What can be accomplished during a divorce

Although many Minnesota residents have some idea of what to expect when it comes to divorce, going through the actual process can be difficult and stressful. Furthermore, the prospect of ending a significant relationship and not getting to spend time with the children every day can be difficult to mentally process. As long as a person is realistic about the divorce, however, there is a chance that they'll be able to move on and be satisfied once the separation is finalized.

There are many things a divorce can do. For example, the divorce process will determine what marital property belongs to which person. This involves real estate, financial assets and physical items. The divorce will also determine what financial obligations each person has, such as spousal and child support. In addition, spouses will get a parenting plan that can benefit the children.

However, a divorce cannot guarantee equal or precise division of assets or time that a parent gets to spend with the children. It also cannot ensure that a parent gets to maintain the standard of living they have become used to due to the other parent's income or joint income. Finally, it cannot resolve emotional problems or ensure that parents can have a civil relationship once the divorce is finalized.

In many cases, the underlying causes of a separation can make it difficult to reach an amicable divorce agreement. If the former couple is going through a contested divorce and cannot reach agreements when it comes to property division or child custody, a family law attorney may handle the negotiations. The lawyer may also advise the client on what outcomes can be expected.
