Empathetic Family Law Attorney
When you have family law concerns, you want to know what you are up against and what options you have available. At my office in Shakopee, I will give you an honest assessment of your options, so you know what to expect from the family law process. From divorce and separation proceedings, to child custody and parenting time issues, I can provide solutions for a wide range of family law issues. This also includes issues relating to:
Committed to Every Client
The divorce process can be lengthy depending on the number and nature of disputed issues. If there are disputed issues with everything from parenting time to property division, it can take many months to reach a resolution. I will take a close look at every aspect of your divorce in order to come up with a solution, particularly within these primary areas:
- Child Support & Spousal Maintenance
- Child Custody
- Parenting time
- Property Division/Debt allocation
- Tax implications
When I begin my representation, I will listen to your concerns, answer any questions you may have, and begin the discovery process. After gathering all pertinent information regarding your divorce, I will discuss with you the challenges you face, the issues that may arise, and the options you have available.
If you are separated while your divorce case is pending, you may need a temporary court order. If one is necessary, the objective is to obtain an order by agreement if possible. But if we are unable to resolve temporary issues by agreement, I will file a motion and formally request the court to issue a temporary order.
In all cases there is significant value in settling your divorce case out of court, and my objective is to help you reach a settlement agreement tailored to fit your needs. In all cases, I encourage our clients to explore alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods, such as mediation. However, if a settlement cannot be reached, I will be ready to protect your rights in court.
