Navigating A Less Complicated DivorceBack in the 1970s and 1980s, popular culture was filled with references about the future conveniences that would be normal parts of life in the 2000s and beyond. We were all but promised flying cars and robot servants. While we may not have as many futuristic conveniences as we were promised, one thing that has evolved significantly is the cultural opinions of divorce and the options for the process. Lesa Koski has been a leader in bringing divorce mediation services to the forefront of Minnesota family law, offering compassionate and competent divorce support services to local couples. Divorce can be handled with less stress and emotional difficulty and Lesa can help with this.

There were no predictions of futuristic divorces back when the ideas of hover cars and robot servants were taking shape, but, fortunately, we have been moving in a direction of making divorce simpler and easier. No changes could make the circumstances that lead to divorce easier—divorces still occur as a result of painful and difficult changes that occur in human relationships, and there is likely no gadget or contraption that can make human relationships less complex.

Divorce Mediation Services

However, when divorce becomes inevitable, there is a convenience that more and more people are taking advantage of. It is known as divorce mediation. Divorce mediation is a process that avoids the complications of the traditional court-based divorce procedures that have become our vision for what divorce looks like. Couples who seek the help of a divorce mediator, such as Lesa Koski, are likely to find themselves working to find common ground, as opposed to increasing the adversarial aspects of their relationship. The mediation process allows the divorcing couple to take some deep breaths, resolve issues that can be resolved, and build on that resolution to end the relationship more amicably.

Reduce Conflict During Divorce Process

The focus on reducing conflict, if not eliminating it, is especially helpful if the couple has children. Resolving even a small number of minor conflicts can lessen the impact of divorce on children by helping the parents see that they can, in fact, still find solutions to their disagreements. Small successes can be built upon, and Lesa Koski is very good at identifying those successes and providing context for the divorcing couple so they can also recognize the resolutions as successes.
