Divorce After COVID-19Divorce rates have taken a nosedive during the pandemic as families have had to juggle a new life with COVID restrictions, financial/job uncertainty, children completing school from home and health related concerns. We will not know for some time whether this is a trend that will continue or if divorce rates will bounce back once the pandemic is in our rearview mirror. Some experts predict that divorce rates will increase steadily over the next few months as couples determine that they can no longer live under the same roof. The last 15-20 months have forced families to spend much more time at home and interact in new ways. For some couples, this may be a very positive thing, and for others, it may simply reinforce that it is time for the relationship to end. Has the conflict and tension in your marriage increased? Has this time provided clarity about your future as a family?

Divorce Mediation Services in Minnesota

As restrictions lift and life slowly gets back to normal, couples are facing some big life decisions. In many cases, divorce may have been an option considered before the pandemic, but these last months in quarantine may have simply amplified the problems. AMS Mediation specializes in offering divorce mediation services to couples who have decided that they want to divorce but who may not want to navigate the traditional court process. Mediation can be completed virtually or in person depending on your preference.

Divorce mediation allows you to settle the terms of your divorce without a lengthy and costly court battle. You get to control the outcome and work with your mediator and your ex to come up with a solution that works for the unique circumstances present in your family. If you share children, you can create a parenting plan together that outlines how you will share custody. You can also develop a plan about how you would like to divide your joint property, belongings and assets, all with the guidance and support of a trained mediator. Mediation can reduce the overall conflict during divorce rather than increase it.

Finding Support During Divorce

There are many different factors that determine whether you and your spouse will stay together or split up. No matter what you decide, you should have the resources and support that you need to navigate the process with less stress and financial burden. For more information about our mediation services or to schedule a time for a free consultation, call us today at 952-252-1492.
