Once a divorce is finalized, both parties enter an entirely new phase of life, with separate homes, a new schedule and a new future. If children are involved, the entire family also has to adjust to shared custody and seeing each other less often. With all of these changes and a new path forward, questions and issues arise that you could not predict in the divorce settlement.

Lesa Koski is an experienced mediator who specializes in post-divorce mediation for couples in the Eastern MN and Western WI area. Lesa strives to earn the trust of both parties in each case so that mediation can be successful.
Solving Issues After A Divorce
Issues that are often resolved in post-divorce mediation sessions often involve changes in circumstances or finances. Some common issues include:
● Issues surrounding a pending move/relocation
● Questions about how tuition, medical expenses or extracurricular activities will be paid for
● Concerns over relationship with a step-parent
● Co-parenting concerns

She will work with you to listen to the other parent, put your children’s needs first and find ways to compromise. She will not choose sides or make decisions, but will help you work through differences of opinion and empower you and your ex-spouse to find solutions so that you can get back to your new life.
Benefits Of Post-Divorce Mediation
