Mediation is an interactive process that is led by a neutral third party (a mediator) where you work to resolve a specific conflict. Mediation is highly effective and efficient way to solve a wide range of issues including settling the terms of a divorce, family disputes and civil disputes. Two of the most important benefits of mediation are the affordable cost and the fact that it takes much less time than litigation. AMS Mediation offers professional mediation services to those in Minnesota looking to find fair and equitable solutions to a personal issue. Amber Serwat is a professional mediator with more than a decade of experience with a wide variety of mediation services including:
- Divorce Mediation: Mediation is an effective way to resolve outstanding issues in your divorce including division of joint property, development of a child support plan, and determining whether child or spousal support is necessary. Your mediator will not make decisions for you and your divorcing spouse but empower you to do so.
- Family Mediation: Family mediation can help you and another family member resolve conflict of disputes. This can be related to custody, education, medical issues, adoption, or anything else related to your family and/or your children. Family mediation can resolve issues that would otherwise go to family court.
- Civil Mediation: Civil mediation is a tool used to settle non-criminal complaints between non family members. These can include anything that you would otherwise take to court.
Benefits of Mediation over Litigation
There are many important benefits to pursuing mediation before litigation. Mediation is significantly less expensive than a court battle, takes less time, and empowers you to make decisions that best meet your unique needs, rather than leaving these decisions in the hands of the court. Mediation is confidential and can lay a positive foundation for solving issues using cooperation, rather than following a win/lose model. Mediation also gives you the flexibility to come up with solutions that are creative and flexible.
