Divorce in Minnesota

Divorces aren’t always easy. It is a life-altering decision that can be very overwhelming. There are also different types of this legal process to consider including Contested, Uncontested, and Collaborative. Each has a different approach and typically comes with different outcomes. Therefore, it’s important to figure out how to go through the legal process of a divorce that best suits you and your family.

Contested Divorce

This approach is when the two parties cannot agree either on the terms or the divorce itself. The former spouses may agree on some of the matters, but if the two disagree on any part of it then it is considered Contested.

Some terms that may be disputed between the two include child custody, child support, parenting time, division of assets, and spousal maintenance.  


Uncontested Divorce

Uncontested, unlike Contested, is when both parties agree on the terms without having to go to court. This is the most ideal type as the court does not need to divide up any assets or make decisions about child support or custody.

This type of process is much quicker, more financially beneficial, and is less complicated. Compromise is an important part of this approach and, if achieved, the chances of success are much greater.


Collaborative Divorce

This legal process is when the two parties decide they want to avoid court and achieve a settlement that they both can agree on. As a result, this method can be very beneficial to both parties and is very cost effective as well.

In this case, the parties, though working collaboratively to achieve a negotiated settlement, are not neutral.  Each lawyer provides his or her client with independent legal advice regarding any proposed agreements.
