Involved in a Civil or Family Dispute? You May Be Able to Avoid Court
Taking a case to court is expensive and time-consuming. In Minnesota, the courts approve the use of mediation and arbitration as methods of resolving disputes between two parties, also known as alternative dispute resolution (ADR). Many civil cases filed, including divorces, are settled by ADR before going to court, saving both time and money. Most couples who opt for mediation when going through a divorce report greater agreement and satisfaction than those who don’t. If you and your spouse are at a general consensus about the agreements of your divorce, mediation may be your best option.
Choose a Qualified Attorney for your Mediation
If you choose mediation to work through your issues, it’s important to have a qualified lawyer to serve as a “neutral,” or individual third person, for your case. Third party mediators are subject to a Code of Ethics drafted by the Minnesota courts. These guidelines ensure the qualified neutral will act in the best interest of both parties to work toward a peaceful settlement. Our lawyers have been providing experienced legal counsel to families since 1991, and we look forward to doing the same for you.
