Alternative Dispute Resolution

In Minnesota, alternative dispute resolution relates to processes that litigants may participate in as an alternative to a trial. Whether mediation, arbitration, early neutral evaluation or moderated settlement conferences, the vast majority of divorce and family law matters are resolved outside the courtroom.

Despite your best efforts, you and your partner have decided that divorce is the best option. However, you also intend to remain on good terms as you move on with your lives. Alternative dispute resolution may provide the framework you need to resolve potentially contentious issues without destroying your working relationship.
