Filing for Divorce in Minnesota

As a no-fault divorce state, Minnesota does not require you to have a reason beyond irreconcilable differences to file for divorce. This also means that courts do not consider misconduct when entering a final divorce order.

During the process, you will have to navigate issues involving:

  • Property division: Property will be divided equitably – not necessarily equally – taking into consideration the length of the marriage, any prior marriages, and each spouse’s contributions.
  • Child custody: If you and your spouse have children together, you will have to come to an agreement about how custody will be arranged. If you cannot agree on an arrangement, the court will step in and order one.
  • Child support: If you have children together, you may also have to determine child support payments. Child support is generally paid to the parent with primary custody.
  • Alimony: In some situations, one spouse may be awarded alimony as a form of financial support. We can help you whether you are seeking alimony or hoping to avoid paying it.

The team at Joe Irby Law Firm is equipped to assist you with these negotiations, keeping your unique needs and circumstances in mind from start to finish.
