St. Louis Park Family Law Attorneys

St. Louis Park Family Law Attorneys

Family law is an especially important branch of the law because it addresses concerns that affect your family. If you’re facing such a concern, it’s a serious matter that requires serious legal attention. And when children are involved, things are that much more intense. If you have a family law issue, reach out to an experienced St. Louis Park family law attorney today. 

Family Law

Family law addresses a wide range of important matters, including all of the following:

  • Issues related to marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships
  • Issues related to annulment or divorce 
  • Domestic violence
  • Legitimacy
  • Adoption and surrogacy

Family law cases are obviously among the most emotional and personal civil cases.

Divorce Concerns

Family law often focuses on issues that relate to divorce, which are generally divided into the following important categories:

  • The Division of Marital Property – Generally, the property that you and your spouse accumulated as a married couple represents marital property that you’ll divide fairly – given the circumstances – upon divorce. The division of marital assets can be one of the most complicated and contentious components of divorce.  
  • Child Custody Arrangements – if your divorce involves children, your child custody arrangements are obviously your first concern. The State of Minnesota finds that children’s best interests are served when they are able to continue forging strong relationships with both parents post-divorce. Even if one of you, in other words, has sole custody, the other parent will very likely have a visitation schedule.
  • Child Support – Both children’s parents are naturally expected to contribute to the ongoing financial support of their shared children. Child support is based on state calculation guidelines that are designed to help balance each parent’s financial contributions (in relation to their ability to pay). 
  • Alimony – Alimony is also known as spousal maintenance, and it refers to monthly payments paid by an ex to his or her former spouse that are intended to help offset the recipient’s financial hardship (relative to the payor’s financial situation). Alimony is determined on a case-by-case basis, and when warranted, it is usually ordered by the court.

If you and your divorcing spouse – with the aid of your respective family law attorneys – can come to mutually acceptable terms for each of these categories (that apply), you’ll be able to move forward with a divorce settlement that the court is very likely to sign off on. Even if you and your soon-to-be-ex are very far apart on the major issues, there are also alternative dispute resolution (ADR) channels, such as mediation, that can help you find your way toward compromise. Ultimately, the vast majority of cases do settle out of court.
