Any major changes in one’s marital status can produce stress.  When a married couple decides to separate or, more finally, divorce, the impact on the two members of the couple is undeniably stressful and difficult.  AMS Mediation of Burnsville, Minnesota, understands the wide variety of emotional and psychological responses associated with divorce, and can provide meaningful assistance to both members of the divorcing couple.  AMS Mediation has made a compelling case for mediated divorce, and has been providing excellent mediation services for divorcing couples for many years now.  Couples who have sought the services of AMS Mediation know that they have been treated with fairness and equity in hopes of reaching the best possible solutions for all involved.

AMS Mediation has extensive experience and a proven track-record of ensuring that children of divorcing couples are prioritized in the mediation process.  AMS Mediation understands that children lack context, not sensitivity, with regard to matters affecting their adult parents.  A consequence of this combination is that children receive much, if not all, of the emotional strain of divorce, but lack the life experience and emotional and psychological capacity to understand it in a way that would allow them to reduce their stress.  It is because of this combination that children so often blame themselves for their parents’ decision to seek divorce.

Parenting Mediation Services Burnsville MN

When you seek the help of a qualified, professional divorce or parenting mediator such as AMS Mediation, you are choosing a more direct and peaceful path to resolving the issues between you and your spouse.  Mediation can help you more effectively solve issues such as child custody (ie. development of a parenting plan), child/spousal support and division of property.  Doing so via mediation typically costs less and results in more satisfying resolution for the divorcing couple.  AMS Mediation values the process of ensuring that children are prioritized in each decision.  When emotions run high, and especially when one’s divorcing spouse stirs one’s anger, it is often extremely difficult to recognize the impact of one’s anger on  children.  But AMS Mediation’s commitment means that children will not be forgotten in the mediation process.

Not many people are so selfish as to ever intentionally ignore their children’s experience with divorce.  AMS Mediation helps guarantee that the stress of divorce doesn’t cloud good people’s judgment.  AMS Mediation helps you actually mediate the time you spend with your children, instead of spinning your wheels by fighting over it.  Call 952-252-1492 for more information or to schedule a free one hour consultation.
