Divorce is widely recognized as one of the most difficult transitions in one’s life. When it comes time to settle the important issues necessary to finalize your divorce – like division of joint property, child custody and child and spousal support – you have a choice about how you move forward. Divorce mediation is a way to settle the terms of your divorce with less stress. Divorce mediation allows you to resolve these issues confidentially, in less time and with less of a financial burden. Johnson Mediation specializes in confidential divorce mediation in the Twin Cities, MN.
Benefits of Confidential Mediation Services
When you decide to hire lawyers and settle the terms of your divorce via traditional litigation, you surrender your privacy. Your case is public in the court system and you must tell your story and battle your soon to be ex-spouse in front of a judge, other attorneys, court workers and potentially other family and friends who decide to sit in on the proceedings and/or testify. This can be a very painful process, compounding an already difficult situation.
The discussions that take place during mediation sessions are entirely confidential. Even if you decide to pursue litigation after mediation sessions, what is discussed in these sessions cannot be disclosed in court. This tends to help facilitate more positive, productive and cooperative discussions between the two parties that can help find workable solutions for all parties. Johnson Mediation empowers you and your spouse to find areas of compromise and common ground. This allows you to focus on your future rather than your past.
