When life makes itself known in ways that we would not necessarily choose—the death of a loved-one, loss of your job, a car accident, et cetera—what helps us is not just the processes that help to resolve the problem, but empathy offered by other human beings. Empathy is arguably the most important human connector, but also the quality we take most for granted. In other words, we tend to not notice it much when it’s present, but we certainly notice when we need it and it’s not present.
Along with the death of loved-ones, job loss, and car accidents, one of the biggest and most common stressors in our lives is divorce. It is still sadly true that more than half of all marriages in the United States end in divorce. If you are soon to experience divorce, or are currently going through the process, it is in your best interest to recognize that you can reasonably expect the system to advocate on your behalf by providing you with, at the very least, empathy.
Not all divorce lawyers are hard-wired to consider empathy an essential component in their work. But Amber Serwat of AMS Mediation works from the perspective that empathizing with her clients—as opposed to cynically viewing them as mere means of mining income—is necessary not just to reach resolution but to be a positive force in the world. Amber Serwat has experienced divorce herself and therefore has an experiential perspective on what it means to go through what you are going through. That is empathy.
Many Benefits Of Mediation
If you choose mediated divorce over the more conventional and traditional court processes, you should consider seeking the assistance of AMS Mediation. In doing so, you will find that you are working with someone who wants to understand your unique perspective, your fears, your anxieties, and your long-term well-being.
AMS Mediation prioritizes the most positive outcome for all parties involved in the divorce, truly seeking to facilitate the most positive possible outcome for all family members. As a result, the more familiar adversarial approach is measured against the possibilities of finding solutions that work well for divorcing spouses and their children. In addition to comprehensive mediation services, AMS offers help establishing a workable parenting plan, and offers divorce and parenting education courses that can help you understand the nuances of this difficult process on every member of your family.
AMS Mediation Understands Divorce and Can Help You Through It
Amber Serwat is able to provide this kind of service because she knows the territory. Not all divorce attorneys, and not all divorce mediators, are able to offer the same kind of assurance. So if you are going through a divorce, take the leap to recognize your need for empathy and consider seeking the services of AMS Mediation.
