The new year is traditionally a time for people to look at their life and assess their successes and failures and look ahead toward a new year full of hope and change. Many people make new year’s resolutions to exercise more, eat less or connect with the people you love. For couples that have been struggling for months, if not years, a new year can also be a time to mark the end of a relationship and a new beginning for your family. If you have decided that you and your spouse are going to divorce in the early part of 2021, divorce mediation might be a tool to consider in resolving important issues like division of joint property, child custody and the need for spousal support. Johnson Mediation is here to help you through this process.
Virtual Mediation Sessions
2020 has been an especially difficult year for many of us. COVID-19 has forced many of us to spend more time at home, working from home, and supervising our kids completing virtual school. Our routines have been disrupted and for some, it has exacerbated already existing interpersonal problems between individuals. So, if you were struggling in your marriage before 2020, it is certainly possible that this year has not helped you improve it. If this year has put you in the position of taking that difficult and necessary step toward divorce, you have options to consider. Mediation allows you to complete this process without spending a fortune. In addition, you can complete mediation in a matter of months, rather than spending up to a year in litigation, waiting on the schedules of your attorneys and the courts to align.
Minnesota Divorce Mediation Services
Divorce mediation can be completed virtually and sessions can be scheduled at times that are convenient for you and your ex. You drive the process and you ultimately make the decisions about how the terms of your divorce will be settled. Because you and your ex know your family best, this actually empowers you to find solutions that have the best chance of working for you long term. When you work with our team, you will be guided through the process, we can explain how the Minnesota law works and what you will need in order to complete and file your settlement. In addition, we are available after your divorce is final if you need to consider any amendments to your settlement.
2021 promises to be a new start for many. If you would like to learn more about divorce mediation, give us a call at 952-401-7599.
