Hennepin County Divorce Attorney

No two couples go through the exact same divorce experience, but divorce represents a serious transition for every couple who must endure it. In addition, divorce puts your parental and financial rights on the line, which makes working closely with an experienced Hennepin County divorce attorney in your best interests. 

The Terms of Your Unique Divorce

While your divorce experience will be unique to your family, the terms that you need to address include the same ones that every other divorcing couple faces, which are:

  • The division of marital property
  • Child custody arrangements 
  • Child support
  • Alimony

Dividing Your Marital Property

While you were married, you and your spouse acquired property and other assets, and these are considered marital property. Whose name is on the title or who paid for the asset in question has no bearing on the fact that it is marital in nature (if you acquired it while married). Upon divorce, all such assets need to be divided between you in a manner that is determined to be fair given the unique circumstances of your marriage. This division of marital property tends to be one of the most challenging aspects of divorce. 

Determining Your Child Custody Arrangements

Child custody is another primary divorce concern that has the capacity to become very hotly contested. In Minnesota, child custody arrangements are resolved in terms of both legal custody (parental decision-making authority) and physical custody (your parenting time). 

The kinds of primary parenting decisions addressed by legal custody include:

  • Your children’s schooling
  • Your children’s health and medical concerns
  • Your children’s religious upbringing
  • Your children’s travel and participation in extracurricular activities

Your parenting time schedule determines when your children are with you and when they are with their other parent. The two basic options include one of you becoming the primary custodial parent or both of you dividing your time with the kids more equally. While the court has standard parenting time schedules that it generally employs, you’ll have limitless scheduling options if you are able to resolve the matter between yourselves. 

Child Support

Child support is a state payment system that helps to ensure parents who are no longer together continue to share in the financial support of their children. Generally, the parent who is the higher earner – regardless of how evenly you divide your parenting time – makes the child support payments. 


Alimony is sometimes employed when one divorced spouse is left without the financial ability to support himself or herself and when the other spouse has the ability to help out. Alimony is typically set for a duration that allows the recipient to become more financially independent.
