Johnson Mediation offers a wide variety of resolution and mediation services for families in Minnesota that are navigating the divorce process. Alternative dispute resolution processes are highly effective, affordable and can lay the groundwork for a more positive relationship after divorce. The courts are extremely busy and cannot accommodate each and every divorce case. So, they actually require all couples to attempt an alternative dispute method before litigation (unless there are concerns about domestic violence. Here are some of the services we provide to families in the area:
Divorce Mediation: Divorce mediation is a process that allows you and your soon to be ex-spouse to come to decisions about how to settle the terms of your divorce with the help of a neutral third party. Mediation is collaborative, faster than litigation and is far less costly, both emotionally and financially. You can expect to resolve the terms of your divorce in 3-4 two-hour mediation sessions.
Parenting Consulting: A parenting consultant is sometimes appointed by the court and works closely with a family on issues related to visitation, discipline, different parenting styles, and extracurricular activities. If decisions cannot be made with the help of your parenting consultant, then your consultant issues a decision which each party can accept.
Parenting Time Expeditor: A parenting time expeditor is also appointed by the courts and focuses primarily on resolving issues around parenting time.
Early Neutral Evaluation: An early neutral evaluation will give you and your ex a preview of what a settlement might look like in your specific case so that you can weigh this information and allow it to help you determine how you want to move forward with custody and a financial agreement.
Divorce Coaching: A divorce coach is hired by one party and provides support to that individual during the divorce process. A divorce coach can be your advocate, provide you with information and guidance about the divorce process, and help you manage the stress that comes with the process.
Post-divorce Support: If you have kids, you will not be able to cut ties entirely with your ex when you finalize your divorce. You will need to maintain contact and that may contribute to additional feelings of sadness, anger and other emotion. Our staff can help you manage these emotions and keep you moving forward with your life.
