We have experience delivering quality mediation services for the following matters:
- Divorce: When a couple decides to end their marriage in divorce, our Guides can help them sort through the complicated legal issues, including the division of marital property, spousal support, child custody, and child support.
- Alimony: During a marriage, spouses have a duty to provide each other with financial support. When the couple gets divorced, Minnesota law may impose a similar responsibility on someone if their spouse lacks the financial resources to cover their living expenses per the standard of living they achieved during marriage.
- Child Custody: When the parents of a minor child decide to go their separate ways, they must organize their parental rights and responsibilities for providing physical care and decision-making authority for the child. In mediation, parents must work hard to tackle this issue, possibly developing a parenting plan and schedule.
- Child Support: Each parent has a legal obligation to provide their child with sufficient financial support. Typically, parents fulfill this obligation by providing the child with food, a home, medical care, and education. However, separated parents must decide how to comply with their parental duties while considering their parenting plan.
