Divorce is an extremely difficult and stressful time for most individuals. It is even often listed as one of the top 5 most stressful life events. If you and your spouse have decided it is time for divorce, it may be a good opportunity to consider what type of support you need to get through this challenging time. One little known source of support during a divorce can be a divorce coach. Unlike a divorce attorney, a divorce coach does NOT offer legal advice. A divorce coach can be used in addition to or instead of a divorce lawyer and…
Going through a divorce is one of the most difficult and stressful major life events. After many years of marriage, suddenly living separately from your spouse can be a difficult adjustment, even if the divorce was the best decision for all involved. It is normal to feel a sense of significant grief and loss after divorce, and to need additional support from family, friends and even a professional. Johnson Mediation offers professional grief management & support to help you work through your grief and move forward in a healthy way.
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.
If you are contemplating a divorce, you may have been advised to consider mediation as a way to settle the important issues such as division of property, assets and debt, development of a parenting plan (or custody agreement) and even determination of appropriate child and/or spousal support. You may have heard that mediation is less expensive and takes less time than litigation, but you may still have questions about the process and how it works. Johnson Mediation specializes in offering professional divorce mediation services and can help you navigate the entire divorce process from start to finish. Read on for an overview of the important aspects of the mediation process.
Every couple who finds themselves in the process of divorce should pursue the best possible means of finalizing the divorce. At Johnson Mediation, we provide mediation services for divorcing couples. We believe that the evidence of the last several decades indicates that mediation is the single best means of finalizing a divorce for most couples. Infact, the court in Minnesota may require the two parents to agree to mediate any disputes regarding joint physical custody before bringing a custody dispute back to court. Before you determine that mediated divorce is the right choice for you, we want you to understand how the divorce mediation process works.
Mediation is defined as an intervention in a dispute with the goal of promoting reconciliation, compromise or a settlement. When you and your spouse decide to divorce, there is often a baseline of high conflict. Divorce mediation is designed to actually resolve and reduce this conflict – rather than to exacerbate it, or make it worse. Settling a divorce through the traditional court system can have the exact opposite effect, increasing the overall conflict between the two parties. If you are looking for a way to settle your divorce in a way that puts you and your family first, divorce mediation is an avenue to consider. Johnson Mediation specializes in divorce mediation and can help you navigate the entire divorce process, from start to finish. We will help you get through it, find closure and even a bit of hope for the future.
Johnson Mediation provides strong and effective mediation for divorcing couples. Our team brings to each case decades of experience, expertise in Minnesota divorce law, and compassion for the people with whom we work. Though divorce rates have leveled off in the last ten to twenty years, it is still a frequent occurrence in our society and affects more than fifty percent of all married couples. If you are in the process of seeking a divorce, mediation can be a great way to solve complex issues like division of property, development of a parenting plan and determination of child and/or spousal support.
Parents in the process of divorce are becoming increasingly aware of the many benefits of divorce mediation as the preferred method for settling issues at the end of their marriage. However, unmarried parents, for whom divorce is not the most accurate description of the way their relationships end, may not realize that mediation is also available to them. When unmarried people have children, they may be in even greater need of the services of a professionally trained and highly experienced mediation service. In the south metro, we believe that Johnson Mediation is the best option for unmarried parents in need of mediation services.
Parenting Time can be a contentious issue in divorce. If parenting time is mediated by a team like Johnson Mediation, you may find yourself feeling a sense of relief you did not know was possible during and after your divorce. The role of a parenting time expeditor is to help you and your divorcing spouse find the right balance of time spent with your children. Johnson Mediation’s approach to parenting time has helped many clients, and we are confident that it will help you.
Divorce is difficult. And when you have children, divorce is potentially devastatingly hard. Children are vulnerable to the emotional stress that accompanies the major change that divorce brings.
When you decide to separate or divorce and you share children, your top priority is very likely the well-being of your kids. You must settle many important issues regarding how your children will be parented after the divorce, including a custody agreement as well as the negotiation of child support. Johnson Mediation offers comprehensive mediation services to help families navigate the entire divorce process and move forward with a positive and healthy life. Our team understands how important your kid’s well- being is to you and we will make sure to put your family first every step of the way.
