THE STATE OF MINNESOTA TO THE ABOVE-NAMED RESPONDENT:

YOU ARE HEREBY SUMMONED and required to serve upon the attorney for Petitioner, Timothy J. Helgesen, Legal Aid Service of NE MN, 424 West Superior Street, Suite 302, Duluth, MN 55802, an Answer to the Petition herewith served upon you within thirty (30) days after service, exclusive of the date of such service, if you wish to contest this Dissolution of Marriage proceeding. If you fail to do so, judgment by default will be taken against you for the relief demanded in said Petition.

NOTICE OF TEMPORARY RESTRAINING AND ALTERNATIVE DISPUTE RESOLUTION PROVISIONS: Under Minnesota law, service of this summons makes the following requirements apply to both parties to this action, unless they are modified by the court or the proceeding is dismissed:

ADVERTISEMENT

(1) Neither party may dispose of any assets except (i) for the necessities of life or for the necessary generation of income or preservation of assets, (ii) by an agreement in writing, or (iii) for retaining counsel to carry on or to contest this proceeding;

(2) Neither party may harass the other party; and

(3) All currently available insurance coverage must be maintained and continued without change in coverage or beneficiary designation.

If you violate any of these provisions, you will be subject to sanctions by the court.

(4) Parties to a marriage dissolution proceeding are encouraged to attempt alternative dispute resolution pursuant to Minnesota law. Alternative dispute resolution includes mediation, arbitration, and other processes as set forth in the district court rules. You may contact the court administrator about resources in your area. If you cannot pay for mediation or alternative dispute resolution, in some counties, assistance may be available to you through a nonprofit provider or a court program. If you are a victim of domestic abuse or threats of abuse as defined in Minn. Stat. Chapter 518B, you are not required to try mediation and you will not be penalized by the court in later proceedings.

In some Districts, parenting education may be required in all custody or parenting proceedings. You may contact the District Court Administrator for additional information regarding this requirement and the availability of parent education programs.
