Divorce is an incredibly stressful time for both parties as well as for any children from the marriage and extended family. Dividing a family unit takes an emotional toll on all involved and the stress often spans over several years, when you include the time before the divorce when it was being considered and during the divorce process. During different times of the process, both parties need different kinds and different levels of support. Johnson Mediation offers a variety of divorce support to divorcing couples who live in Shakopee, Minnesota to help your family manage the stress of the process.
2020 has been a year like no other. Our country has faced the first pandemic in nearly 100 years, and we have experienced many changes in just a few short months. Social distancing is now recommended, many businesses have closed their doors, people are working remotely and wearing masks, and schools are closed all in an effort to keep people safe. COVID-19 has changed our daily life. However, despite the need to prevent spread of the disease, there are things in our lives that still need to move forward. For couples who made the very difficult decision to divorce and are ready to navigate the process, Johnson Mediation can help.
The last several months have been an unprecedented time for all of us. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to alter our work schedules, our social interactions, school for our children and our shopping habits. For health care providers, this is an extremely stressful time of caring for those who have become sick and worrying that you may bring it home to your family. Many others are facing stress of a different kind as unemployment numbers skyrocket. Our family dynamics are also under stress. Families who share custody of their children have had to adapt to this new normal as well.
Johnson Mediation offers help and support to divorcing couples in Chanhassen, MN. Johnson Mediation offers not only an alternative to the traditional court-based divorce process, but also provides support through the stressful process of divorce. Historically, as divorce has become a more acceptable means of ending a marriage in our society, most have occurred within the context of the court system. The nature of the court system has determined that most divorce cases taking place in the courts take on a more contentious tone. This is the result of the adversarial nature of many court processes.
