Divorce is often defined by conflict – intense conflict that can feel impossible to resolve. You and your ex may have decided to divorce because of conflict in your marriage related to parenting your children, finances, trust issues, substance abuse, or simply not agreeing on your future. While the reasons for your divorce are rooted in this intense conflict, this does not mean that the divorce process has to be. Lesa Koski offers professional mediation services in St. Paul, MN, offering couples an alternative to the traditional litigation process, which can increase the existing conflict. Mediation can reduce the overall conflict between you and your divorcing spouse, allowing you to move forward with your life in a more positive and productive way.
Settle your Divorce with Less Conflict
The mediation process encourages open and honest discussion about the issues that must be resolved during divorce:
1. The creation of a custody agreement or parenting plan that outlines how your children will spend their time with you and your ex.
2. An agreement about how your property, assets and debts will be divided between you and your ex.
3. A determination of whether child support or spousal support is necessary.
As you mediator, Lesa Koski will not make these decisions for you. Her role is to instead help you open a dialogue that allows you and your ex to come to resolution without more conflict. In mediation sessions (which can be virtual while social distancing remains important), you will identify goals and priorities for your own divorce, understanding that you and your ex actually know best how to resolve the unique issues you face. Rather than leaving these major life decisions in the hands of a judge, you will engage in discussions that are based on compromise. This process can promote healing and a more positive relationship between parties after the divorce is final. After, if you share children, this collaborative spirit will be critically important for future co-parenting.
