Divorce causes emotional, physical and financial stress and is upsetting to everyone involved. When you come in, our first job is to listen. We want to learn what happened, what your current situation is and what your goals are for your future and your children’s future. Our next job is to advise. We will give you an honest assessment of your situation and the information you need to make decisions going forward. We will fight for what you are entitled to from your marriage, but we will help you set realistic expectations.
Dakota County Divorce Law Firm
Divorce and other family law issues can become contentious very easily. We work with you to figure out what you need and what is reasonable as opposed to fighting tooth and nail for every little thing. We will tell you if something you think is important isn’t worth fighting for. Sometimes, that means telling you things you may not want to hear. We maintain this policy of honesty because we are looking out for your best interests. Our goal is to get you through the process as quickly and efficiently as possible, without it costing you a fortune.
We understand that there will be conflicts between you and your spouse or former spouse during this time. We use alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, such as mediation and the early neutral evaluation program (ENE), to help the two of you work through as much as possible so you maintain control over the outcome of your case. If you end up in litigation, the final decisions will be made by a judge, who has no knowledge of you, your family dynamics or your potential future.
We know how much your family and your future mean to you. We will do everything in our power to help you preserve as much of that as possible.
