Design your Minnesota Divorce


When many people think of divorce, they envision a negative experience that is full of pain, arguing, and difficult court proceedings. What if I told you it doesn't have to be that way? Working with a Minnesota divorce mediator can help turn a difficult time in your life into an opportunity for growth, partnership, and the beginning of a path to design a new life. 

During this week's episode on Doing Divorce Different, I was joined by Kim Best; a nurse turned mediator in Tennessee. We discussed what transformative mediation is, and she gave so many incredible insights that even I hadn’t heard before. 

Mediation is a non-adversarial process where spouses work together with the help of a neutral third party to reach agreements that make the most sense after considering their family circumstances. Divorce is typically a difficult situation where there are heated words said, difficult feelings to navigate, and a whole lot of things to consider, from children to assets and beyond. Mediation can help find opportunities within this challenging time and help create peaceful decisions. 

Some couples come into mediation, and it’s a struggle to get the conversation to a neutral place. If you have children, mediation is a great opportunity to think about what you want for your child and focus on their best interest. It’s incredibly hard to see two parents who choose to hate each other more than they love their children. If you can set aside your differences and keep the value on your children, it will keep the discussion and decisions going in the direction of their best interests.  Please check out my online parenting plan course if you are trying to navigate how to parent through divorce.  


One big benefit of mediation is that you get to choose not only the results you want, but you get to choose who you are during that conflict. It’s easy to get caught up in the feelings but remember you are in charge of your own thoughts and emotions. Choosing how you want to feel on the other side of the divorce and remembering those goals can give you the opportunity to have a voice, heal, be proud of yourself, and design your own life moving forward.
