Your Guides Through The Divorce Process
Filing for divorce is a decision that will impact you and your family for the rest of your lives. If you and your spouse have been thinking about divorce, it is important that you consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options.
If you have been served with divorce papers in Minnesota, you are required to file an answer to your spouse’s petition within 30 days from the date of service. A petition for divorce often involves complex matters such as property division, child custody, child support and spousal support.
Our attorneys at Oney + Kim Family Law, PLLC, will take the time to discuss the process of divorce with you during a free initial consultation and help you decide the type of divorce that is right for your family’s circumstances.
Simplifying Matters With Uncontested Divorce
If you and your spouse agree on all major issues such as property division, spousal support, child support, custody and parenting time, an uncontested dissolution of marriage may be appropriate. This process is the least complicated and most timely and cost-effective way to dissolve a marriage.
Advocating For Clients In Contested Divorce
If you and your spouse do not agree on all major issues and litigation becomes necessary, our lawyers at Oney + Kim Family Law, PLLC, will provide you with a detailed explanation of your options and the personal attention that your case deserves. We will represent your interests in all contested aspects of the divorce, including:
- Asset division – The division of assets and debts is the most contentious aspect of many divorces. We have the knowledge and experience to make sure the property is valuated accurately and that you get an equitable outcome in dividing assets.
- Child custody and visitation – We can help you create a parenting plan that will protect your time with your children, make sure they are cared for well and protect your interests.
- Spousal support – Whether you are the paying spouse or the spouse who will be receiving spousal support pursuant to a divorce, you want to make sure you are getting fair treatment and an equitable outcome. Although there are spousal support guidelines the court follows, we can petition for a deviation from the guidelines, if appropriate, to make sure your interests are protected.
- Child support – Similar to spousal support, we can help you determine what the support order will be and petition for a deviation to make sure your child is properly provided for and your financial interests are protected.
We will advocate strongly on your behalf to ensure that your rights and interests are protected and the interests of your children are met throughout your divorce process.
