The courts are not like other places you may go. When you file a divorce case in a Minnesota family court, you become subject to the jurisdiction of that court and the authority it is granted by the state Constitution. And while Minnesota family court is empowered to dissolve your marriage, it must follow the rules set up by the legislature and the state Supreme Court.
After a divorce, there are many challenges and changes you and your children must contend with, from dealing with handoffs during the school year and the coordination of medical appointments and your children's after-school activities. One of the most jarring is likely to be your first holiday season as a divorced family.
