Whether you’re facing a divorce, need a post-divorce modification, or have other divorce concerns, an experienced Ramsey County family law attorney can help. Divorce issues are complicated, and the resulting consequences are likely to significantly affect you and your children’s future. Because your divorce concerns are far too important to leave to chance, working closely with a knowledgeable family law attorney is in your best interest. 

Your Divorce Terms

Your divorce will not follow exactly the same path that anyone else’s divorce follows, but the basic components of every divorce remain the same, including:

  • Child Custody Arrangements – In divorces involving shared children, child custody arrangements are naturally paramount. Many parents come up with creative schedules that address their own family’s unique needs, but generally, one parent becomes the primary custodial parent (with whom the children live the majority of the time) upon divorce, and the other parent is awarded a visitation schedule with the children. Unless there are serious mitigating circumstances, both parents typically share legal custody, which means they both retain the parental rights and responsibilities of making important decisions on behalf of their children.
  • Division of Marital Property – Minnesota, like most other states, divides marital property according to equitable distribution, which means your marital property will be divided in a manner deemed fair given the circumstances involved (instead of being divided directly down the middle). Your marital property refers to those assets you acquired together as a married couple – regardless of who made the purchase or whose name is on the title. Exceptions are gifts and inheritances that are specifically addressed to only one of you, which remain the addressee’s separate property.
  • Child SupportChild support is a financial tool for ensuring that both parents uphold their financial responsibility to their children. Because the primary custodial parent is generally deemed to already be fulfilling this obligation, the parent with the visitation schedule usually pays child support, which is based on state calculation-guidelines, to that parent. 
  • Alimony – What most people think of as alimony is officially called spousal support, and it represents a financial tool to help offset a financial discrepancy between one spouse who lacks the financial means to support himself or herself and the other spouse who has the financial means to rectify the discrepancy. Alimony is, by no means, a certainty, but it is implemented when warranted by the specific circumstances at hand. Factors such as the length of the marriage, each spouse’s level of education and current employability, and any extenuating circumstances can all play important roles in this determination.
