Parent Mediator

When parents get divorced, their children necessarily become the focus of their attention. A harsh reality of divorce is that parents are not always able to settle disputes and disagreements about co-parenting amicably after a divorce. In such cases, it can be extremely helpful to have a mediator to help you reach resolution on common issues such as parenting time changes and issues around education, religion and different parenting styles. AMS Mediation of Burnsville, MN, provides parenting mediation services for parents during and after their divorces have been finalized to help solve difficult problems and allow you to move forward knowing that you are doing the best for your kids.

Divorce Mediation Help

If you are in the midst of a divorce or think that your marriage is headed in that direction, you may be feeling a whirlwind of emotions — anger, sadness, disappointment, disbelief and uncertainty about the future. According to the most recent CDC data, 41% of first marriages end in divorce, 60% of second marriages and 73% of third marriages. We all enter our marriage believing and trusting that we will not become part of this daunting statistic. But, divorce is a reality for many couples and, fortunately, one that can be managed in a way so as not to further hurt both parties financially and emotionally. Over the last decade or so, mediation has been used more and more frequently to help settle important issues in a divorce without a lengthy court battle that is expensive, time consuming and stressful. AMS Mediation specializes in helping you and your divorcing spouse navigate the divorce process while focusing on conserving financial resources and keeping the children at the forefront of all decisions including developing positive and healthy parenting plans.

Divorce Attorney Alternative

Traditional court-based divorce can be enormously expensive, stressful and time consuming. It also tends to encourage animosity between divorcing people because lawyers tend to opt for an adversarial approach in order to maximize the benefit to their clients. AMS Mediation, however, offers a divorce attorney alternative. If you work with AMS Mediation to settle your divorce, you will be taking advantage of a new and important trend in divorce law, which is the use of mediation services rather than proceeding through the courts. Almost no one decides to get married with the idea that they will one day decide to get divorced. The fairy tale of love everlasting is a powerful symbol in our society, and most of us buy into it. It is, after all, an expression of hope that we enter into a relationship with the belief that it will last forever.
