Divorce mediation has become a more popular option for settling all aspects of a divorce over the last 10-15 years. It is less expensive than a court battle and takes significantly less time and is less stressful. And, the State of Minnesota requires divorcing couples, who do not have a history of domestic violence to participate in an Alternative Dispute Resolution Process (ADR), such as mediation, prior to appearing in court. Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn offers divorce mediation services to clients in the Minnesota area who are in the midst of a divorce. Lisa Kallemeyn is a Qualified Neutral under Rule 114 of the MN Rules of Practice and has more than 20 years of mediation experience and she can help you and your divorcing partner navigate the difficult process of divorce with a focus on your future and what is best for your family.
Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Lisa Kallemeyn is qualified to serve as your divorce mediator or your divorce attorney, but not both. If you choose to use mediation to settle your divorce, her law background will make the mediation process run more smoothly as she will be able to provide accurate, current and balanced legal information about the process. Other benefits of trying mediation include:
- Costs less: Divorce mediation is typically 40-60% less expensive than a court battle.
Takes less time: To settle a divorce, you should be prepared to participate in several two hour mediation sessions over the course of several months. A court battle can take months or even longer. In this time, you can settle all aspects of a divorce, including division of property, child/spousal support and creating a child custody agreement.
- Encourages creative solutions: You and your divorcing spouse are empowered toward solutions that work for your unique needs, rather than relying on the court to determine the settlement. These solutions can be outside of the box.
- Decreases conflict: Mediation emphasizes cooperative discussion, rather than further exacerbating an already contentious situation.
- Confidential: Mediation allows you to solve your issues in an entirely private way, without having to publicize your private battle in front of a judge and the staff in a courtroom.
