  • Minnesota Court Website : The Minnesota Court System website provides a great deal of information, including forms, information about judges, and how to file certain simple legal forms.
  • Minnesota Case Information (MNCIS):  Want to find out someone’s criminal record (for free)? This is the place.  You can also check on civil and family law cases.
  • MN Child Support Calculator: This is the official state calculator for child support in Minnesota, a fantastic resource.
  • Parents Forever:  Ordered to take the Parenting class? this site tells you exactly what it is.
  • MN Supreme Court Guide on Parenting Time: I’ve no idea why the Minnesota Supreme Court decided to write a 13 page booklet on what they think is best for Minnesota children, but they did and here it is.
  • MN Family Court Rules: Here is the entire set of Minnesota Family Court Rules.
  • OurFamilyWizard.com: a great resource to help minimize future conflict during and after divorce and custody cases involving children.
  • SMRLS (often called Legal Aid) contact them if you are below the poverty line and do not have assets available to help pay for a private divorce lawyer.
  • Kohlmeyer Hagen Law Office – Perhaps the finest law firm that has ever been created (I might be biased).
