Non Bias Divorce Mediation Process

One of the most important factors for effective and successful divorce mediation is the neutrality of the mediator. The very foundation of mediation hinges on this impartiality — it allows for both parties to trust the mediator, and not be concerned that the mediator will favor one party over the other. This impartiality leads to a more productive and constructive discussion where both parties can be honest and open and find solutions to the most difficult, personal and sometimes painful aspects of a divorce settlement. The team at AMS Mediation believes strongly in the no bias divorce mediation process and is committed to offering this neutrality to the clients we serve in the South Metro area, including Burnsville, Lakeville, Shakopee, Edina and Bloomington MN.

Family Mediator

Divorce is difficult for all involved — the two parties who have decided to separate their lives must find their path forward on their own, in perhaps a very different direction than expected. The children in the family also have to adjust to a new schedule, a new home and splitting their time between their two parents. These dramatic and sometimes unwanted life changes can result in family conflict, high emotions, resentment, anger and at the very least many difficult questions about a new future. A family mediator can help sort out a wide variety of important issues related to finances, parenting agreements, and other unique issues that impact your family. AMS Mediation specializes in partnering with families in Burnsville, MN to provide affordable, effective, client-centered mediation services to help families forge a path forward that works for them.

Mediator for Divorce

One of the most common and startling divorce statistics is that nearly 50% of all marriages will end in divorce. While this statistic goes against another common notion of “living happily ever after”, the fact is that many of us will either go through a divorce ourselves or know someone close who decides to end their marriage. Even as recently as 20 years ago, most divorces were litigated through the court system, costing couples significant time and money. However, more recently, divorce mediation has become a popular and highly effective tool for settling a divorce. In mediation, a couple works with a neutral third party (mediator) to discuss and resolve unsettled issues like division of assets/debts, child custody, also known as the development of a parenting plan, and spousal/child support. AMS Mediation of Burnsville, MN specializes in divorce mediation that is client-focused, fair, efficient, respectful, solution-based, and non-judgmental.

Divorce and Spousal Support

Many of the very difficult issues during a divorce settlement are related to money. Decisions about spousal support, child support (if applicable) and division of assets and debts are complicated and have both logistical and emotional components. Spousal support is the amount of money that the court determines one spouse should pay to the other after a divorce. Each state has their own laws for establishing this amount. Unfortunately, Minnesota does not provide specific guidelines about how to calculate a spousal maintenance obligation. This makes spousal support cases particularly complex. AMS Mediation serves the communities of Shakopee, Bloomington, Richfield, Burnsville, Lakeville MN and can help you and your divorcing spouse resolve all aspects of a divorce, including the determination of spousal support.
