Divorce Attorney Alternative

Traditional court-based divorce can be enormously expensive, stressful and time consuming. It also tends to encourage animosity between divorcing people because lawyers tend to opt for an adversarial approach in order to maximize the benefit to their clients. AMS Mediation, however, offers a divorce attorney alternative. If you work with AMS Mediation to settle your divorce, you will be taking advantage of a new and important trend in divorce law, which is the use of mediation services rather than proceeding through the courts. Almost no one decides to get married with the idea that they will one day decide to get divorced. The fairy tale of love everlasting is a powerful symbol in our society, and most of us buy into it. It is, after all, an expression of hope that we enter into a relationship with the belief that it will last forever.

Mediation for Divorce

Deciding to end your marriage is a big decision that may be rooted in longstanding pain, conflict and sadness. No doubt, this was not the outcome for your marriage that you had hoped for. The fact remains that as you get ready to embark on the legal and logistical issues related to settling important (and complicated) issues like division of assets, debts and property, development of a parenting plan (sometimes known as a custody agreement) and payment of child and spousal support, you have an opportunity to minimize conflict, stress and even pain and move forward after your divorce in a more positive way. Divorce mediation is an opportunity to bring closure to your marriage without additional conflict, expense and stress. AMS Mediation can help you navigate this process in a productive way that lays a foundation for future co-parenting and cooperation.

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.
