Litigation or Mediation for your Divorce

Once you make the important decision to divorce, you have a few decisions to make early on in the process. The first thing to consider is how you want to settle the terms of your divorce. You may assume that a court battle is your only option, but it is not. Divorce mediation is a highly effective way to navigate divorce without the excess cost, stress and time that can be associated with litigation. Either method can help you resolve all aspects of your divorce, including dividing joint property, developing a custody agreement and determining the need for spousal maintenance and/or child support. You should interview potential mediators and/or attorneys early in the process to get a sense of cost and fit. Please note that Minnesota courts strongly recommend that you attempt mediation before proceeding through the courts to save time and money.

Once you decide what process you will follow to settle your divorce and hire a mediator and/or an attorney, you can begin the process. Mediation can occur exclusively online, providing you with flexibility and the convenience of completing the process from home. Some of the next steps you will need to take in the divorce process will be to catalog your belongings so that you can begin to think about how best to divide those assets, take stock of your financial situation, communicate with your kids and find ways to take care of yourself.
