Minnesota Mediators Offering Virtual Divorce Mediation Services

Minnesota Mediators Offering Virtual Mediation ServicesMediation has always been a highly effective and efficient way to resolve the terms of your divorce without the stress and expense of a court battle. In fact, in the state of Minnesota, mediation has always been a recommended way of resolving issues like division of property, child custody and child/spousal support. Even in normal times, the court system cannot accommodate all of the divorce cases in a timely manner. Over the last few years, however, with the emergence of COVID-19, it has become even more difficult to schedule court dates for divorce proceedings. As a result, mediators have adapted

Understanding Personal Dynamics And The Law To Settle Divorce

Understanding Personal Dynamics And The Law To Settle Divorce Not that long ago, when we simplified things into male and female ways of understanding and interacting with the world, conventional wisdom said that it was a male trait to contribute verbally and non-verbally to conversations to solve problems, and that it was a female trait to offer reassurances that they were listening and trying to understand. It is an overly simplistic description of human interaction for sure, and we know now that the male-female dichotomy is not complete. However, there is value in the idea that in every human interaction, there is a desire to be understood. One of the most important goals

Navigating The Divorce Mediation Process

Understanding The Divorce Mediation Process If you are planning for a divorce and considering mediation as a tool to resolve the terms of your settlement, you may have questions about the divorce mediation process. When we think of divorce, we often envision a couple on 2 different sides of a courtroom with attorneys pleading to a judge about custody and dividing your joint assets. In fact, mediation offers you an entirely different pathway when it comes to settling the terms of your divorce – one that costs less, is less stressful and that is less emotionally taxing. In addition, divorce mediation allows you to make the decisions for your family rather then a judge.

Divorce After The Pandemic

Divorce After The PandemicSeveral months into the Covid-19 pandemic, it became obvious to most people that it was taking a toll on the people of the United States. With the development of vaccines, there was a new promise that we would be coming out of the pandemic relatively soon, and with that came the hope that maybe, just maybe, life would get back to normal. In many ways, we have returned to normal activities, and that should be celebrated. Still, stress seems to be a prominent part of most people’s lives, and we all know that stress can be very hard on marital relationships.

Why Minnesota Courts Encourage Divorce Mediation You may be surprised to learn that the Minnesota court system encourages couples who are going through a divorce to try divorce mediation before going through the traditional court system to settle. In fact, nearly all divorce cases can be settled outside of the litigation process. This includes fairly and equitably dividing joint assets, debts, and property, developing a child custody agreement (and/or a parenting agreement) and determining whether or not spousal or child support is necessary in your case. Here are some of the reasons why the court

First Things To Do For A Divorce And WhyThe stress of the times we are now living through may make us think that our world is no longer capable of innovation or improvement. Our patience has worn thin with bad customer service, and many customer service professionals have lost patience with customers who seem intent on picking a fight with them. Life just seems harder for most of us these days, and that is perhaps even more starkly true for couples who have decided that they have no other choice but to proceed through the divorce process.
