More Than 30 Years Of
Caring Counsel For Families

Compassionate resolution for child custody and other family law concerns

A Focus On Children

Family law issues involving children are often stressful and consequential. Where possible, it is best that children retain a relationship with both parents, and that both parents sign on to a plan they both support. At my law firm, Janet L. Goehle, Attorney at Law, I offer more than 30 years of experience negotiating sustainable agreements for difficult family law conflicts; particularly those involving children. I take a holistic approach to legal representation. I aim to reduce stress and conflict by proactively dealing with the emotions that can cause flare-ups and stalemates between spouses or unmarried parents.

Seeking Agreement
Before Argument

A combative, winner-take-all approach to family law concerns can backfire, damaging relationships and draining finances. That is why my practice prioritizes collaborative resolutions where possible. As a qualified neutral under Rule 114 of the Minnesota General Rules of Practice, I serve as a third party in my role as mediator or in my role as an early neutral evaluator (ENE), facilitating agreements between divorcing or never-married couples. I also serve as a parenting time expeditor (PTE) and a parenting consultant (PC) to help create sustainable plans that best serve the children and encourage cooperation between parents. I recognize, however, that in some cases, negotiation is not possible. In those cases, I am fully capable of protecting your rights in family court regarding custody, parenting time, support, property division and other matters.
