Early Case Management/
Early Neutral Evaluation

Early Case Management (ECM) is the early involvement of a judicial officer with the purpose of aiding in the case’s earlier resolution.  Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) is a confidential, voluntary, evaluative process designed to facilitate prompt dispute resolution in custody, parenting time (visitation), and financial matters.

How does Early Case Management (ECM) Work?The fair and efficient administration of justice requires that all cases in family court receive timely attention. This requires the judicial system to handle cases expeditiously and with consistency, fairness and sound decisions.
  • Early Case Management (ECM): The court manages the process and disposition of the cases before it. The ECM approach uses aggressive case management timing by establishing judicial intervention on cases within three to four weeks of filing.
  • Initial Case Management Conference (ICMC): The initial meeting with the judicial officer is called an Initial Case Management Conference (ICMC). The judicial officer's involvement soon after the filing encourages the parties and their attorneys (if represented) to focus on resolving and narrowing the contested issues that are barriers to settlement.
  • Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE):  ENE is a confidential, voluntary, evaluative process designed to facilitate prompt dispute resolution in custody, parenting time (visitation), and financial matters. The program offers the evaluative impressions of experienced professionals to parties engaged in custody, parenting time, and financial disputes. Feedback is provided to parties and their attorneys based on case presentations and a limited amount of information gathering. The ENE process is typically completed within one month. A party may choose to end the ENE session at any time.
Following are links to Judicial Council Policies regarding ECM and ENE:

What is Early Case Management (ECM)?

The early involvement of a judicial officer in a case to help narrow the issues, to offer alternatives to the litigants, and to control and track a case with the purpose of aiding in the case’s earlier resolution.

What is an Initial Case Management Conference (ICMC)?

The intervention of the judicial officer early in the process is a key component to engaging the parties in communication that will help them reach a resolution.  The purpose of the ICMC is to:

  • Establish the Court's control of the progress of the case;
  • Provide early intervention by the Court;
  • Offer Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes;
  • Establish discovery limitations and deadlines;
  • Discuss settlement progress and opportunities for settlement; and,
  • Assign a date for the future conferences, if needed.

Within 30 days of initial filing the court schedules the parties for what is called an Initial Case Management Conference (ICMC). Parties will be sent a ICMC Data Sheet. This form needs to be filled out and returned to the court prior to the scheduled date. This hearing is mandatory. If you are represented by an attorney, your attorney needs to be present. At the ICMC, all involved parties will meet with the judicial officer. Here, the judicial officer will talk with you about what the issues and concerns impeding or stopping you from coming to an agreement. The judicial officer will discuss with you your various options which will allow your case to continue through the court process with little or no delay.

For more information to help you prepare for your ICMC, watch the video on the Resources Tab on this page.

What is Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE)?
Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) strives to move families through court efficiently and inexpensively by working with them early on to  reach agreements that will foster the best interests of their families. ENE helps parties focus on the critical issues they face in a confidential, non-confrontational, and settlement-oriented alternative dispute resolution program.

In ENE, parties and their attorneys attend an ENE session with experienced evaluator(s). Each side presents its view. The evaluator(s) discuss the case alone and then share their perspective on the merits of each position. Evaluator(s) identify the key issues and predict how the case is most likely to conclude. The parties are always able to confer with their attorneys and discuss settlement. Sometimes additional meetings are scheduled.

Issues related to custody or parenting time take part in Social ENE (SENE).  In those cases a two person male/female team of evaluators will work on the case. If the issues relate to financial issues, then a Financial ENE (FENE) with a single evaluator, is used. In either type of ENE, evaluators are highly experienced professionals who have also been formally trained to help resolve cases in the ENE program.
 
Over half of the cases settle during the first session and over three-fourths reach at least some agreement. Absent full resolution, the team advises the assigned judge about areas of agreement, additional needed services and how to focus future assistance on the most relevant issues.
 
The parties pay for the costs of ENE according to a financial or social Sliding Fee Schedule. Most who participate in ENE will save a considerable amount of time and money versus contentious litigation in a traditional court setting. ENE is, on average, fully concluded within 90 days. A full determination in a traditional court setting can easily take more than a full year's time.
 

Are there any reports regarding the use of ENE?

In 2007, the State Justice Institute (SJI) awarded the Minnesota Judicial Branch a State Court grant to help implement the Third/Fifth Judicial Districts' Early Case Management/Early Neutral Evaluation (ECM/ENE) pilot project, and support expansion of ECM/ENE. Click here to view the SJI Final Report. The report appendices are available upon request.
 

Has ECM or ENE been recognized for its innovative approach to resolving cases?

Yes, in 2009, the Harvard Kennedy School Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation named Minnesota's Early Neutral Evaluation initiative in Hennepin County as one of the Top 50 Government Innovations.

When did use of ECM and ENE commence in Minnesota?
An administrative order signed by Chief Justice Kathleen Blatz authorized the establishment of family court early case management pilot projects.
