Divorce is a difficult transition for most people and families. At Fiddler Osband, we listen, advise, and advocate to help you navigate this transition in a way that supports your goals.
There is no one size fits all approach to a divorce—every family and every situation is different. In Minnesota, there are many ways to initiate the divorce process. It may be an early mediation, serving a Petition without filing in court, or serving and filing in court. We work with you to strategically determine the best course of action for your unique case. If your partner has already started the process, don’t worry! In Minnesota, it typically does not matter who initiates the divorce.
We believe that you know your family best and we will partner with you in reaching a fair and equitable settlement while focusing on what is most important to you—whether that is your children, your home, or simply your independence. We offer legal services in traditional, cooperative, and collaborative divorce processes.
While we support settlement options as first steps, we are also fierce advocates for our clients. Rachel Osband and Delmar Flynn have extensive litigation and trial experience. They represent clients at pretrials and trials when that is the necessary outcome in a matter.
It is important to remember that your divorce is not your sister’s divorce, or your best friend’s divorce, so while your friends and family are great sources of support, they may not be the best source of counsel as to the realities and potential successful outcomes for your family. Let your friends be your friends and let us provide you with rational, steady legal counsel as you navigate the emotional waters of your divorce.
