Minneapolis Contested Divorce Lawyer

Divorce And Family Law Services For The Twin Cities Metro Area

Although Minnesota family law judges expect divorcing couples to work out their differences through an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process, sometimes resolving complex issues just isn't possible.

Contested divorce issues typically include:

Litigation is necessary in cases where there is high degree of conflict, when one party is unwilling to share information or actively hides it, or when a settlement cannot be reached through other means. Each party retains an attorney who assists him or her in obtaining a legal judgment, including going to court, if necessary. The litigation attorney's role is to gather information through formal discovery methods if needed. The attorney then prepares the best possible presentation of the client's position. The attorney will work toward a settlement, and if needed, advocate the client's position in court. Since we opened our doors in 1983, our lawyers have been very successful helping clients litigate cases in the court room.
