We all know the statistics. Nearly 50% of marriages in our country end in divorce. And the divorce rate is even higher if it is a second or a third marriage. Despite the statistics, we all enter into our marriage with the best of intentions and hope and trust in our ability to beat the odds. However, as life marches on, things get complicated and change, you may find yourself facing an unexpected separation or divorce. If you live in the Coon Rapids, Anoka, Blaine, Ham Lake, Andover, Spring Lake Park, Champlin, MN area, you have many options when it comes to settling your divorce. The two most common mechanisms for settling a divorce are divorce mediation and proceeding through the traditional court system. No matter which route you choose, the team at Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn can help.
