Minnesota Divorce and Property Division

Minnesota law requires an “equitable division” of assets (and the same applies to debts).  The division is quite often something other than 50:50; there is no requirement that the division be precisely equal.  Many times, the parties agree to divide the assets (including qualified plans) and debts on the balance sheet equally, especially in long-term marriages.  A precise balance sheet is mandatory in all divorce proceeding so that the parties can visually understand the assets and debts; a balance sheet also helps shape the financial settlement.

Divorce and Financial Expertise

When choosing a Divorce lawyer, you should inquire about their expertise and financial acumen, as well as their understanding of advanced financial issues such as present value calculations of property and assets.  In certain Divorce cases, it may be necessary to work with a CPA, an Actuary or Neutral Real Estate Appraiser in order to provide valuations of various assets, such as a 401k, 403b, 457, ESOP, IRA, Brokerage Accounts, Pension, Deferred Comp, Businesses or Real Estate.
