Navigating Divorce After The PandemicThe last few years have been difficult for many of us. Interpersonal relationships have been put under significant stress with the pandemic causing major changes to everyday life. You may have spent much more time at home with your immediate family and no time with other friends, colleagues and loved ones. Now that things are starting to get back to normal, many people are taking stock of their life, their goals and their future. For some, this means changing jobs. For others, this means getting back to the gym. And, for others, this means taking a close look at your close relationships to determine whether you are where you want to be.

Minnesota Divorce Mediation

Some families put a divorce on hold during the pandemic because of concerns about finances and health and putting your family through more stress during an already stressful time. In fact, divorce rates have increased in the last 12 months as pandemic restrictions have eased. If you are in a situation where divorce is looking like the next step for you and your spouse, consider divorce mediation. Mediation allows you to settle the terms of your divorce with less conflict, less stress, and less of a financial burden.

AMS Mediation offers client-centered divorce mediation services for families in Minnesota who are looking to settle your divorce without going through the traditional court system. We help you navigate the process by providing resources, information and by facilitating productive discussions with your ex about how you two want to divide your property and share custody. Mediation gives you the control over how your divorce is settled, rather than relying on divorce attorneys and a judge to make these big life decisions for you. Our goal is always to help you manage your divorce with less conflict and while building successful parenting partnerships that can last long after your divorce is final. This approach gives you the best chance of taking control of your life, protecting your children, and taking those first steps toward your future.

Benefits Of Divorce Mediation

Mediation can help you resolve very difficult issues, and it paves the way for improved communication and better interactions moving forward. Saving money and time can also decrease the overall stress of the divorce on all members of the family. If you want to learn more about the mediation process or find out if you think it might work for your situation, give AMS Mediation a call at 952-252-1492.
