Frequently Asked Questions About Your Minnesota Divorce
Our divorce lawyers know and understand that if you are contemplating a divorce or if you have been served with divorce papers, you probably have a lot of questions. Here, our lawyers answer some of the more commonly asked questions. But every case is different. For answers to your specific questions, we offer a free, initial consultation.
Do I have to prove that my spouse caused our divorce?
You do not need to have a reason to get divorced in Minnesota. Minnesota is considered a no-fault divorce state, which means that you do not have to prove one party was at fault for the breakdown of the marriage. You can file for a divorce based on irreconcilable differences.
What if I want to get divorced, but my spouse does not? Or what if my spouse wants a divorce, but I don’t?
In the state of Minnesota, you do not have to agree to get a divorce. One spouse can file the necessary paperwork and still begin the divorce process. A spouse does not have to participate in the divorce process.
If a spouse does not respond after they’ve been served with divorce papers, the court can grant a default divorce, and make decisions regarding the division of property, spousal support and child custody without the non-responsive spouse’s input. It is always better if both parties can work together toward a resolution on these issues whenever possible.
How can I get divorced in Minnesota?
In order to get divorced in Minnesota, you need to have lived in the state for at least six months. Every marriage is unique, and every divorce will be as unique as the marriage. Usually, after the divorce papers have been filed, the parties will work together to reach agreements on the division of assets, child custody and support. Often, parties will use a mediator to help them resolve these issues as amicably as possible. In the event the parties cannot agree, the parties can go to court and a judge will decide the contested issues.
How does property get divided in a Minnesota divorce?
In the state of Minnesota, property is divided equitably. As an equitable distribution state, this means that property does not mean everything is split 50-50. Rather, all of a party’s assets and debts will be divided fairly. For example, if one spouse stays in the house, the other spouse will receive assets to compensate for their share in the house.
How is child custody decided in Minnesota? Can a child choose who they want to live with?
In the state of Minnesota, the court will always consider child custody issues based on the best interests of the child. While there is no set age for a child to be able to choose who they want to live with, the court will always take their preference into account. A child who is old enough to articulate their thoughts, needs and wishes will have an opportunity to express their preference.
