Professional Alternative Dispute Resolution ServicesWhen you are settling the terms of your divorce, deciding how to coordinate custody for your children and ultimately how to co-parent after divorce, you cannot go through the courts every time you hit a bump in the road. The Minnesota court system is backed up and it can take weeks if not months to get a hearing date, which can lead to increased conflict and stress as you wait to take your problem forward. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) services offer an option that does not involve the courtroom, a judge and lawyers to litigate the multiple issues surrounding your divorce. The Minnesota courts even encourage couples to try an ADR service before litigation because of the delays and costs associated with the litigation process.

Navigate Divorce Without Litigation

AMS Mediation provides families just like you with a variety of alternative dispute resolution services to help you make decisions about division of property, custody and spousal maintenance and child support. In fact, you can settle all of the terms of your divorce without ever walking into a courtroom. Alternative dispute resolution services are far less expensive than litigation and take less time, so you can move forward with your life more quickly. This allows you to achieve a fair and balanced resolution that is personalized to your family’s unique needs. Our alternative dispute resolution services include divorce mediation, custody mediation, post-divorce mediation, parenting consulting services, early neutral evaluations, custody evaluations, parenting time expeditor services and more.

Our goal is to help you navigate the divorce process with less stress and less of a financial burden. Amber Serwat has extensive experience as a Certified Neutral Divorce Mediator, Parenting Services, & ENE Dispute Resolution Counselor. She has helped many families through divorces even with high conflict. In addition to this professional experience, Amber has also been through her own divorce, so she understands firsthand the stress, the frustrations and the concerns about the impact on your children. She brings these professional and personal experiences together to help couples reach their goals when it comes to divorce.

Options For Settling The Terms Of Your Divorce

AMS Mediation believes that parents are the best judge of what should happen in a family’s life. Mediation and other ADR services allow parents to have the input they need, rather than leaving these important decisions in the hands of a judge.
