Stress Relationships And Divorce The stress experienced by our society over the last two years may not be unprecedented, but it has been long enough ago that the world went through such sustained strife that it is unlikely anyone alive today was around to experience it. While the stress of navigating a global pandemic may not be unprecedented, what we are all experiencing now is unquestionably difficult. A casualty of this stress can be our relationships, and relationships that are based on depth of connection are often the ones that suffer the most. It makes sense–relationships based on connection have the most to lose, so they tend to be the most vulnerable. It stands to reason that the marital relationship is uniquely vulnerable. AMS Mediation is here for people whose marital relationships can no longer be sustained.

Divorce Mediation In 2022

Divorce is almost never painless but participating in divorce mediation as a means of ending a marriage can decrease the pain of divorce. AMS has provided divorce mediation services for the people of Minnesota for years, and our track record is characterized by helping couples find answers to questions and solutions to problems that have led them to the conclusion that they should no longer be married. Finding common ground is one of our areas of expertise, and we have found that when divorcing couples identify common ground, the stress of divorce is decreased.

Mediated divorce is every bit as legal as divorces that are conducted through the court system. For couples who have relatively simple finances and who have maintained an ability to work through disagreements, even begrudgingly, to find common ground, divorce mediation is very often a far more desirable solution. All divorce mediators must have deep knowledge of Minnesota divorce law, which is both expansive and full of nuance. The owner of AMS Mediation and a highly skilled mediator, Amber Serwat, is an expert in Minnesota divorce law whose interpersonal skills make her a highly sought-after divorce mediator.

The changes that have taken place in our society since the start of the pandemic have shifted most of our services to virtual meetings. Our clients receive the same care and compassion that characterized our services prior to the pandemic. If you and your spouse have decided that it is time to end your marriage, divorce mediation is an important option to consider. Not only is it a more convenient option than divorcing through the courts, it also tends to be significantly less expensive.
