The Terms of Divorce

A considerable portion of family law matters focuses on the terms of divorce – either during the divorce process or in relation to post-divorce modifications – including:

Each of these can play a primary role in how you and your children’s lives proceed post-divorce, which makes obtaining necessary legal guidance critical. Your parental and financial rights hinge on these divorce terms, and a dedicated family law lawyer has the experience and legal insight to help protect them throughout the divorce process – and beyond. 

Complicating Factors

Every divorce is uniquely challenging, but several factors that can make your divorce that much more so include:

  • High assets
  • Complicated assets overall, including intermingled marital and separate assets
  • Business ownership
  • Child custody arrangements that become contentious

The more complicated your divorce, the more important it is to have professional legal counsel on your side from the outset. 


When parents are not married at the time of a child’s birth in Minnesota, the child’s father must be established, and this is called paternity. This can be accomplished when both parents agree to acknowledge the father’s paternity, when the court requires testing, or when the mother or presumed father requests the court to order testing. Paternity is generally considered to benefit everyone involved in all the following ways:

  • The child has the opportunity to build close, abiding relationships with both parents. 
  • The mother has the opportunity to share challenging parental responsibilities and may be entitled to child support (depending upon how child custody plays out).
  • The father has the opportunity to bond with his child and solidify this aspect of his legacy.
  • The child becomes the legal heir of the father, which means that he or she can inherit from his or her father in accordance with the law. 
  • The mother gains access to important healthcare and genetic information regarding the child’s medical history.
  • The child stands to benefit from the father’s employment-based health insurance, retirement accounts, veteran benefits, and more. 

The establishment of paternity is an important pillar of family law.
