In the state of Minnesota, you and your spouse have the same rights when it comes to getting divorce. Minnesota is a “no-fault” divorce state, so the reason behind a divorce is not taken into consideration by the court. In fact, the court actually requires that every couple attempt an alternative dispute resolution process before proceeding through the court system. So, if you have made the decision to pursue divorce, one of the very first steps you can take is to consider hiring a mediation firm to help with the process. Divorce is much less expensive, takes less time and is less stressful than a court battle. In addition, the courts cannot manage the volume of divorces, so their recommendation is one that is actually much better for you and your family.
