If you have recently been through a divorce, you already know that even the best, most thoughtful, and detailed parenting plans cannot account for every potential change or issue that can come up weeks, months or even years after it is finalized. A parenting plan (also known as a custody agreement) is a guide for how your children will split their time between you and your ex-spouse. But, there are times when issues come up that require a change to the schedule. If these scheduling changes are becoming a routine occurrence, you might need some help navigating these changes without increasing conflict. Mediation is ideal for helping you and your ex-spouse come to an agreement on many post-divorce issues like schedule changes. AMS Mediation of Burnsville, MN specializes in helping families navigate issues that arise after a divorce is final.

Post-Divorce Mediation Burnsville

Even if you went through the court system to finalize your divorce, mediation can be used after your divorce is final so that you can avoid spending additional time in court. The court system is simply not set up to be able to manage all of the routine issues that come up after a divorce. Mediation can help you find solutions to these important issues without tying up the court system. Mediation is faster and less expensive as well. It is impossible to anticipate all of the potential changes that may need to be made to your parenting agreement, and mediation offers you an excellent starting point for solving these issues with less overall conflict.

Amber Serwat, of AMS Mediation will serve as neutral third party who can review your current parenting plan, listen to the issues that have arisen since it was finalized and help you find common ground and a new set of guidelines for you, your ex and your kids moving forward. And, if it turns out that your custody agreement needs to be amended, Amber can help with that process and will make sure that it is properly filed with the necessary Minnesota legal system.

Co-Parenting After Divorce

Co-parenting after a divorce can be challenging, especially if you and your ex-spouse have difficulty communicating. AMS Mediation can help ease this tension and help you focus on solutions that will work for your entire family. So, when issues come up that need to be resolved, call our team at 952.252.1492 to schedule a time to sit down with Amber and determine if post-divorce mediation might work for you.
