Family Law Lawyer in Prior Lake, Minnesota
There will be many things for you to consider during your divorce, including how you and your spouse will divide your property. This will include your house, which may affect whether your children can continue to go to school in Prior Lake. Other major considerations will include how much parenting time each of you wants with your children and how much child support will be paid to the person who ends up with the larger share of parenting time.
We know that this is an emotional time for you. However, the easiest, fastest and least expensive way to get through this is to negotiate directly with your spouse and his or her lawyer, or to take advantage of the alternative dispute resolution programs offered by Scott County. These include mediation and early neutral evaluation (ENE). By working through these decisions and coming to an agreement, whereby we can create a settlement for the judgment and decree, you retain control over the outcome of your case and reduce the potential for anger over decisions made by a judge, which will affect the rest of your life. This may also help the two of you co-parent more amicably in the future.
We know that there are situations where you and your spouse simply cannot agree. If this happens, we are prepared to take your case to court and aggressively pursue your interests.
