Divorce mediation is a tool that can help divorcing couples solve many important issues that are critical to navigating divorce successfully. Issues related to custody and child support are two of the most difficult issues couples with children face. The team at AMS Mediation specializes in helping families in the Shakopee, Bloomington, Richfield, Burnsville, Lakeville, Minnesota area solve problems, disagreements and important issues related to divorce.

Determining A Child Support Model That Works For You

There are many factors that go into decisions about child support and child custody. Sitting down with a trained mediator and information such as your income, expenses, budgets, and weekly schedules can be a way to find common ground and define priorities for your family moving forward. Amber Serwat of AMS Mediation focuses on helping families achieve solutions that are fair, put the children first, and conserve financial resources. Amber is familiar with Minnesota’s guidelines surrounding child support and will use the MN Child Support Calculator which takes into account income from both parties to determine a child support model.
Amber can explain this process, answer any questions that you might have and interpret the results and apply them to your unique situation. In some divorce cases, flexibility is necessary to achieve the goals set forth by the divorcing couple. Mediation is ideal for a couple who wants to find a creative solution to navigate issues of child support and child custody.

AMS Mediation, based in Coon Rapids, Minnesota, has been a leader in developing the techniques used in the divorce mediations involving children and demanding that such services offer the best support to those children. Attitudes about divorce are morphing. Divorcing couples no longer have to go into their divorce processes thinking that contentious and bitter court battles are the only options available to them, and children are the primary beneficiaries of that change. AMS Mediation works from the perspective that divorcing couples can work through many, if not all, of their conflicts, and thus each member of the divorcing couple can free themselves of the negative emotional responses to each other that led to their decision to divorce. Lifelong conflict with your ex-spouse does not have to be inevitable.
