If you and your spouse have decided it is time to take steps to end your marriage, things may be very complicated. Conflict can be extremely high, especially if you and your spouse have been struggling interpersonally for many years and have different opinions about how to move forward. You may assume that your only option is a long, expensive and stressful court battle to settle the terms of your divorce. Before you hire a lawyer, you may want to investigate the option of using divorce mediation to settle your divorce. Jeff Johnson, founder of Johnson Mediation, is available to help you navigate the divorce
When you talk to individuals who have been through a divorce, many will tell you that communication breakdown was one major factor in the cause of the divorce. When conflict is high, communication becomes extremely difficult and contentious. However, in order to settle the terms of your divorce and then co-exist after your divorce is final, it is very important to find a way to communicate in a healthy way, if at all possible. Johnson Mediation can help you find solutions to the outstanding issues that remain between you including child custody, division of property and assets and child and spousal support, while helping you improve your communication.
Jeff Johnson is a trained mediator and has been through a divorce himself, so as a divorce communication expert, he has successfully worked with many Minnesota couples to resolve conflict and move forward. As your divorce mediator, Jeff will encourage you to set goals, communicate clearly
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.

If you are moving through the divorce process and are not sure that you want to go through the traditional court system, you may want to consider completing an early neutral evaluation to get a sense of all of the facts in your case and how your case might be interpreted. There are two types of early neutral evaluations – financial early neutral evaluations and social early neutral evaluations. Jeff Johnson of Johnson Mediation is a male early neutral evaluation specialist in Minnetonka, MN who can guide you through the process in a productive way. Jeff has been through divorce himself and has devoted his career to helping couples navigate this complicated process.
A financial early neutral evaluation can help you settle the terms of your divorce related to dividing your assets and joint property. In many cases, once all information is shared with the other, resolution can be reached without ever setting foot into a courtroom. A financial early neutral evaluation is completely voluntary and can really only help you. If it works, you can complete an agreement that will be a part of your divorce settlement process.
Mediation and Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) are two different types of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), which are used to help resolve difficult issues between two parties. Both of these tools are used to resolve disputes, disagreements or conflict without having to go through the full litigation process. The professional staff at Johnson Mediation can assist with either alternative dispute resolution method, depending on what is best for your unique situation.
