Minnesota Divorce Mediation Myths

April 16, 2015

Divorce Mediation Myths and FactsGoing through a divorce can be one of the most difficult times of your life. Often times divorce brings anger, conflict and other heightened emotions because of what is at stake. The legal system assumes that the couple going through a divorce is in the midst of conflict that cannot be resolved. That is not always the case. Some divorces can be less intense from start to finish. An alternative option for handling a divorce is through the use of a divorce mediator. Through this route, individuals going through a divorce are given more control in preparing their lives for the future. Additionally, the mediation occurs in a much more relaxed environment than the courtroom. If you are going through a divorce and are interested in a more peaceful way to make the decisions, divorce mediation may be for you. If you live in Minnesota, Johnson Mediation is eager to partner with you through the divorce mediation process.

Myths Regarding Mediation:

  • Mediation Cannot Handle Complicated DivorcesFALSE! Mediation can be used to settle any type of divorce whether it be calm and collected or intense and complicated. Johnson Mediation allows you to bring in any 3rd party providers into the mediation sessions such as your accountant, appraiser, attorney or financial planner.
  • Mediation Isn’t the Best Route With A High Conflict DivorceFALSE! Our dedicated mediators go through intense training to learn how to connect and serve as a resource to couples that may be angry and not willing to work together on decisions. Once couples understand that mediation keeps more control on your side, is a more peaceful route to handle a divorce especially when kids are involved, and is less expensive than going through the court system, they tend to open up to the process.
  • Mediation Is Not a Cost SaverFALSE! Mediation is a much more affordable option for couples as common litigation divorces can cost between 2 and 10 times more than the mediation process.

Other Mediation Benefits

Our divorce mediation services also help individuals work through some of the tougher points of a break up. For instance, child support and the amount of time each parent gets to have with the kids can be handled peacefully. Dividing up property is another service that mediation typically works well for. You will be amazed with how much easier the process will go if you are just willing to respect each other and work together cordially to keep everyone’s best interests in mind.
