Family law includes all issues related to a divorce including child custody, the development of parenting plans, child support, division of property (assets and debts) and even other less traditional issues like the rights of grandparents after a marriage has ended and the rights of step-parents in adoption matters. Because of the comprehensive nature of family law, a family law attorney must be highly skilled and experienced in order to be able to represent the wide range of needs in this diverse area. Lisa Kallemeyn, of Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn, is a family law attorney who has focused her entire practice on helping those in the Anoka County, Minnesota area navigate divorce and other related issues. She also specializes in family law mediation, which gives participants a forum to discuss and settle issues in a safe environment.
Family Mediation Process
If you find yourself in a situation where you and your family might benefit from family mediation, you can trust Lisa Kallemeyn for help and support. As a mediator, Lisa will not make the decisions but will help facilitate a productive and positive discussion in an environment that encourages collaborative thinking and compromise. As a mediator, Lisa will remain neutral but will facilitate the exchange of information between parties and encourage a discussion that focuses on the priorities set ahead of time.
Family mediation offers an alternative to proceeding through the court system, which generally only increases the adversarial nature of the process. Mediation can lay the groundwork for a more collaborative relationship moving forward, as most all issues of family law are long term, rather than short term. Mediation is confidential, flexible and can be significantly faster and less expensive than a lengthy court battle. Lisa Kallemeyn can meet with you to answer other questions you have about the mediation process so that you have all of the information you need to decide whether mediation will work for you.
