Family law encompasses a broad range of legal issues, including divorce, child custody, parenting time, child support, spousal maintenance, and step-parent adoption.


A divorce involves dividing your marital assets, marital debts, calculating spousal maintenance, and other financial obligations.  When children are involved, divorce is further complicated by the discussion of custody, parenting time, and child support.  Let us help you navigate through this often complicated process.

Custody, Child Support, and Parenting Time

If you were never married, but have children with a former partner, you may find yourself needing to decide issues of paternity, custody, parenting time, and child support.  If you find yourself unable to address these issues on your own, contact us to discuss how we can help.

Spousal Maintenance

The reality of spousal maintenance in Minnesota is that the law is about as vague as it gets.  Some guidelines for spousal maintenance expectations exist in case law and statutes, but the reality is that a clear calculation does not exist.  Contact us today to help you understand more about how much you might owe, how much you might receive, and for how long.

Other Areas of Family Law

Family law also encompasses issues related to grandparents’ rights, step-parent adoption, and premarital agreements.  We have experience advising clients in all aspects of family law.
