In the state of Minnesota, you are actually not legally required to be separated for a period of time before you are able to begin the divorce process. Even though the law says that spouses do not need to be legally separated before they divorce, it may prove to be an important part of the divorce process as it mirrors the process in many ways. Separation may prove to be a smart first step for you and your spouse if you are considering a divorce. Starting the mediation process with separation can put you in the best possible position to navigate the divorce process successfully. During the time that you are separated, you can work with the team at Johnson Mediation to make the necessary decisions so that, when you are ready, you can finalize your divorce and focus on your future.
You may have heard about the many benefits of using divorce mediation to settle the terms of your divorce. It is affordable, saves you money, takes less time than a court battle, is entirely confidential and allows you and your ex to shape your own future. It is important, however, not to underestimate how important it is to find the right mediator for you. Mediation only works if both parties voluntarily agree to participate, and the resolution is only successful if both parties really buy in. While your mediator does not decide how to settle your case, he/she serves as an incredibly important role in the process. Jeff Johnson, founder of Johnson Mediation, is a trusted and capable mediator that brings both extraordinary skill and personal experience with divorce to each case he works on.

Settling the terms of your divorce includes many different important pieces that can seem almost impossible when you begin. Developing a fair and equitable parenting plan, asset distribution and keeping your divorce civil are just a few of the challenging tasks that must be handled before your divorce is final. Mediation is one way to resolve these complex issues without increasing conflict and spending a fortune. Johnson Mediation will help you navigate all of these issues while keeping you focused on what is really important – you and your family.
One serious concern about settling a difficult and contentious divorce is how to keep the details of your divorce confidential. After living through the experience, the last thing that you want to do is worry that the intimate details are known by others. Your marriage and your divorce are extremely personal, and it can be painful to relive it in front of just about anyone. Using mediation to resolve the terms of your divorce rather than litigation is an excellent way to keep the details of your divorce confidential. Johnson Mediation can help you navigate your divorce confidentially, to protect you and your family.
