    "The price was so good, I had to do my divorce with you. I didn't want to pay a lawyer $800 dollars to do an uncontested divorce. We already knew what we wanted on how to divide up the house. I'm grateful I found you when I did. Going through the stress of a divorce is hard enough without having financial stress as well. Thank you so much."

Minnesota Grounds for Divorce
Irrevocable breakdown of the marriage

 

NOTE: Regardless of the reason of the breakdown of the marriage or the reason for filing for divorce in Minnesota, the Divorce Do It Yourself Service will do divorces on an "Agreed" basis or a “Default” basis.

  • An Agreed Divorce , defined by Minnesota divorce guidelines and Minnesota divorce laws, is a scenario where the spouses agree on the terms of the divorce such as Minnesota property distribution, Minnesota child support, or Minnesota child custody. Most of our clients (75%) prefer the Agreed Divorce method and both spouses sign the divorce papers and are agreed to the terms of divorce.

  • A Default Divorce , from the Minnesota divorce guidelines and MN divorce laws, is a divorce where your spouse doesn’t sign the Minnesota Divorce paperwork or Minnesota divorce forms. They simply doesn’t do anything at all… with the divorce. They simply default on their side of the case. And YOU who filed FIRST get whatever you ask for in the originally filed divorce forms. NICE

Missing Spouse in Minnesota
If your spouse is missing and you cannot locate him/her, after diligent effort, you may still get a divorce in Minnesota. It may involve the small expense of running a newspaper ad or something similar. We help you through the process with our FREE Missing Spouse Package.

Wife’s Last Name Change
The wife may, if she chooses, receive her Maiden Name back during the divorce. Our Divorce Service includes this name change in our service for FREE.

Child Custody Laws in Minnesota
Non Legalese Definitions: (source: divorce process in Minnesota and MN divorce laws)

  • Visitation is the Plan both spouses have on WHERE the children will live and WHEN the children will see each parent
  • Legal Custody is different than Visitation. It is the ability to make decisions in the lives of the children. Such as, which church they will go to and where the children will attend school.
  • Physical Custody Is the choice of where the children will live and which parent they live with.

Minnesota Child Custody in a shared arrangement, is the usual preferred method of our Minnesota divorce clients. If a sole-custody arrangement is what you would like, then there is usually a very good reason for it. Usually the financial status of a parent is not usually considered for allocating any parental rights and responsibilities. Shared Custody or Sole Child Custody is to be awarded according to the “best interests of the child.” That is the gold standard.

Minnesota Child Support Laws
If the parents are unable to agree to an amount of child support, there are guidelines that determine the amount of support based on the Minnesota Child Support Guidelines. The guideline amount is presumed to arrive at an amount of support that is in the child's best interest. But, most divorcing spouses agree to a figure on their own, that will work just fine. Also, in most situations, -0- Child Support is OK if both spouses are working and can manage. This is also true for a Legal Separation in Minnesota.

Minnesota Divorce Laws for Property Distribution
In an Uncontested "Agreed Divorce" or "Default Divorce" the property is divided so that both parties agree to the division. The main concern here is to agree to the property division so that it doesn’t create a fight that one party will want to go to a Minnesota divorce lawyer or divorce attorney to make the case into a Contested Divorce. Then you will have to incur the fees of a lawyer too.

  • Debts Most divorcing spouses set out who will pay what debts as part of their marital settlement agreement during the divorce process, and close all of their joint accounts.
  • Minnesota Alimony Laws (Minnesota Spousal Support Laws) In an Uncontested Divorce, Alimony may be awarded to either spouse for their support and maintenance after the divorce. Both parties must agree to it. Since most spouses are working, alimony (if awarded at all), is usually for a shorter period of time, and smaller amount than in the past. In the Minnesota divorce laws for alimony, it is possible for alimony to be paid in a lump sum payment of money or a payment plan. Alimony is not required for a person to get divorced in Minnesota.

Local Court Filing Fees
The Local Court filing fees are not included in the price of our service. To file your divorce in Minnesota, the court fees must usually be paid when you file the divorce at your local county courthouse. It is best to call your local county court and ask what the fees are in your County to file your divorce papers. Regardless of whether you are going through a divorce service, using a Minnesota divorce kit, using a divorce attorney (or divorce lawyer), or doing a nearly free divorce in Minnesota, you will always be paying the local court fees.
