Making Informed Decisions About Your Financial Future

One of the major concerns every couple will face is how their assets will be divided. Many people are unsure if they can maintain their lifestyle on their salary alone. During this confusing time, it’s important to have an attorney you can trust. Parvey, Larson, and McLean, PLLC, has helped clients throughout North Dakota and western Minnesota.

What You Need To Know About Divorce, Assets And Support

Each state has different laws put in place that must be followed. Neither Minnesota nor North Dakota are community property states. This means that properties are not necessarily split 50/50. Instead, a court will determine what is fair. Judges look at a number of factors, including the earning potential of each spouse, the duration of the marriage and the health of each partner. Spousal support may be appropriate. It is important to know that these decisions can be made on your own, instead of by a court ruling.

Another important piece to consider is how your children will be taken care of. Again, our goal is to make these decisions amicably between both parties. If this cannot be done, a judge will decide if child support is necessary. It depends on a variety of aspects, such as where the child goes to school, who the primary caregiver is and what is in their best interest.
