Uncontested divorce in Minnesota

Thinking about the dissolution of marriage, couples of Minnesota have two options:

  • To file for a contested divorce. Having unresolvable disputes concerning children, alimony, or property, spouses have no other option but to involve a third party to end their marriage. In this case, they have to hire an attorney to represent each side in the court. Moreover, there will be numerous trials where both spouses will have to testify so that the judge can make a final decision based on evidence presented by both parties. This kind of divorce is extremely expensive, stressful, and time-consuming.
  • File for an uncontested dissolution. If both spouses have agreed on all the divorce-related issues and just need their marriage to be over, they can easily file for an uncontested divorce. In this case, they do not need to hire a lawyer to solve their disputes. Of course, such type of divorce is much cheaper than a contested one and is finalized as soon as the judge issues a specific dissolution document.

However, opting for an uncontested dissolution, you still might face some problems. For example, you need to collect and fill out all the papers that are required for your case. This process is rather complex and tiresome, and in the end, your packet may be rejected by the court if you do not answer everything correctly. How to avoid such a hassle? Use OnlineDivorcer!

Getting a divorce in Minnesota with a child

Child custody and support are among the aspects that have to be resolved by divorcing spouses before the dissolution can be finalized.

  • Usually, the judge is inclined to grant the joint legal custody to parents if there are no records of abuse and neglect. Spouses can also provide the judge with a plan, which will be accepted if it does not contradict the child’s best interests.
  • In Minnesota, a child cannot decide where to live until he or she is 18 years old.
  • If parents are unable to come to an agreement, the judge has to reach a decision based on the following factors: relationship of the child with both parents, financial situation and household of both spouses, child’s wishes (however, it depends on his or her age), mental and physical health of all parties, etc.
  • Child support in the state is determined by the Minnesota Child Support Guidelines.
