Understanding The Specific Laws In Our State
Every state has a unique set of laws, and Minnesota is no different. For example, when it comes to dividing property in your divorce, Minnesota follows guidelines for equitable distribution. If you and your spouse cannot agree to terms of the distribution of your property, a family court judge will decide what is fair for you. The division of property isn’t always a 50-50 split.
If you have children, our state requires both parents to provide support for their children after separation or divorce. The court has strict guidelines for calculating child support based on both parents’ income and the time spent with the child. Some exceptions may apply.
To best address the unique circumstances of your situation, I will analyze your case and help you determine the next steps. My knowledge ranges from the initial filing for divorce to amending custody agreements and all the nuances in between. We may be able to create valid divorce and parenting time agreements through negotiation, but this is not always possible. Sometimes, the most efficient method to safeguard your rights and the best interests of your children is through litigation in court. I will be at your side every step of the way. My top priority is doing what is best for my clients.
