There is no denying how difficult the divorce process is and arguably, it is impossible to understand the complexities and nuances without having gone through it personally.  One of the most important things to determine once you and your spouse decide to separate is the avenue you wish to pursue to settle important aspects of your divorce like custody of your children, child/spousal support and how to divide up your assets.  Amber Serwat of AMS Mediation has significant experience as a divorce mediator, and would be happy to work with you to ensure a more amicable divorce for you and your partner.

Divorce Mediation Versus A Court Battle

Determining whether you will let the court system make these decisions or whether you would prefer a more cooperative approach like divorce mediation is a critical decision that you should make early that has huge implications about the course of your divorce.  Amber Serwat of AMS Mediation has been through an adversarial divorce personally and understands the difficulty, complexity and emotion involved.  She has used that experience to launch and lead her successful divorce mediation company, which can provide you with a way to take control over your divorce and move forward in a healthy direction.

AMS Mediation offers comprehensive, supportive, professional divorce mediation services for those in the Minnesota area looking to find a less adversarial approach to divorce.  Divorce mediation can empower you to make the best possible decisions for you and your family.  No one knows your personal situation better than you and your spouse and no one is in a better position to set the priorities and decide how the big decisions should be made. Leaving this power to the court is only going to further alienate you from your spouse, increase the conflict and the animosity.  In contrast, mediation actually sets a positive tone for all of the necessary  communication after the divorce.  After all, the divorce settlement is just the beginning of a new phase of your relationship.

Parenting Your Children Amicably

If you have children and are moving toward a divorce, co-parenting successfully is quite possibly the most difficult aspect of a divorce.  AMS Mediation can help you focus on putting your children first and coming up with a parenting plan and a parenting time schedule that meets everyone’s needs.  The team at AMS Mediation is focused on a client-centered process that empowers individuals to achieve fair, affordable, and workable solutions for their unique needs.
