When you say your vows, you imagine a long, happy life with your spouse. For many, however, this reality simply does not materialize and a couple realizes that they are better off apart. Many things can change during your relationship – communication can become strained, financial stress can cause conflict, the addition of children can change the dynamic between you and your spouse, or infidelity can cause a serious break. When you find yourself ready to proceed with a divorce, a divorce mediator can help you navigate the process in a more positive and healthier way than traditional litigation. Johnson Mediation offers comprehensive divorce mediation services for Minnesota couples who are ready to end their marriage and begin a new chapter of their lives.
Are you and your spouse facing a divorce? Litigation, also known as a court battle, can be extremely expensive both financially and emotionally. Mediation is an excellent and even preferred alternative to litigation that can save you money, time and stress. A trained and experienced divorce mediator serves as a neutral third party and can help you and your divorcing spouse find solutions to the many difficult issues faced in a divorce settlement. A divorce mediator does not make decisions for you – you and your spouse are empowered to make these important decisions. A mediator helps by facilitating an open, positive and productive discussion that can yield solutions that work for all involved.
The divorce process can be a complicated and difficult time for everyone in a family. It is a process that most of us only go through once in our lives (we hope!) so it is natural to have many questions about the process. Johnson Mediation specializes in providing divorce mediation services for those who are looking for an alternative to settling the terms of your divorce through the courts. Here are some common questions about the divorce mediation process that can help you decide if it is something that you want to pursue.
