Guiding Clients to Favorable Divorce Outcomes in Minneapolis

Even if you want a divorce, the process of separating and ending a marriage can seem overwhelming. You and your spouse likely have intertwined lives, with shared property, financial accounts, and maybe minor children together. In a divorce, you will be required to separate all of these aspects of your life and determine your circumstances moving forward. 

Divorce can be emotionally difficult, and the last thing you need is to try to navigate the legal process and risk making errors that go against your best interests. It is important to have the help and representation of a skilled Minneapolis divorce attorney who will guide you through your divorce case, advise you of your options, and stand up for your rights at every turn. Contact our legal team at Atticus Family Law for more information.

Basic Divorce Requirements in Minneapolis

Like every state, Minnesota has laws that set out basic requirements for a divorce. The court will only dissolve your marriage if you meet all of these requirements, which include:

  • One spouse living in the state for at least 180 days before the divorce was filed
  • Filing a petition with all the required information and stating the marriage is irretrievably broken
  • Resolving the issues that apply to your marriage

We can help ensure that you meet these requirements so that you can move forward post-divorce as soon as possible. 

Issues to Resolve in Your Divorce

There are several issues that need to be resolved in each divorce case, depending on your circumstances. Some issues might include:

  • The equitable division of all marital property and assets, including real estate, personal property, financial accounts, retirement accounts, and debts
  • Deciding whether one spouse will receive spousal support (also known as alimony) from the other spouse for a period of time
  • Determining whether one parent will pay child support and how much support is necessary
  • How you will share physical and legal custody of your minor children, including a specific schedule and parenting plan

The issues in each divorce case will differ based on whether you have a divorce with children, a high net value divorce, or other complex circumstances. 

No matter what issues are relevant in your case, our attorneys work to help you reach a resolution as efficiently as possible. There are different options for doing so, which include:

  • You and your spouse come into the process with an agreement
  • We negotiate with your spouse’s attorney regarding any disputes
  • You and your spouse participate in mediation
  • We represent you in court if the issues need to be decided by a judge

Each case takes a different path, and we are prepared to stand up for your interests based on the details of your specific situation.
