On top of the already intense emotional toll that divorce takes, the financial impact can be devastating on a family, particularly in a highly contentious litigated divorce. There is an option for settling the terms of your divorce in a more affordable way. You and your spouse can use mediation to settle the important terms of your divorce, including division of property, creation of a parenting plan (or custody agreement) and determination of whether or not child and/or spousal support is needed. AMS Mediation specializes in offering affordable divorce services in Dakota County, MN. Our team can help you navigate your divorce from start to finish and minimize the financial impact on you, your family and your future.
How Much Does Divorce Cost?
Settling your divorce without going through the traditional court system and hiring multiple lawyers can save you a significant amount of money. Generally, you can expect to pay up to (or even a bit more than) $15,000 if you proceed via litigation. Mediation can save you between 20-50%. Just like divorce attorneys, mediators charge by the hour, however mediation takes less time than a court battle (6-8 weeks rather than 6-12 months). When you work with AMS Mediation to settle your divorce, you will spend a total of approximately $4000. The team at AMS Mediation understands that you are ready to move forward but may have concerns about the financial impact of divorce. We can answer your questions about the process and make sure that you are comfortable with the process every step of the way.
Divorce mediation offers you a financial savings and it also very often provides emotional relief as well. The foundation of mediation is compromise and cooperation. Your mediation will empower you and your spouse to find areas of common ground, which can provide closure for you as you end this chapter of your life. A long, contentious court battle with opposing lawyers can do just the opposite.
