Getting through a divorce can be extremely difficult for anyone, especially when there are children involved or when you’re looking to avoid an in-court divorce. If you’re facing a particularly stressful divorce, or if you and your spouse are having difficulties understanding the divorce process or how to get through legal and non-legal divorce issues, Amber M. Serwat Mediation can help you. With our Burnsville, MN family law basics divorce education classes, we’ll help you navigate the common legal problems in divorce cases while offering mental and emotional support to separating parents. Although the legal divorce process can be difficult to understand or work through on your own, including the issues involved in divorce cases that involve children, with our divorce education classes, we can help you understand common legal concerns of divorce and decide how you can make your divorce go more smoothly for you and your family.

Understanding the Legal Process of Divorce

The legal process of divorce is complicated for anyone who isn’t a divorce lawyer or divorce counselor. If you’ve never experienced a divorce before, and especially if you’re left feeling emotionally or mentally removed from the situation, you’ll likely find it exceptionally difficult to understand on your own how best to proceed in a divorce. When it comes to the legal issues of a divorce, you have to consider the most important elements of a divorce and how those elements will play out in your own divorce. These include spousal and child support, property division, and child custody, all issues that are central components of a divorce and are all difficult to manage on your own without any background in the legal process of a divorce. Lucky for you, we’ll help make sure that you understand your rights and limitations in property division, child and spousal support, and parenting plans, ensuring that you and  your spouse understand what it means to come to a fair divorce agreement. We’ll also provide early neutral evaluations to assess the possible outcomes of your divorce if it proceeds to court, and help you understand your legal process options for your divorce.

Legal and Non-Legal Divorce Issues

While dealing with the legal divorce issues is an important part of getting through your divorce, legal challenges won’t be the only obstacles keeping you from having a smooth divorce. There are non-legal divorce issues that countless people go through when entering into a divorce, often pertaining to children or emotional ramifications of a divorce. That’s why we offer divorce education classes that cover topics like grieving and stress, domestic violence and complicating divorce factors, and emotional responses to divorce to help divorcing couples. We also offer divorce education classes to help separating parents, which cover the impact of divorce on children, the needs of children in different age groups, how to talk to children about divorce, healthy separated parent environments, and communicating effectively with children and former spouses following a divorce.
