Child custody issues are often the most difficult, painful and contentious part of a divorce settlement. After living for a long period of time as a family unit prior to divorce, it is almost unimaginable to think about how you will go from seeing your child each day to splitting custody with your divorcing spouse. Determining child custody is an extremely emotional process that can be settled in one of two primary ways – through the court system or through divorce mediation. Both offer a viable path forward for a couple navigating divorce. Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn of Coon Rapids, MN can help you determine the path forward that will best meet your needs and your budget so that you can begin moving forward and begin a new phase of your life.
