If you and your partner are separating after being together for several years, you’ll likely face the challenge of splitting up your property fairly, including assets and debts acquired during your partnership. In addition, if there are children involved, a separation can become even more complicated, making it difficult for unmarried couples to reach an agreement about child support, child custody, housing, and more. If you’re struggling to make these decisions, or if you’re in need of someone to help guide you and your partner through a less stressful, less conflict-fueled separation, then couples mediation may be just what you need. Offering mediation for couples in Hudson, Afton, Stillwater and Woodbury, MN, Lesa Koski is a skilled separation mediator, and she can help you work through the challenges of ending a partnership.
Benefits of Mediation for Couples
If you’ve ever seen a nasty divorce or separation, you can likely imagine the benefits of mediation for couples. With a mediator by your side, you and your partner can reach more peaceful, fair agreements so that you each are left with an equitable distribution of property and, if there are children involved, a parenting agreement that works for you both. Separation mediation is confidential, and it is an efficient means of making a separation as quick and painless as possible for everyone involved – including children. If you’re looking to maintain a good working relationship with your partner, for your own sake or for the sake of your child, separation mediation can help you accomplish this by mitigating any conflict and outlining a plan for a fair separation agreement.
Couples Mediation for Unmarried Parents
When you’re an unmarried parent, a separation can be especially difficult. Even if you can agree on the distribution of property without a problem, very few people are content to give up their rights to rear their children. If you’re in need of help ensuring you have a fair child custody and child support agreement in place, mediation is the key. With an experienced mediator for unmarried parents, you’ll have someone by your side who can tell you what a judge would be likely to decide in a child custody case and help to ensure you create a legally fair custody agreement that will have as little negative impact on your child as possible.
