Skilled Assistance With Alternative Dispute Resolutions

A majority of family law and divorce disputes settle before going to trial. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) options are generally faster and less expensive ways to resolve legal disputes.

Parties to civil lawsuits in Minnesota are required to discuss ADR options with the court. In fact, a court will often order that the parties attempt to resolve their differences using one or more method. An experienced lawyer can guide you through the ADR process.

Helping You Resolve Your Family Law Disputes

At Haugen Law Group, our attorneys have decades of experience and knowledge regarding alternative dispute resolution strategies in family law and divorce situations. This allows us to provide powerful options to clients in Chaska and the surrounding areas of Minnesota.

Our skilled lawyers will help you quickly identify your goals, analyze the opposition's position, reveal all challenges you face and guide you to a solution that is best for your unique circumstances. Your options include:

  • Mediation: Mediation involves the two opposing parties working through disagreements with the help of a licensed mediator. We stand beside our clients in mediation, ensuring that their interests are not overlooked, while encouraging creative agreements to resolve disputes. This process tends to be much less expensive and time-consuming than going to trial.
  • Early neutral evaluations: Another method of resolving family law disputes prior to trial is an early neutral evaluation (ENE). There are two types: social early neutral evaluations and financial early neutral evaluations. The goal of an ENE is to provide the parties involved with information that will better equip them for reaching an early settlement, rather than exhausting resources on litigation. We guide clients through the ENE process and offer early neutral evaluator services.
  • Arbitration: Arbitration is similar to going to trial. However, instead of a judge presiding over the case, an arbitrator who is skilled and knowledgeable in the law will serve as the decision-maker. As in a trial, we advocate for our clients during the arbitration process. While there are many similarities between arbitration and trial, arbitration tends to come with more flexibility.
