Divorce Mediation is a process by which you can settle your divorce without proceeding through the traditional court systems. In divorce mediation, you and your divorcing spouse work with a neutral, third party to discuss and resolve all aspects of your divorce, including spousal/child support, division of assets, property and debt and the development of a parenting plan. The mediator does not act as a decider in the discussion with you and your spouse, but instead helps facilitate a productive and constructive discussion in a safe environment. You can also elect to allow your respective lawyers to join the discussion if you wish. Divorce Mediation can be a highly effective tool for couples who are looking for a way to resolve issues in their divorce without a lengthy and costly court battle. Johnson Mediation of Chanhassen, MN, specializes in divorce mediation and can help guide you and your divorcing spouse through this complex and difficult time.
Benefits of Mediation Over a Court Battle
Divorce mediation can work for couples at any part of the divorce process. It is by definition less adversarial than a court battle and focuses on finding common ground and creative solutions that will work for your family. Working through the court system is more adversarial and judges generally provide standard rulings that are not tailored or unique to a family situation. A court battle can cost two to ten times more than mediation and take many months to complete. If you decide to move forward with mediation, you can expect to meet with your mediator and your soon to be ex-spouse for a series of mediation sessions, usually 2 hours long. The entire process can usually be completed in 3 to 4 two hour sessions.
