Divorce is undoubtedly one of the most painful and difficult experiences of a person’s life. It is consistently described as one of the five most stressful major life events. Finding a way to navigate the divorce process that minimizes additional stress for you and your family is critical. Divorce Mediation offers divorcing couples a way to solve common issues in a divorce including child custody, child/spousal support, division of property and developing a parenting plan. These issues can very often be settled with the professional assistance of a divorce mediator, without having to withstand a lengthy, stressful and costly court battle. AMS Mediation of Burnsville, MN offers a wide variety of divorce mediation and parenting support services for those looking to move through the process of a divorce in a healthy and productive way.
Confidential, Private And Flexible Divorce Mediation Services
Minnesota confidentiality laws apply to divorce mediation, so you can be confident that the conversations and issues discussed during your mediation sessions will remain entirely confidential. MN Rule 114 actually was written to protect mediation discussions, communications and notes from being discovered or used as evidence in court. This law also prevents a mediator from being called as a witness in a trial. What happens in mediation is as confidential as settlement negotiations between lawyers and their clients and if you find that you need to subsequently go to court, your conversations cannot be used. The bottom line is that what you say in a mediation session cannot hurt you later, so you can be open and candid in order to make the best attempt possible to solve the most important issues in your divorce.
Mediation is also extremely flexible, allowing you and your divorcing spouse the opportunity for creative, out of the box thinking that the court system simply cannot manage. Your situation is unique and mediation can allow you to come up with solutions that will work for your family unit. Divorce mediation gives you and your spouse a safe environment to find solutions rather than focusing on the conflict of the past. Confidential divorce mediation is voluntary and does require that both parties agree to participate and is highly successful, with as many of 80-90% of mediation cases being settled without having to go a court battle.
