Letting Go of MarriageWe hear so many stories of marriages ending in divorce, but not just ending in divorce—ending in contentious, mean-spirited, vengeful divorce. From social media confessions and accusations and public excoriations to celebrity exposes of truly horrible behavior, we have been conditioned to think of divorce as a visitation from the depths of hell.

Those extreme stories may be true for many people, but they do not have to be true for everyone going through a divorce. With help, support and assistance, a couple can realize that they are no longer compatible and would be happier and more fulfilled by ending their relationships. Marriage, by definition, is meant to create a strong intertwining of the couple’s emotional, psychological, social, and financial resources. Marriage connects nearly all aspects of one individual’s life to another individual’s life, and the process of divorce requires a conscious and often tedious separation of those things. If you are lucky enough to be separating from a partner with whom animosity and conflict exist at relatively low levels, AMS Mediation may be your best option as you enter the divorce process.

Amber Serwat offers these qualities in abundance. Amber will provide everything from early assessment of best options to more integral insights about how to work through more complex issues that all couples inevitably develop.
