divorce-support-services-for-individuals-in-afton-mnIt’s not uncommon for the divorce process to work better for one person and not so well for another. We all have our own specific challenges, and when it comes to divorce, this could not be more true. Every divorce is different because the circumstances and the individuals involved in every divorce are often drastically different. Although divorce mediation often works for divorcing couples, there are others who prefer – or have to – use divorce attorneys to get through their divorce. And yet, these aren’t your only options. If you and your spouse can’t work through a divorce together, for any reason, you have options. With Lesa Koski, you can find divorce support services outside of joint mediation with your spouse. That means that you can work one-on-one with a mediator who will provide you with legal and emotional support so that you can get through your divorce on level footing and with a plan for your future. Offering divorce support services for individuals in Afton, Lake Elmo, Lakeland, Maplewood, North St. Paul and Oakdale, MN, Lesa Koski can help you find relief from your divorce.

Divorce Support VS Divorce Mediation

When you’re working with a divorce mediator through typical mediation, you’d be attending multiple sessions with your spouse and the mediator. A mediator acts as a neutral third party, not advocating for you or your spouse. Instead, a mediator will work to create compromise by sparking conversation about the likely legal outcomes of your case. If for some reason one party is unable to attend mediation, is physically incapable of attending these meetings, is not ready to approach the divorce through mediation, or otherwise, we can provide individual divorce support so that the divorce process can still move forward. This means providing legal guidance to one party in a divorce as well as supporting the development of future goals. Whomever is invested in moving forward and creating a divorce agreement is welcome to make use of our divorce support services when mediation is not an option.

Legal and Emotional Divorce Support

So what exactly is “divorce support?” Still working with a divorce mediator, you’ll do more than talk about the divorce process. When you go through typical mediation, you and your spouse come to agreements about issues like division of property, child custody and support, and alimony, and these issues can and often are still addressed during divorce support sessions. However, you will also have the chance to talk to a divorce mediator about life after your divorce as well as get help making it through your divorce. A mediator can support you in creating goals for after your divorce and making sure you’re moving forward in a healthy way after your divorce.
