If you are in the middle of a divorce, you may be feeling overwhelmed both emotionally and financially and it may be very difficult to see how to navigate the process in a healthy way for your family. The Minnesota courts strongly recommend an Alternative Dispute Resolution to settle the important terms of your divorce rather than proceed through the traditional litigation process. Divorce mediation is a highly effective way to settle issues like child custody, division of property and assets and determination of the need for spousal support.

Important Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Mediation has many potential benefits for couples who are facing divorce. It costs significantly less than a court battle and takes less time which can minimize the stress of the overall process. Mediation allows you and your soon to be ex-spouse to make decisions about your divorce rather than leaving these decisions to a judge. After all you and your ex are in the best possible position to make these decisions and working with an experienced mediator can empower you to do so. Mediation can work well for even complicated divorces high in conflict and is entirely confidential and sets a more positive tone for any future post-divorce interactions.
