Parenting Consultant Mediation Services in MN

June 9, 2016

Parenting Consultant MNJohnson Mediation provides comprehensive mediation services to those in the Chanhassen, MN area.  One specific area of focus is in the role of Parenting Consultant, which helps a divorcing couple come to an agreement on complex and difficult issues such as Parenting Time schedules, discipline and parenting style, participation in extracurricular activities and important financial issues related to the children. Parenting Consulting goes hand-in-hand with divorce mediation and is specific to helping divorcing parents prioritize the long-term health and well-being of the children who are also affected by their decision to seek divorce.

Origin of The Parenting Consultant In Minnesota

Parenting Consulting is not a service that is court-mandated or court-created.  Instead, it is a service that was developed by a number of Minnesota-based consultants working in the arena of Minnesota family dispute.  As a result of the work of this consortium of psychologists and mediation experts, divorcing couples in Minnesota have an alternative to the more traditional and, some would say, more rigid approach to issues such as child custody, parenting time (which is more commonly known as visitation), school concerns, and approaches to the children’s health care issues.  And, if this method does not result in a solution that is agreeable to both parties, one or both of the parties can still go to court to try to have the decision changed.

Comprehensive Mediation Services

If you have made the decision to seek a divorce from your spouse, and you believe you have the capacity to move through the divorce process and resolve conflicts that you have with your spouse, you should consider seeking the help of Johnson Mediation.  Johnson Mediation can help you and your divorcing spouse find areas of common agreement and philosophical overlap so that conflicts can be addressed openly and honestly, and with a greater potential for healthy resolution.  This kind of indication is all the more important when children are involved and can help you, your ex-spouse and your children move forward in a positive and healthy way.

If you have children, you almost certainly understand that your own stress is likely greater as you proceed through your divorce process.  In addition to the unique issues that exist between you and your spouse, you are likely acutely aware of the impact the divorce is having on your children.  Couples who use the more traditional court system to finalize their divorce, or who employ lawyers whose motivations tend to be more competitive, are subtly encouraged to indulge in their feelings of conflict.

Navigating A Divorce With Less Conflict
Johnson Mediation seeks to help you and your divorcing spouse find common ground through comprehensive mediation & parenting consulting.  When children are involved, this principle is of vital importance.  Children are more sensitive to adult conflict and have a harder time understanding the implications of their parents’ fighting.  If parental conflict can be reduced or eliminated, your children are much more likely to emerge from the divorce process healthier, happier, and resilient.  And Johnson Mediation is exceptionally well qualified to help you get there.  Call (952) 401-7599 for more information or to schedule a time to meet with our team.
