Divorce Mediation & Parenting Disputes in Minnesota
If you disagree with your spouse or your co-parent about something important, I can help you have the kind of conversation that’s most likely to get you to a better place. In this conversation:
- I’ll support you in doing whatever it takes to feel like you’re making good decisions.
- I’ll help you communicate to the other party what’s most important to you.
- And I’ll help you understand where the other party is coming from.
Most often, this conversation leads to a full agreement, as well as the comfort of being fully at peace with the other person.
I don’t participate in any of the more coercive approaches that are now popular with judges and divorce lawyers. These include Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE), Parenting Time Expediting (PTE), Parenting Consulting (PC), and Custody Evaluations. All of these approaches take your power away and place it in the hands of someone you don’t know. These processes encourage you to continue fighting with the other party, because you can’t help but feel the need to persuade the ENE, PTE, PC or Evaluator that the other party is wrong. These processes make it much more likely that you’ll remain in conflict for a long time.
"I am so glad that we went to you rather than fighting it out with lawyers. From the minute I walked into your office, it felt really comfortable. I am still very good friends with his mom and dad; they come to stay at my house for a week a couple times a year. My son has seen his friends in divorce situations; he has told me many times thank you for having a peaceful divorce."- Linda Liddle
