One of the most commonly asked questions of our mediation firm is whether mediation will work for a complicated divorce or one with significant conflict. The answer is YES. In fact, proceeding through the traditional court system can actually make a complicated divorce even more difficult and heighten the conflict already present. A court battle can last months, if not years and make an already contentious situation even worse. AMS Mediation of Burnsville, MN specializes in divorce mediation, even for the most complex situations and can help you and your divorcing spouse look toward a future of hope, rather than focusing on your painful past.
Benefits of Divorce Mediation
Mediation has many benefits. It is less expensive than a court battle, offering significant financial savings to a couple. In addition, mediation can ease the emotional burden of a divorce as well, empowering both parties to focus on the future, and their own priorities, rather than a battle. Mediation takes significantly less time than proceeding through the court, you can often settle your divorce in two or three 2 hour sessions. If you partner with AMS Mediation, you can expect our team to help you and your divorcing spouse settle all aspects of your divorce including:
- Division of property, assets and debts;
- Development of a parenting plan (also known as a custody arrangement);
- Determination of child and/or spousal support.
These are the most common (and complicated) issues tackled in divorce settlements whether you settle via the courts or mediation. A trained mediator can help you and your divorcing spouse come to agreement on each of these complex issues in positive and productive discussions that yield compromise.
