Frequently Asked MN Family Law Questions

Q: What is Mediation?

A: Mediation is a forum in which a neutral third party facilitates communication between parties to promote settlement. A mediator does not make decisions in your case.
Mediation is commonly used to negotiate settlements in Minnesota family law cases and can take place with or without the parties’ respective attorneys present.
Mediation does have a high success rate. However, not all mediation sessions are successful and it is not appropriate for everyone. Choosing an appropriate mediator for your case will increase your chances that mediation will be successful.
Therefore, it is important to consult with an experienced family law attorney to assist you in choosing the appropriate mediator.
