Collaborative Approach to Divorce
Ideally, the best divorce agreements are written cooperatively, especially when children are involved. The best interest of the children should always come first.
We strive to resolve the issues outside the courtroom to avoid the high costs and the emotionally draining aspects of litigation. We encourage resolution of divorce proceedings through negotiation with the other party or through alternative dispute techniques such as arbitration and mediation.
In certain situations these approaches are unsuccessful and litigation is in your best interest. We advocate on your behalf effectively and aggressively.
The fear of the unknown may cause a great amount of stress. We take the time to understand your situation, explain the process and possible outcomes to you and listen to and address all your concerns.
Together, we will create a strategy to resolve the situation in the most favorable and emotionally positive manner.
Divorces with Children
In Minnesota, custody decisions are driven by the best interest of the child. The court will consider factors like the child’s relationship with his or her parents, mental and physical health of the parties involved, any adjustments to home, school and community and whether any domestic violence has been present. We will explain this process and vigorously represent your best interests.
Decisions regarding custody and visitation go into a document called the Parenting Plan. Both parties can create this plan together and present it to the Court which typically results in the best outcome. If both parties are unable to agree, the judge will decide.
A good plan will address issues that could occur down the road such as expense allotment and major holidays. We will work with you to foresee potential issues and build them into the plan.
Child support is paid from one parent to the other for the child’s daily, medical and educational needs determined by a combination of parental income, parenting time and other expenses. We will help you navigate this issue.
