Signing divorce papers may be the official end to your marriage, but it is often just the beginning of a new phase of your relationship. There are many issues that can come up once a divorce is final that might not need litigation, but that cannot be resolved without assistance.

So, when you find that you and your ex-spouse cannot agree on an issue about child custody, or child or spousal support, contact the team at Johnson Mediation for assistance.
Resolve Issues Post-Divorce without Litigation
The court system is simply not set to manage every disagreement after a divorce is final. However, it is common for a difficult issues to come up after a divorce that a divorced couple needs help managing. It is difficult to anticipate all problems that may come up after a divorce is final, and mediation can help you resolve these issues without involving the court. Most often these issues are related to co-parenting after a divorce. Some common issues that can be resolved in post-divorce mediation include:
Disagreements about medical care, education or religion: As children age, their needs change and it is normal for parents to have differing opinions about important decisions related to medical care, education or religious preferences. Mediation offers a neutral environment where these issues can be discussed and resolved.
Child Custody Agreement Changes
Proposed changes to child custody agreement: Changes to a custody agreement can be necessary in the event of a move or when a child gets old enough to express their own wishes for where they spend their time. A mediator can help make necessary adjustments to a child custody agreement.
Child Support Payments
Problems with child support payments: If your ex-spouse is not paying child support as the court has ordered, you can attempt to resolve this via mediation before proceeding to the court. A change in income (promotion or job loss) can also be a signal that child support payment amounts need to be reviewed.
