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.
