The Client-Centered Divorce Representation You Need

Just as every person is unique, every marriage is different. As a result, the ending of a marriage is different for each couple and each person involved – husband, wife and kids.

It is important that you fully understand your unique situation and your rights.

Issues That Arise In Divorce

As you move through the divorce process, there will be many issues that arise requiring a decision. Some situations that may surface include:

Property division: Spouses often argue over how property and assets are divided in divorce. In Minnesota, the law of equitable distribution guides the division of marital property. This means that assets and property are divided fairly and equitably, but not necessarily in an exact 50-50 split.

Spousal support: Sometimes referred to as alimony, spousal support is money that is paid by one spouse to the other during and after a divorce. Many factors are taken into consideration when making a decision, including the ages of the parties and the length of the marriage.

Matters involving children: While it is best to work together and keep the best interests of the children in mind at all times during a divorce, this cannot happen in all cases. Parties often argue over what their custody arrangement may be, who will have the children more often and how much child support they will be expected to pay or will receive.
