A divorce mediator’s job is to help facilitate resolution to any of a number of difficult issues in a neutral and impartial way. A mediator is a neutral third party who does not have any interest in choosing sides or favoring one party over the other. Instead, a mediator will sit down with both parties and help facilitate discussion that leads to compromise and solutions. That said, you or your divorcing spouse may have a preference of the gender of your mediator. Johnson Mediation is led by Jeff Johnson, who can provide a neutral male divorce mediator’s perspective. Jeff is a state qualified neutral mediator, social & financial early neutral evaluator, parenting time expediter, parenting consultant, parenting coach and a parenting class instructor. He has many years of experience working with couples to help them find solutions that work for their unique situation. Jeff can guide you through the entire mediation process.
The Divorce Mediation Process
Jeff has a background in both business, finance and psychology which lends itself well to helping couples address both the emotional and financial issues that arise during the divorce process. In addition, Jeff has himself been through a difficult divorce and provides that perspective. He understands firsthand just how difficult the process can be for both parties as well as for the children in the marriage. Through mediation, you can expect to settle issues like division of property, assets and debts, the development of a parenting plan (child custody arrangement) and even agreeing on a child/spousal support payment if necessary. Johnson Mediation is based in Chanhassen, MN and also serves Richfield and Bloomington, MN.
To settle a divorce, you should plan for 3-4 2 hour mediation sessions with a trained mediator and your divorcing spouse. At the conclusion of the mediation process, your mediator will document the agreement for review by each of the participants and their attorneys (if needed).
