Divorce mediation is a highly effective way to settle the terms of a divorce without costly litigation. It gives you and your divorcing spouse the power to make the important decisions regarding your divorce in a way that works best for you and your family. The divorce mediation process takes less time than a court battle and costs significantly less, so it can reduce the overall stress of the process. One thing that you may not realize about the mediation process is that you and your spouse can still choose to have an attorney represent you in the mediation process as well. While it is not required, hiring an attorney for divorce mediation can help you achieve a favorable outcome. Lesa Koski is a family lawyer who can represent you during the mediation process if you decide that you need a lawyer.

Attorney for Divorce Mediation
As your attorney for divorce mediation, Lesa can help you develop a plan for dividing your joint property including your assets and debts. She will help you develop a parenting plan (also known as a custody agreement) and help you negotiate child and/or spousal support. She can explain how Minnesota law applies in your case and your best path forward given your unique situation. As your divorce mediation lawyer, Lesa can guide you through the entire legal process of mediation and then help you make sure that the legal agreement that you make with your divorcing spouse is filed appropriately with the court.
