St. Paul Divorce And Child Custody Lawyer

Protecting the Best Interest of the Child For Nearly a Quarter Century

Family law matters are some of the most emotionally challenging issues that many people deal with in their lifetime. Decisions about child custody, parenting time and other issues that are addressed in this area can be exhausting and nerve-wracking.

At the law office of Janet L. Goehle, Attorney at Law, in St. Paul, Minnesota, I understand the emotional nature of family legal matters and the importance of trust in the attorney-client
relationship. My firm helps people navigate through the legal process and find the best possible outcome to difficult situations.

In more than 23 years of practicing as a St. Paul divorce and child custody attorney, I have handled thousands of cases, but I steer clear of formulaic approaches because I believe they produce less satisfying solutions. My commitment to communication and personal attention is reflected in the time I spend listening to clients and ensuring that I have a firm idea of their objectives before creating a legal strategy.

I am an Early Neutral Evaluator (ENE) in Washington County, Ramsey County and Anoka County. In that role, I serve as a neutral third party who helps couples reach agreement on child custody and other matters through alternative dispute resolution (ADR).

We work with clients on the full spectrum of family law issues, including:

I Am a Minneapolis Family Law Attorney Who Helps Couples Keep Control of the Key Decisions Made in Divorce

I emphasize conflict resolution early in the divorce process and advocate firmly on behalf of my clients, but I do not enter into divorce proceedings with the notion that one side or the other is destined to "win."

My focus begins and ends with any children who are involved; I am always working to resolve issues in a manner that is in the best interest of your children.

By finding common objectives between you and your spouse, whether children are involved or not, I help you keep more control over the decisions that will shape your post-divorce life, rather than forfeit those decisions to a family court judge.
