Affordable Divorce Options in MinnesotaDivorce is extremely stressful in many ways – emotionally, physically and financially.  The emotional and physical impact are natural parts of grieving the loss of your marriage and, to an extent, must run its course. However, there are things that you can do to minimize the negative financial impact of a divorce. AMS Mediation offers comprehensive mediation services and focuses on helping you and your family navigate divorce while conserving financial resources.

Conserve Financial Resources During Divorce

Many decisions that you and your divorcing spouse must make during the settlement process will impact your current financial state. You and your partner must find a way to equitably divide your property, your assets and even your debt so that the two of you can separate financially. This can involve selling property, moving, and a divorce can impact your overall financial status. Divorce mediation gives you and your spouse the opportunity to make these important decisions yourselves, rather than leaving this in the hands of the court. No one knows your unique family situation better than you and your spouse – so it is fitting that you try to settle the important terms of your divorce if at all possible.

Mediation is an affordable divorce option for couples in Minnesota.  You can expect to spend, on average, $4000 for all mediation related costs (including mediator’s fee, filing fee with the court, and legal drafting). Traditional litigation costs the average couple around $15,000. This cost savings can make a big difference when money is already tight, alleviate significant stress, and reduce tension and conflict. Mediation also takes less time than a court battle, which can help you move forward in a healthy way more quickly.
