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.
Divorce mediation is much more well-known now than ever before, and, as a result, more couples are choosing this method more often for its simplicity and low cost.

Pre-divorce mediation services are sometimes overlooked because many couples fight against divorce for many years
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.
One of the primary reasons couples decide to divorce is often rooted in conflict. The conflict in your marriage may have increased to a point that it was no longer healthy for either of you to stay married. In fact, conflict and arguing is one of the most common reasons cited for a divorce. It is important to realize, however, that getting a divorce does not automatically eliminate the conflict between you and your ex-spouse. If you find that you are fighting with your ex-spouse after your divorce is final, you might benefit from Johnson Mediation’s post-divorce mediation services.
Effective Post-Divorce Mediation
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.
