Family Law Lawyer in Savage, Minnesota
Because of the many factors involved in divorce, you will have some important things to consider, such as which of you gets the house, especially if you want your children to continue to attend school in Savage. The two of you will also need to establish a parenting-time schedule so you each have time with your children.
The primary goal in any divorce should be for everyone to return to some sense of normal as quickly as possible. To do this, you may need to negotiate with your spouse and his or her lawyer directly, or use one of the alternative dispute resolution programs offered by the Scott County family court system. The court system offers mediation and the early neutral evaluation program, both of which allow you and your spouse to have more control over the final decisions that will affect both of your lives than if your case goes to litigation. Studies have shown that couples who can reach an agreement and settlement in their divorces are happier with the results and may have a healthier co-parenting relationship going forward.
While we encourage the use of ADR, we understand that you and your spouse may not be able to agree on certain things, or possibly on anything. In these situations, we are fully prepared to bring your case before a judge and to fight for what you are entitled to from your divorce.
