For many couples, it is hard to think about life after divorce. After investing so many years in your marriage, the focus when the decision is made to end the marriage is on the specifics of the divorce. If you do spend time thinking about what your life will be like after your divorce, these thoughts likely do NOT include your former spouse. However, your divorce is just the beginning of a new phase of your relationship, especially if you have children. Post-divorce mediation is a great tool for managing inevitable conflict that comes up after your divorce is final, without having to go back to the courtroom.
Benefits of Mediation After Divorce
Johnson Mediation specializes in divorce mediation if you are still working to settle the terms of your divorce, but we also work with couples who have already divorced and are having trouble settling a disagreement or have different opinions about how an issue should be handled. These issues are most often related to co-parenting issues like changes to a schedule, extracurricular activities, child support payments, or issues related to medical care and/or insurance. These issues are ideal for the mediation process, rather than letting the courts determine the outcome.
Our team now offers all mediation sessions virtually, so you can resolve the issues that you face more quickly and without risking any exposure to COVID-19. We are finding that many families need to work through issues related to the pandemic, because so many things have changed for parents and children. You may need to adapt your parenting plan when there is a potential exposure, if one parent is working a different schedule, or if school is virtual. It is important that families have flexibility during this time, but also respect each other. Making decisions that are in the best interest of the kids is a great starting point and our staff will help you keep that in the front of your mind. Virtual post-divorce mediation gives you the opportunity to resolve these issues safely, from the comfort of your own home, without involving lawyers and the court.
