Divorce Mediation During COVID-19We are living through extraordinary times. With social division and economic uncertainty, it is safe to say that nearly all of us are feeling more than the usual level of stress. It might be easier if these added stressors were balanced out by less stress in other aspects of life, but sadly, life does not usually work that way. While the global pandemic has forced massive changes to our economic and social systems, some of us are still having to deal with the realities of a relationship that is headed to divorce. AMS Mediation is doing all we can to help you find solutions and balance during this difficult time.

Divorce Mediation Support Services in MN

You may not be able to avoid the pain and stress of divorce during this stressful time, but you can trust that using our divorce mediation services will reduce the negative impact of divorce on you, your spouse, your children, and others who are affected by your decision to end your marriage. Divorce mediation is an effective alternative to the traditional court-based divorce processes. In fact, divorce mediation is the result of the court system’s recognition that a better system was needed. In Minnesota, the courts actually require you to try mediation before litigation.

Divorce mediation started as a supplemental service to the courts. Providing an alternative to the courts freed up precious docket time and was an acknowledgment that many divorce proceedings were simple enough to not need the resources provided by the court system. As divorce mediation developed, however, the courts have also recognized that divorce mediators are fully capable of facilitating even highly complex divorce and custody cases. Our divorce mediation services can be handled virtually during COVID-19 to protect you and your family from unnecessary risk.

Benefits of Using Divorce Mediation

The benefits of using a divorce mediator are even more immediate for couples seeking to end their marriages. To begin with, divorce mediation tends to cost a fraction of what a traditional court-based divorce would cost. Most mediated divorces involve only one mediator, as opposed to two adversarial attorneys (or two teams of attorneys), so the cost is curbed from the start. Divorce mediation is collaborative, meaning that we seek to find the most cooperative means of resolving conflict. That allows each spouse to move on to the next chapter of their life with less stress and minimal to no conflict remaining between them. Call us at 952.252.1492 to schedule a time for a free consultation to learn more about our divorce mediation services during COVID-19.
