Minneapolis | Hennepin | High Conflict Divorce

One of the more frequent concerns for people considering a divorce is whether the case will be (or needs to be) contentious and adversarial in nature.  This depends on many things, including the personality of the parties and the attorneys, and whether the parties are open to using methods other than traditional litigation to resolve contested issues in the case.  Some divorce attorneys are “over the top” with regard to their practice style (and personality).  These types are often difficult to work with, as they tend to enjoy constant conflict and are often incapable of participating in Alternative Dispute Resolution process such as ENE, FENE and Mediation.  There is a time to fight in Court, but not every case requires this type of family law advocacy.  An experienced Family Law attorney will properly evaluate the case and make adjustments depending on the needs of the client and the conduct of the opposing attorney (and party).

Some divorce cases are settled and completed in less than 120 days, while some case take much longer, depending on the specific issues and whether the parties are willing to compromise.  Some of the primary areas of dispute in divorce cases include division of assets and debts, spousal maintenance (alimony), child support, child custody, real estate issues, parenting time, retirement account and pension valuation, non-marital claims and business issues related to income and valuation.  Lake Harriet Law Office represents clients in Minneapolis, Edina, Bloomington, Golden Valley, Hopkins, St. Paul, Plymouth, Eden Prairie, Roseville and St. Louis Park.  Please call 612-750-4843 to schedule a consultation with top Twin Cities divorce lawyer Randall A Smith.
