The Timeline for Divorce Mediation

September 18, 2016

Divorce Mediation MNWhat many people don’t know when they begin the divorce process is that they don’t have to go to court to settle their divorce. In fact, most divorces never reach the courts, simply because they can be easily resolved in mediation, saving couples money and time, and helping them begin their new lives as soon as possible. At Johnson Mediation, we provide divorce mediation services to Minnesota couples in the Chanhassen, MN area, helping couples work through the smallest details and the largest disputes of their divorces. If you’re looking into divorce mediation as a way to help you stay out of the court system, our divorce mediators can help you finalize your divorce in a matter of months, meeting with you for 3-4 mediation sessions over a number of weeks to a month to nail down every tiny detail of your divorce. Once we’re finished with the mediation process, working through any disputes, we’ll move on to the review process before filing your divorce agreement with the court and waiting for an approval by a judge.

Comprehensive Divorce Mediation Services

The reason that divorce mediations usually take about a month to complete has to do with the complex nature of a divorce. There are several aspects of a divorce that must be agreed upon in order for a divorce to be considered legally equitable and binding by a judge, all of which are complicated and often spark heated debate among divorcing couples. Divorce mediators will help you come to an agreement on all matters of your divorce, including the separation of property/assets and debts, spousal support/alimony, child support, and parenting plans/child custody. When you enter the mediation process, all of these elements of your divorce must be discussed at length, which typically requires 3-4 two-hour mediation sessions for you and your spouse to discuss with your mediators how to arrange the most equitable divorce possible that will allow each party to begin their independent life as quickly and easily as possible.

Faster, Cheaper Divorce with Divorce Mediation

When you begin the divorce process, the last thing you want is to draw out your divorce, spending a year getting through the court system and coming to an agreement that could have been reached in a matter of weeks or months. That’s why at Johnson Mediation, we always recommend divorce mediation for even the messiest divorces. No matter how little you and your spouse agree on or how complicated your divorce will be, divorce mediation will cost you less, take less of your time, and be much less stressful and painful than an adversarial court divorce. Our Chanhassen, MN divorce mediators will help you work through the finer points of your divorce, create an equitable divorce agreement, and have your divorce finalized within a matter of months, helping you move on. Avoid unnecessary conflict and costs, and contact our divorce mediators today at 952-401-7599 or to begin your divorce mediation process.
