When seeking out a Minnesota Family Law Attorney it is important to know that the state of Minnesota has a ‘No Fault’ view on divorce. Regardless of vows broken, it is not a crime tho it may hurt. That being said, there may be little to a massive amount of emotions tied to this life changing process and when children are involved the most important aspects of your life come into perspective. There are many paths when it comes to divorce/legal separation but ultimately it comes down to the two individuals and if one or both are interested in the collaborative or contested family law process.

The courts will then come to a decision.
