Mediating a Divorce in Minnesota

Once you decide to move forward with a divorce, there are a number of terms that you will probably start to hear about. Some of these topics are relatively self-explanatory, while the meaning of other terms is not so apparent. For this reason, it can be helpful to understand the standard process of a divorce and to learn how this might impact your life. To start, when you initiate a divorce, there are two different routes that you can go through in order for the divorce to be finalized. The two options for settling a divorce are to engage in mediation or to go through the court system. 

If you and your spouse are both somewhat in agreement about the divorce and are on friendly terms, it might be in your favor to discuss the possibility of going through mediation instead of taking your divorce in front of a judge. Mediation means that you and your spouse will meet with a neutral third-party who has special mediating training. The purpose of the mediation is to talk about and resolve issues that pertain to the divorce. Common issues that must be outlined before a divorce is final often include:

A few of the benefits of opting for a mediation versus a divorce trial are:

  • It’s typically much faster to go through mediation than to wait for a judge to determine the divorce settlement. When you are dependent on a judge to rule on the terms of your divorce, it can take months, depending on what other cases are listed in front of yours.
  • With a mediator, you and your spouse can outline the terms of your divorce down to the last detail.  This means that you can have more certainty of the outcome when you work with your spouse to outline the terms of your divorce versus letting a judge decide. 
  • Most of the time, mediation is less expensive to go through a mediator to agree on the terms of your divorce than it is to go through the court system.
