What is the Best Way to Solve Parenting Issues after Divorce?

Most people going into a divorce think that once the divorce is final, they go their separate ways and no longer have to interact regularly. However, this may not actually be the case, especially if you and your ex share children. While your divorce marks the end of your marriage, it also marks the beginning of a new phase of your relationship. Parenting problems and issues often surface after a divorce is final and mediation is an ideal way to find solutions, without going through the court system. In fact, the court system is simply not setup to manage all of the problems that can come up for a family after a divorce. AMS Mediation specializes in post-divorce mediation and can help you resolve issues if you have recently filed for divorce or even if you have been divorced for years.
