developing a parenting planAMS Mediation of Burnsville, Minnesota, can provide you with much-needed assistance with developing a parenting plan in preparation for, and in the aftermath of, divorce.  For most people who are in the midst of divorce or dealing with the fallout of emotions in the weeks, months, and sometimes years after divorce the last thing you will want to deal with are surprises.  Creating a Parenting Plan with the help of AMS Mediation, and in cooperation with your ex-spouse, can help to eliminate the surprises that cause stress, anxiety, and delays in moving on from your divorce.

Developing A Comprehensive Parenting Plan

AMS Mediation provides a service none of us ever get into marriage believing we will need.  But when we find that we do need this kind of service, AMS Mediation proves just how valuable it can be to have access to it.  And as you and your ex-spouse begin to adjust to your lives independent of each other, having the help of an impartial third-party to mediate differences of opinion regarding how you will parent your child or children after your divorce can be indispensable.

Creating a Parenting Time Schedule

When you shared a home with your now-ex-spouse, you might have found it less complicated, if not easy, to create a schedule for all of the responsibilities and activities in which you and your children were involved.  At the very least, your spouse was nearby and therefore probably easier to communicate with.  But when you find yourselves living in different places, the necessity of creating a system that works for both of you, and which minimizes the transitional difficulty for your children, becomes greater.  AMS Mediation provides expert advice in helping you determine what will work for your respective schedules, including unforeseen disagreements about how and when you each spend time with your children.  Ironing out exchanges between parents make the transitions easier for the children as well.

Parenting Plans Address Legal Custody Issues And More

Divorce cases often involve questions of legal custody.  AMS Mediation empowers you to help define the issues and work together to address any remaining questions about custody and visitation.  As you can imagine, such issues can produce very strong feelings in former spouses, especially because they involve the custody of their children.  But with the help of AMS Mediation, you are more likely to find yourself able to prioritize the welfare of your children and find common ground.

AMS Mediation can also help you determine how you and your ex-spouse will work together to answer other important questions, like how to handle your children’s medical issues, outstanding questions about insurance coverage, to the best means of addressing specific medical issues.  AMS Mediation will help you find workable solutions to all types of co-parenting issues that arise during and after a divorce.  To partner with our team for the benefit of your family, call 952-252-1492 today.
