Minnesota Legal Aspects of DivorceIf you going through a divorce, you no doubt grasp how difficult and complex it can be to separate your life from that of your ex-spouse. There are many emotional issues to wrestle with and a long list of legal issues as well. Fortunately, if you find strong legal support, you can be guided through this process in a healthy and productive way. The law firm of Kallemeyn & Kallemeyn have more than 20 years of experience handling all types of legal issues surrounding a divorce in Minnesota. Below are some of the most common areas that we can manage:

Division of Assets/Property: Most often the property from a marriage (both assets and debts) are divided equally between the two parties. Property owned prior to the marriage, gifts and property given as part of an inheritance can be more complicated and belong to one party or the other.

Child Custody: In many cases, this is one of the the most difficult aspects of a divorce. Child custody can be settled in the court or via divorce mediation, but either way, having strong legal representation is critical. Developing a custody arrangement and parenting time plan that works puts the children’s needs first and works for both parties is the ultimate goal.

Child/Spousal Support: This is also a frequent point of contention and can take the most back and forth to settle. Basic support, medical support and child care support are three important elements that the court considers when deliberating child support cases and, again, the child’s welfare is the most important factor here. Spousal support is generally sought when one of the parties does not have financial independence and may need time to develop this.

Contested Divorce: A divorce is contested if even one aspect of the divorce is not agreed upon. Attorneys generally are needed to manage these issues and help move the negotiation process forward.

Divorce Mediation: This strategy is being employed more as couples realize that mediation can be less expensive than divorce and give the couple more control over the outcome. Lawyers are often still involved and a mediator, who is impartial, leads the discussion to arrive at a divorce settlement outside of court.
