03/16/2022

If your child was recently born (or will be soon) and you are not married to your child’s mother, you may have several questions. You want to be involved in your child’s life, including having the right to visitation or even joint custody. But what do you have to do in order to claim those rights – and the responsibilities that come with them?

Establishing paternity

When a couple conceive a child outside of marriage, there is no legal presumption of paternity. This means that the first step will be for you to establish that you are the father of the child.

You can do this by signing and notarizing a document declaring that you are the father, and filing it with the Department of Health. You have ten months from when the child is born to acknowledge your status as father under this procedure. After that time, you will have to start a separate legal action to gain recognition as the father.

A divorcing couple will often focus on urgent financial matters such as property division, support and custody. Since these matters often require numerous negotiations, heated debates and compromises, many couples are happy to make it through to the end of the process. Unfortunately, they must pay careful attention to the equitable division of debt responsibility as well.

Rather than the community property standard, Minnesota follows the method of equitable distribution in the divorce process. This means that while not everything is split down the middle for a 50/50 division, both assets and debts are carefully examined to reach a fair distribution.

When it comes to divorce, affluent couples face many of the same issues as other couples. Similar issues, though, often are magnified. Meanwhile, other matters are unique and distinctly applicable to them due to their financial standing.

One such issue is property division, which turns into a complex exercise due to the assets involved. Some of those assets such as businesses, stock options and luxury items may be difficult to evaluate and distribute. But the spotlight shines on them, nonetheless.

12/21/2020

Your marriage crumbled gradually. The once trusting bond between you and your spouse severed thanks to a combination of things. But trust was at the foundation or more accurately, lack of trust. Too many things were hidden from you, too many questions were unanswered, and it was time to break away.

Now, as you file for divorce, you must understand the importance of protecting yourself and your rightful assets. And part of that divorce journey includes uncovering some of the things that your estranged spouse may have kept from you. Namely hidden assets that are rightfully yours.

11/30/2020

For years, prenuptial agreements have had a bad reputation. Many have thought you only need to worry about a prenup if you are wealthy. Or if you get a prenup, you are dooming your marriage even before it begins. But in recent years, more and more couples are seeking prenuptial agreements, especially among the millennial generation.

That’s because younger people are realizing why every couple can benefit from having a prenuptial agreement.

10/29/2020

You and your spouse decided that getting a divorce was the right choice for you after you had a drawn out argument that finally resulted in you both giving up on compromising. You were tired of fighting every day, and you realized that your life together wasn’t what it should be.

Now that you’ve decided to divorce, you and your spouse have gone to your respective attorneys and started looking into collecting documentation on your assets. Your children are all grown and out of your home, so you haven’t considered telling them yet. After all, this divorce shouldn’t affect them, right?

10/12/2020

At the time of your divorce, the terms set forth in you and your ex’s parenting plan were likely workable. Yet, as your children grow up, their needs and schedules may have changed. And you or your ex may also have experienced changes in circumstance that have affected your ability to parent. If any of these events have arisen, you must understand if they warrant modifications to your custody order or parenting time schedule.

For business owners in Anoka County, divorce can mean more than the dissolution of their marriage. The future of their company could be at stake.

That is because, many times, an ownership stake in a business is a marital asset. This could be true whether you and your spouse built the business together, or if one of you has worked on the business while the other focused on keeping the house and raising the children. In Minnesota, both direct and indirect contributions to a business entitle a spouse to an equitable (or reasonable) share of the business.
