When you and your spouse decide to separate or divorce, your family dynamic changes immediately. Divorce is extremely painful and a stressful time for all involved. Your children need strong family relationships and support to deal with this significant change. It is critical, for example, for children to maintain their primary relationships with both parents and with extended family such as grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. So, while it may be tempting to want to cut ties after a divorce, this can make the transition even harder on the rest of your family. Family mediation is an excellent way to actually resolve some of the issues that are causing conflict so that your family can move through divorce in a healthy way while minimizing overall stress. Amber Serwat is a trusted family mediator in Burnsville, MN who specializes in helping families through intense conflict without having to go to court.

The pain of divorce cannot be overstated. This pain is felt by all members of a family in different ways. Amber Serwat understands this pain personally, as she too has been through a divorce. She is a trained family mediator, divorce coach, parenting consultant, custody evaluator, and early neutral evaluator. Her personal and professional experience makes her uniquely qualified to help your family navigate a separation, divorce or other family conflict. Mediation can empower the adults in the relationship to make decisions that put the needs of your family first, rather than entrusting this to a judge and attorneys.
Another cause of stress in the family mediation process is very often finances. Amber Serwat understands this as well and works to make sure that the mediation process is as simple, straightforward and financially efficient as possible. Mediation is far less expensive than litigation and takes less time as well. Amber can also help you think through how your finances will work once a divorce is final.
