Why Should I Consider Mediation For My Divorce?

When you said “I do,” to your spouse, you likely never imagined that–in what seems like just a blink of an eye– you would be faced with the idea of divorce.  Divorce is not something entered into lightly and rarely, if ever, without intense emotion.  Litigating a divorce through the court system only exacerbates an already potentially adversarial relationship and highlights all of the areas of disagreement between the divorcing couple.  Divorce Mediation has become a popular and less adversarial option for couples settling a divorce.  If you and your spouse are considering your options for divorce, AMS Mediation of Burnsville, MN can help you navigate your divorce while keeping in mind the need to conserve financial resources and, if you have children, to develop a healthy parenting partnership, putting the children’s needs first.
