Partnering with an experienced divorce mediator can be critical to the success of the process. Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn is a law firm in Coon Rapids, MN, that specializes in providing divorce mediation services to local couples that are looking to find solutions to areas of conflict that arise during a divorce settlement.

A divorcing couple can map out the point of discussion they will cover during the mediation process, depending on their unique needs and situation. Very often, divorce mediation centers around one or more of the following areas:
● Division of property, assets, debt or other financial issues
● Determination of child and/or spousal support
● Development of a child custody arrangement
● Creation of a parenting plan which outlines
The role of a mediator is simple – a mediator does not influence the decisions reached in a divorce settlement. You and your partner determine which issues are mediated. You can choose to mediate some issues in a divorce and not others. Mediation is entirely confidential and your mediator cannot be called upon to testify should you end up needing to move your case to the court system.
