Most people going into a divorce think that once the divorce is final, they go their separate ways and no longer have to interact regularly. However, this may not actually be the case, especially if you and your ex share children. While your divorce marks the end of your marriage, it also marks the beginning of a new phase of your relationship. Parenting problems and issues often surface after a divorce is final and mediation is an ideal way to find solutions, without going through the court system. In fact, the court system is simply not setup to manage all of the problems that can come up for a family after a divorce. AMS Mediation specializes in post-divorce mediation and can help you resolve issues if you have recently filed for divorce or even if you have been divorced for years.

Benefits of Post-Divorce Mediation

If you and your ex-spouse had children together, you are connected as co-parents even after your divorce is final. And, as children grow up, mature, develop their own interests and opinions, your original parenting plan or custody agreement may not satisfy your evolving situation. Mediation allows you and your ex-spouse to come together after your divorce and settle important issues such as changes to a custody agreement or child support payment plan, decisions about a new school, the involvement of a new step-parent, or the potential move of one of the parents. Mediation allows you to have some control over the process and the potential solutions that will be considered, rather than leaving them in the hands of the court.

Solve Problems after a Divorce

Mediation also tends to minimize conflict instead of increasing it – and the flexibility about the process and the different types of solutions that can be found, can ease the stress of most any situation. And, mediation can be used repeatedly as issues come up that you and your ex-spouse need to resolve. AMS Mediation invests in our clients and can help provide you with comprehensive and individualized post-divorce mediation services that will meet your family’s unique needs.
