Each divorce is unique – and part of what adds to the individual nature of divorce is the complexity of each case. This complexity can come in many forms. Your divorce may be complicated because of the intense conflict between you and your spouse, the inability for productive communication, or it can be related to financial issues including joint property, assets and debt. No matter how complicated your divorce, you have options when it comes to how to settle the terms of your divorce. Just because your divorce is complicated does not mean that you have to engage in a long, expensive and grueling court battle. The mediation process is set up to handle all types of divorce cases including the most complicated ones. If you are concerned about the level of complexity of your divorce, Johnson Mediation offers a free consultation to allow you to ask specific questions and determine if you think that the mediation process might work for you.
Try Mediation Before Litigation
The Minnesota court system encourages all couples to try mediation before proceeding through the traditional court system. This is in large part because the court system cannot handle the volume of divorce cases in a timely fashion. In addition, mediation is less expensive and takes less time than litigation, so it has many benefits for the couple. Mediation has proven highly effective for even the most complicated divorce cases. When necessary, the mediation can include outside experts that can lend their advice and input like accountants, financial advisors, attorneys and appraisers.
