Securing fair terms for you and your children, led by Attorney collaborating with you every step of the way.
This is AFL’s version of the customary Do-It-With-You legal service for family law needs.

It is agonizing to be faced with a family law dispute. The stress & anxiety of disputes with people who are (or used to be) close to you involving the children you love can leave you sleepless, distracted, and hopeless. Agreeing on what’s fair should not be as controversial as is.

Perhaps you need to make changes to your divorce decree or custody order. Or perhaps you need to establish custody rights. Maybe you don’t know — you just know that changes are needed for access to your children, decision-making for them, and/or better responsibilities need to be set.

In Minnesota “Family Law” is a term that includes divorce, the divorce process, divorce with children, high net value divorces, property division, and spousal maintenance. You can see our divorce services on these Reset Divorce, Peace of Mind Divorce, and Solo Divorce pages of the AFL website.

Other family law concerns include establishing & modifying custody, changes to parenting time schedules and conditions, paternity & child support, and 3rd party & grandparent custody. These are those concerns that come after divorce or those legal issues that do not include married parents.

You need a court order to reduce & eliminate the stress, anxiety, and frustration you fear for yourself and for the future of the children you hold dear.

  • How do you get what is what’s best for the children?
  • Will you be able to change the prior divorce decree or custody order?
  • What assurances do you have that a new arrangement will serve your children’s long-term happiness?

The Fair Family Law service uses our compassion for people in your shoes and decades of experience to deliver that court order that will serve your short-term and long-term needs. In negotiating or at an evidentiary hearing, we seek to resolve all issues of legal custody, physical custody, parenting time schedules & conditions, child support, insurance, and taxes, all proposed divorce orders are vetted against our 100+ point checklist for a no-regrets “Once & Done” finality. You and your attorney work together to see through the strategy, filing, and resolutions, be it by negotiation, mediation, or trial.

Collaborate with us to find new confidence in a secure future.
