Alternative Dispute Resolution Services In 2022The Minnesota court system encourages couples who are seeking a divorce to use an alternative dispute resolution service before proceeding through the traditional court system. This is largely because the courts are backed up with cases and schedules are very difficult to coordinate between the court and divorce lawyers. An alternative dispute resolution service like divorce mediation can be a highly effective way to resolve all issues between the two parties, without a lengthy, expensive and emotionally difficult court battle.

Settle Your Divorce Without Litigation

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services can be used for settling the terms of a divorce, for determining child custody arrangements and schedules, and co-parenting separately. You can complete all of these fairly complex tasks without ever setting foot in a courtroom. In addition, ADR services are considerably less expensive than litigation, take less time and allow families to move forward with their lives more quickly. AMS Mediation offers a wide range of Alternative Dispute Resolution services for families in the Burnsville, Minnesota area. We currently offer both in person and virtual services, so you do not even have to leave your home!

Our team at AMS Mediation is highly skilled and experienced in helping two opposing parties find common ground and ultimately solutions. We understand how difficult divorce and co-parenting can be for everyone involved. While we do not make the decisions for your family, we empower you to have positive and productive discussions and guide you through the divorce and/or custody process. We strive to help you achieve fair, affordable and workable solutions that are tailored to your unique set of circumstances. No two relationships are alike – and no two settlements are the same. We sit down with you and learn about your situation, what you think will be the most difficult things to settle and what you think might be relatively simple. We will come up with a plan for alternative mediation that will work best for you and your family.
