Family Law Cases We Handle

We confidently and routinely help Minnesota families resolve many types of family law issues. Our team is made up of skilled litigators who will aggressively protect your interests in and out of the courtroom. If you prefer to avoid the courts, we can also capably assist with other forms of dispute resolution. Our family lawyers in Eagan can assist you with cases involving:

  • Divorce. Going through a divorce is never easy, especially when children are involved. When a contested divorce is filed, a family court will decide disputed matters of property division, spousal support, and child custody and visitation. Our team knows how to construct persuasive arguments and will work to ensure your best interests are represented throughout each stage of the process. We can also help qualifying couples seek summary dissolutions.
  • Divorce Mediation. Divorce litigation can be extremely costly and time-consuming. Many couples use mediation as an expedited and less expensive alternative to divorce. An impartial mediator will work with the spouses to reach a mutually acceptable resolution. Issues that cannot be resolved through mediation can still be decided in court.
  • Child Custody. Courts consider a myriad of factors when deciding matters of child custody. Our lawyers will help you maintain and protect your parental right to a continued relationship with your child. We will work to negotiate a fair custody arrangement that is in your child’s best interests. Our team can also assist with order enforcement, visitation rights, grandparents’ rights, and modifications to existing orders.
  • Child Support. Each parent’s current financial situation and the child’s unique circumstances will factor into Minnesota child support calculations. We can work to negotiate an equitable payment plan that meets the child’s financial needs.
  • Restraining Orders. If you believe you may be in danger, you should immediately contact law enforcement and request an emergency protective order that prevents your abuser from contacting you. We can then help you seek a full order or protection.
  • Juvenile Delinquency and Dependency. Our team will aggressively advocate for you and work to ensure your parental rights are not violated by state or local governments.
  • Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements. We can help you create enforceable legal documents that protect both your and your partner’s interests.

We know what is at stake in conflicts involving family law and understand how these matters are adjudicated in Minnesota courts. Our lawyers will be by your side throughout each step of your legal process and will work tirelessly to deliver the results you deserve.
