For many couples going through a divorce, it is easy to jump to the conclusion that the process is complete once the divorce papers are signed. However, especially if you and your spouse share children, many additional issues come up well after divorce that must be resolved. When you come up with your initial divorce settlement, it is based on life as it stands at that point in time. But, as time passes, circumstances may change for you, for your children and for your ex. AMS Mediation specializes in cost effective mediation in Minnesota after divorce that can help you resolve any number of issues that come up after your divorce papers are signed, so that you do not have to go to court.
Common issues After a Divorce is Finalized Include:
● Changes to a child custody arrangement: As your children age, their needs, preferences and schedules change and your custody agreement must be able to be changed when needed to meet new needs. The court system cannot accommodate all of the changes that need to be made over the course of your children’s lives. You or your former spouse may also need to relocate because of a job change, causing a change to visitation and/or custody. Mediations allows you to discuss this with your former spouse and agree on updates to your agreement without having to take your case to court.
● New relationships: After you divorce, you and/or your ex may begin to date or become serious with a new partner. This can also cause changes for the children you share for a wide variety of reasons. Mediation is an excellent forum for discussing how to manage blended families and new marriages in respectful way.
● Changes to jobs and income that impact income: When you settle your divorce, you may have come to an agreement about alimony or spousal maintenance payments. Over time, employment and education may change, resulting in the need to make adjustments to spousal maintenance or child support agreements. AMS Mediation can help you adjust these agreements when these changes occur.
