What Is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation, a part of the overall category of family mediation, is essentially a negotiation in which you and your spouse discuss ending your divorce with a neutral third party.With the mediator’s help, you work through the issues you need to resolve in order to end your marriage as amicably and cost effectively as possible.

How Does The Process Work?

During the process, all the issues that need to be addressed in a final divorce decree will be discussed and agreed upon, such as:
– Real And Personal Property
– Division Of Assets And/or Liabilities
– Tax Considerations
– Spousal Maintenance
– Child Support
– Living Arrangements For The Children
– Parenting Responsibilities
– Plans For Possible Future Changes

What Is A Mediator?

A divorce mediator is a professional who intervenes when couples are in conflict and wish to end their marriage or relationship, and, while remaining neutral, guides the couple to a settlement that is acceptable to all involved.
Mediators do not make decisions, provide therapy, provide legal representation or perform legal services for divorcing people, but do devote their energy to helping participants obtain fair agreements.

How Much Does It Cost In Minnesota?

There are approximately 15,000 divorces in Minnesota a year. The average cost of a divorce ranges from about $11,000 to over $36,000.*
For a mediated divorce, this number varies between mediators and situations. After completing almost 10,000 mediations, we know everything that needs to be done, and have packages that range from $1250 to $4750 that include everything a divorce mediation in Minnesota requires.
