A More Amicable and Cost-Effective Path To Divorce

If you are getting divorced, there’s a much better way to proceed than fighting over everything. You can use mediation or other alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques to find a much more amicable and cost-effective path toward your new family structure.

I’m Mike Black, a veteran mediator who has helped hundreds of people end their marriages with dignity, using ADR procedures. The divorce process in Minnesota now allows divorcing couples to use mediation, arbitration and other ADR procedures to resolve issues efficiently, affordably and in a manner that best suits each family’s specific needs. As a former family law attorney, I’ve personally seen how transformative this way of proceeding can be. I’ve helped hundreds of people use ADR to resolve issues effectively, in ways that minimize conflict and expense while promoting health for the future.
