If you are considering divorce or legal separation, we can help you analyze the situation and provide advice as to how to proceed. We have years of experience and, although every fact situation is unique, it is likely that we have dealt with similar issues in the past.
Legal separation is essentially the same process as a divorce but after you are done you remain legally married. Usually such an action is taken because of religious or personal reasons, or to keep a party on the other party’s insurance. However, since Minnesota is a no fault state, if either party wants a divorce, they will be entitled to it even if the other party started the process as a legal separation.
You can have confidence that we will always act in your interest and will try of resolve your matter with consideration and in a prompt and expeditious manner. How complex and how expensive the divorce process is depends upon the willingness of the parties to settle the principal issues. The more the parties disagree, the more expensive the process can become. I have handled divorces from beginning to end in less than a week. On the other hand, some have taken more than a year and a half with much litigation and expense. We always encourage a client to consider settlement if that can be done and still accomplish the client’s goals.
The issues in marriage dissolution include child custody, parenting time, child support, alimony and asset or property division.
