Making Sure Your Family Comes First

Divorce Is Hard, But It Doesn’t Have To Be Destructive

A divorce is probably the most personally disruptive experience a person can go through. Whether or not the divorce was something you wanted, the reality is that it’s here, and you probably need an attorney. But what do you want from that attorney?

At Alderman Law, P.L.L.C., our founder, Justin M. Alderman, has spent his career providing sound, compassionate legal advice to people going through family law issues. He understands Minnesota’s family law codes and uses that knowledge to educate our clients on what they face. With Alderman Law, P.L.L.C., you can count on attentive service and compassionate representation.

What You Need To Start The Divorce Process In Minnesota

Minnesota is a no-fault divorce state with several low-conflict ways to pursue the dissolution of a marriage. Depending on your circumstances, you can pursue:

  • Summary dissolution: Provided there are no children, no joint property, assets under $25,000 and other factors, you can pursue this avenue with just a few forms.
  • Joint dissolution: If you and your spouse do not meet the requirements for a summary dissolution, you may pursue this option, provided you and your spouse agree on the key questions of the divorce.

However, if you and your spouse have a dispute over property division, child custody or child support, it will become a “contested divorce.”

A contested divorce is the more “familiar” type of divorce that you may see in pop culture, but with a skilled lawyer, it doesn’t have to be a high-conflict trial. With experienced, compassionate representation, you can move through even the most contentious points with confidence.
