Learn About Your Divorce Options And Rights In Minnesota
Divorce is never an easy decision. It is a time of high stress and emotional turmoil. Your decisions may be affected by the pain you are in as opposed to what is best in the long run for you and your family. You want to have a seasoned divorce lawyer who understands the divorce process and how it will impact your life.
At the Minneapolis law firm of Groshek Law PA, we will take a holistic view of your divorce case. We want to hear the story behind your story. We ask for this in-depth information so we can give you the best possible representation.
Helping You Move On By Understanding ‘The Big Picture’
Divorce rarely “just happens.” It usually stems from deeper troubles. If we can help you identify the emotions that are driving your decisions, we can help you figure out the best way to settle your case and move forward with your life.
Many people believe the only way to handle the dissolution of a marriage is to go to court. In reality, that is giving the state power over all decisions regarding your future. Our practice is for you to work with your spouse on as many major decisions as the two of you can work out together through divorce mediation, so you both feel like you have had some control over the outcome.
We have trained mediators at our firm. However, if there are outstanding issues that need to be litigated, we have no fear of taking your case before a judge, and we prepare for all eventualities.
What Is A No-Fault Divorce?
Because Minnesota is a no-fault divorce state, individuals are usually entitled to divorces without placing the blame on either party. A petitioner is pretty much guaranteed to have his or her request for a divorce granted, even if the other spouse does not want a divorce or will not agree to any proposals to divide property or arrange custody.
