Divorce is complicated and every divorce is different. If you are in the process of a divorce and have decided to pursue mediation as a mechanism for settling important issues like division of property, child custody and spousal maintenance, you might consider co-mediation. Co-mediation utilizes several experts to help you solve the most important and complex parts of your divorce. You and your divorcing spouse may benefit from having multiple perspectives and varying personality types to find areas of compromise in your case. Lesa Koski is a highly trained and experienced mediator that is available for co-mediation with couples in the Maplewood, Minnesota area.
Benefits of Co-Mediation
The benefits of mediation are numerous – it costs less than a court proceeding and takes less time. There are also important benefits for pursuing co-mediation. These benefits include:
● Co-mediators increase the likelihood of a connection between the professionals and the divorcing couple, which also increases the chances of success.
● Team approaches offer different ideas and perspectives which may prove valuable for finding areas of compromise.
● Co-mediators may bring different expertise – one can have a specific interest in the financial aspects of a divorce while another has extraordinary people skills. The combination of these strengths can improve the overall process.
● Sometimes having different gender, race or ethnicity can make one or the other participants more comfortable which also makes them more receptive to an open and honest discussion about the terms of the divorce.
