For most people the process of getting divorced is physically and emotionally draining. The financial costs associated with a typical divorce compound the stress and anxiety even more. Parents in particular can be left feeling exhausted and confused about which way to turn for help. The court system views the dissolution of marriage to be a legal issue but it is so much more than that. Unfortunately, the emotional, financial and physical aspects of raising a child can be left unresolved without proper support from a professional mediator. Johnson Mediation is an excellent resource for individual parents or couples who could benefit from a fresh perspective on divorce transition and successful co-parenting going forward.
Navigating Divorce Transition
The stages of pre-divorce, during the divorce process and post decree can result in adverse affects for parents and children alike. Many try to navigate a divorce transition with the support of friends and family only to wind up with hurt feelings. Divorce mediators have training in respectful and responsive ways to resolve family issues. Having the assistance of a neutral party can make it easier for individuals to discuss the many difficulties of single parenting more openly and honest, making for an easier transition to the next phase of life.
