What Are the Different Types of Divorce in Minnesota?
No matter how many people you know who have been divorced or how many experiences they have shared with you, the one thing you should know is that each divorce is as unique as the two people who are pursuing the process.
Our attorneys provide real-time answers and advice and long-term solutions for each of our clients, including those who are pursuing all types of marital division, including:
Once we understand the type of divorce you and your spouse are pursuing, which is typically dictated by your marital circumstances, we will outline the details that must be negotiated to reach a divorce agreement outside of the courtroom or litigated before a judge when the divorce cannot be finalized without the court’s interference.
What Decisions Will I Have to Make During My Divorce Proceedings?
Whether you have decided to get divorced based on a single event, like infidelity or criminal behavior, or have been considering dissolving your marriage for some time, Minnesota is a no-fault divorce state.
That means all spouses have the right to file for divorce if they believe their marriage is irretrievably broken without having to prove the other spouse did something wrong.
Once the divorce petition is filed, some of the factors you may have to agree on, when applicable to your marriage, may include:
At Heimerl & Lammers, our divorce attorneys pride ourselves in providing timely and skilled advice that will help you make informed decisions about your future, so you can start your new life with confidence.
What Happens If We Cannot Agree on Any of Our Divorce Details?
In Minnesota, you do not need the consent of your spouse to obtain a divorce, but their resistance may make the process more difficult than it needs to be.
Our divorce attorneys can assure you that challenges and confrontations are not uncommon — for many reasons — when we begin sorting through the details of your marriage.
We can help you navigate these difficult decisions by helping you understand the two sides of divorce: the emotional side and the legal side.
For more than 20 years, our divorce attorneys have been helping our clients separate their emotional connections from a legal vantage point, so they know what to expect from each position.
For instance, not all parents believe their spouse should be entitled to joint custody of their children, which may become a contentious part of their divorce. With our help, he or she can realize what the legal implications of that stance are once we enter the courtroom. And whether it is better to decide on a parenting strategy together or have a judge dictate your custody details.
Conversely, we also represent clients who should fight for what is rightfully theirs inside the courtroom and have over two decades of litigation experience to pursue the best outcome for their unique divorce circumstances.
We understand well that every divorce is unique. And we will learn each detail about what is important to you, including your overall expectations, before applying the necessary legal standards to your case, so you can see each side of your divorce clearly and make informed decisions moving forward.
