Minneapolis Family Law Attorneys

Minneapolis Family Law Attorneys

Family law addresses a wide range of family concerns related to divorce, child custody arrangements, child support, visitation schedules, post-divorce modifications, and all other family-related civil law matters. If you have a divorce concern or another type of family law issue, a dedicated Minneapolis family law attorney can help you find a resolution that works for you and your children. 

Your Divorce

Your divorce addresses several important issues that will have a significant impact on you and your children’s futures, including:

These are issues that will reverberate throughout your post-divorce life, and this is why it’s so important to give them the careful consideration they deserve during your divorce process.

Child Custody Modifications

If your divorce has already been finalized, it’s important to recognize that – as your children mature and their needs change – you may need to address modifications to your child custody arrangements and/or to your child support. The courts recognize that the need for such modifications can crop us as couples’ post-divorce lives evolve and are prepared to address these important issues. If the terms of your divorce that relate to your children are no longer serving your children’s best interests, don’t assume that you simply have to live with them – consult with an experienced Minneapolis family law attorney instead. 

Your Divorce’s Financial Terms

Except in extreme situations, the financial terms of your divorce, including the division of marital property and alimony (as applicable), cannot be modified. As you process through your divorce, it’s critical that you carefully attend to these issues to help ensure that your rights are protected and that you obtain financial terms that meet your needs. The basics related to divorce financial terms include:

  • In Minnesota, the division of marital property is predicated on equitable distribution, which means a fair distribution (based on the circumstances involved) rather than necessarily an equal distribution. 
  • Your marital property refers to those assets that you acquired as a married couple over the course of your marriage. 
  • Any separate property that either of you brought into your marriage and kept separate generally remains separate property.
  • Alimony is not a given, but when appropriate – when one spouse has the financial need, and the other had the financial means to offset that need – the court will address the issue, taking the specific circumstances involved into careful consideration. Such circumstances include the length of your marriage, each spouse’s level of education and employability, each spouse’s general health, any special circumstances that apply, and much more.
