In Minnesota, more than 50% of all married couples will be divorced at some point. The Divorce and Family Law process can be complicated, and requires experienced legal representation in order to provide the best opportunity for a proper and equitable resolution of the contested issues. Financial issues are frequently the most difficult issues to resolve, and often require the assistance of financial neutrals such as a CPA, Actuary, Financial Planner or Real Estate appraiser.
Some of the most common areas of disagreement during Divorce include Child Custody, Parenting Time, Property Division and Spousal Maintenance.
Zealous, professional legal representation is often required in Divorce cases. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes such as Early Neutral Evaluation and Mediation can also be effective tools in resolving contested issues.
In some cases (approximately 5% of all Family Law cases in Minnesota) the parties resolve their contested issues and disputes at a Trial, where the outcome is never predictable, and the result is sometimes Appealed to the Minnesota Court Of Appeals, located in St. Paul.
Your Divorce will be handled with assertiveness, precision and attention to detail from the inception of the case to the conclusion of the case.
