek help after your divorce has been finalized is that your former spouse is acting in violation of your divorce agreement in some way. If a divorce process has been contentious and filled with conflict, it is not out of the realm of possibility that a former spouse could act spitefully or bitterly and try to make your life more difficult. When divorcing couples work with a qualified divorce mediator, that kind of behavior is less likely because of the emphasis on collaboration, cooperation, and mutual problem solving. However, most circumstances have exceptions, and mediated divorces have been known to result in post-divorce conflict
Normal life has been turned upside down in 2020 as families work to minimize their risk of exposure to COVID-19. If you are divorced and share custody of your children, this has likely become much more complicated for you. Some families are dealing with virtual school, a hybrid schedule, lack of normal extracurricular activities, and a complete change in schedule this year. One thing that COVID-19 will not change is the need to work together to co-parent with your children’s best interests at heart. Look for a divorce mediator, co-parenting specialist or just need some helpful suggestions from an expert?

No matter how you settled your divorce and how much conflict was between the two of you, post-divorce mediation can help you manage new issues that come up after your divorce is final. Johnson Mediation specializes in post-divorce mediation for those in the Chanhassen, Minnesota area.
