Keep your Divorce out of the Courtroom in Minnesota

May 22, 2015

Divorce Mediation MN“Moving on doesn’t mean that you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what happened and continue living.”

Much like this quote, just because you get a divorce does not mean it has to be settled in a drawn out, horrific courtroom. Johnson Mediation provides couples in all different stages of divorce a safe and constructive environment for all couples to resolve their disputes and obtain the best possible outcomes for themselves and their families.

The Court System

Those that have been through a courtroom divorce will most likely tell you to do everything possible to avoid it. The court system can be taxing. Not only does your money go down the drain from court fees, lawyers, and legal documents, but it drains you emotionally and physically. If you have family or children that are affected by your divorce, the last thing you would want to do is drag them through this emotional and financial roller coaster that typically ends in at least one party being hurt in the process. The fact is, at one point in time, the person you married relied on you as much as you did them. How the two of you work it out should not be up to a stranger, it should be together. Therefore, Johnson Mediation is the perfect place to sort out all of these issues.

Divorce Mediation

Just because you agree to divorce mediation does not necessarily mean that you will get along and love one another again. Mediation allows separated and divorcing couples to take control of planning their lives without each other. It gives couples an environment to make good decisions about both of their futures. This is especially important for those with children who will eventually be making joint decisions even after the divorce.

The Mediation Process

Typically lasting 2 hours long in a typical series of 3 or 4 sessions, the participants and the mediator will identify the issues that need resolution together and look over all the relevant data and paperwork necessary to that issue. Once all these issues are resolved and agreed upon by both parties, the mediator documents the agreements for review with the participants and their attorneys (if they have one).

Not only is this process a lot cheaper than going to court, it can prevent a lot more pain and agony for both parties down the road. Settle your divorce out of the Minnesota Court System.
