If you and your ex cannot agree on anything and have a history of extreme conflict, you may assume that you have no choice but to litigate your divorce in the courts. After all, how could you possibly agree on how to settle important issues like child custody and division of your shared property if you could not ever agree before. Well, before you hire attorneys and move toward a bitter court battle, consider mediation as a low cost, less stressful alternative. The team at Johnson Mediation can guide you through even an adversarial divorce.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption in our daily lives. Many of us are working from home indefinitely, have children home completing school virtually and are asked to wear masks when we enter a place of business to slow the spread of the virus. For the last several months, time has seemed to slow down and it has been difficult to get routine tasks outside of the house completed. If you are in the process of a divorce or are beginning to think that’s where your marriage is headed, you may think that you have to put this on hold like so many other things right now. However, that is not the case.
A toxic divorce can mean different things to different couples. For some, it is characterized by intense conflict, anger and feelings of hostility, feelings of judgement or being married to a narcissist spouse.

If you have decided that it is time to finally take that first step toward divorce, Johnson Mediation can help. Our team has experience reducing the level of conflict surrounding a toxic divorce and can give you the support and resources you need to finally move forward.
