In the state of Minnesota, a divorce is considered contested even if all but one issue is agreed upon. Divorce by nature is filled with differences, difficulties and at times animosity, so it is easy to see how, by this standard, many divorces end up being considered contested.

In fact, Lisa Kallemeyn has devoted her entire practice to issues of family law in order to help families get through these tough times and come through stronger and ready to heal.
A divorce can begin contested and then issues can get resolved before it is settled, or it can begin uncontested and then as the legal process moves forward an issue can come up that can simply not be agreed upon. If a divorce is contested it is always wise to seek the help of a family law attorney for advice, guidance and support. Lisa Kallemeyn is a family lawyer that understands a complicated divorce and can make sure that your wishes and perspective is put in front of the court in a clear, concise and persuasive manner to give you the best possible chance for the outcome you are looking for.
Contested divorce cases usually arise over one of the following four important issues:
● Division of property included assets, debts and other financial issues
● Child custody arrangements (when applicable)
● Parenting time
● Spousal support and/or child support negotiations
Even if the divorcing couple can agree about how to resolve three of the four of these issues, if there is disagreement about one of these issues, the divorce is still considered contested by the courts.
