Divorce and InfidelityAMS Mediation of Burnsville, Minnesota, provides divorce support for those navigating a divorce, regardless of the cause.  Divorce Mediation is increasingly being used by couples who are seeking divorce because it takes less time and is less expensive than traditional court-based divorce proceedings.  When a couple is seeking divorce because one or both members have committed adultery, working with AMS Mediation may be exactly what the couple needs in order to minimize the long-term damage caused by the infidelity. 

Divorce Mediation Minnesota

In Minnesota, which is a no-fault divorce state, the definition of ‘adultery’ is extremely outdated.  The definition still holds that adultery occurs only when a married woman is unfaithful to her husband.  This definition does not take into consideration the possibility of a man being unfaithful to his wife, nor of the new legal status of same-sex marriage.  AMS Mediation, however, can help you navigate the specific intricacies of Minnesota law—and can help you and your ex-spouse work through many other emotional and logistical aspects of the divorce process including child support, parenting time and division of property.  Our team has experience working with couples who are seeking divorce after infidelity and our impartial input can help find common ground, even in the most difficult circumstances.

When divorce is sought because one member of the couple has engaged in infidelity, the member of the couple who has been hurt by their spouse’s infidelity is likely to experience a wide range of difficult emotions.  That person is likely to feel betrayed by their cheating partner, which could lead to anger, sadness, depression, and other more subtle, but no less complicated emotions.  AMS Mediation has the training and personal experience to help you gain greater understanding of those complex emotional responses.  On a personal, psychological level, gaining this greater insight can prepare you to heal so that you can move on with your life sooner than later.
