When can a child-custody case be initiated in Minnesota?

Using early neutral evaluation to resolve divorce legal issues


Early neutral evaluation is an alternative dispute resolution process followed in Minnesota that is used to resolve divorce legal issues. This is a high-quality, confidential, prompt, affordable and voluntary process that is focused on reaching a satisfactory settlement for the parties. Unmarried parents, parents who are filing for divorce or custody and parents who already have a custody decree, but now have a dispute, can participate in this process.

Child custody laws in Minnesota undergo changes


There may be a need to make changes in some of the child custody laws, and the state of Minnesota has witnessed some of these changes for those who are finalizing their divorce. The law now states that the factors for determining child custody should be redefined while granting joint custody of the child. The law will no longer make a presumption for or against joint custody, except in cases involving domestic violence or abuse.
