White Bear Lake Divorce Lawyer

White Bear Lake Divorce Lawyer

Divorce is a legal process that is often daunting, but it’s also a legal process that can help you secure terms that support a positive post-divorce experience. The terms of your divorce will instruct both your finances and the time you spend with your children, which means it’s imperative that you remain focused and fight for your rights. If you’re facing a divorce, you need an experienced White Bear Lake divorce lawyer on your side. 

Your Divorce Terms

While every divorce involves unique circumstances, the terms that must be reached fall into the same distinct categories, including:

  • Child Custody Arrangements – If you and your divorcing spouse share children, your child custody arrangements are paramount. Further, if you and your soon-to-be-ex can agree on child custody arrangements, you can go ahead and devise individualized arrangements that work for you and your children. If the court is required to intervene, however, it will determine both your legal and physical custody arrangements. Legal custody refers to making important decisions on behalf of your children, and it can be either sole or joint. Physical custody refers to whom your children live with, and it is also divided into sole and joint custody. Sole physical custody means that the children live with one parent the majority of the time and have a visitation schedule with the other parent (this visitation schedule can range from very little time to a good deal of time). Joint physical custody means that your children will go back and forth between both of you equally (or nearly equally).
  • Child Support – Because both parents are required to financially support their children until they reach adulthood, one parent generally pays child support to the other. Even when both parents share custody equally, one may be obligated to pay child support – to help ensure that any post-divorce financial differentials are fairly addressed.
  • Division of Marital Property – Upon divorce, the property that you and your spouse acquired together during the course of your marriage (Your marital property) will be divided in a manner that is deemed equitable (or fair, given the situation) by the court. Determining what is marital property and how it should be divided can become very contentious very quickly, and having an experienced divorce lawyer on your side is always in your best interest.
  • Spousal Maintenance – Spousal maintenance (often called alimony) refers to payments made by the spouse who has the financial means to do so to the spouse who has a demonstrated financial need. Spousal maintenance is based on a wide range of variables that include the length of the marriage, each spouse’s contribution, and much more.
