Minnesota Contested Divorce - Flanders Law Firm LLCThe firm handles contested divorces in Minnesota.

Joseph M. Flanders has experience in trials, hearings, and many types of family law litigation.

Although I encourage mediation and settlement whenever possible, I am not afraid to go to trial when it is necessary to help my clients.

At times, clients need an aggressive lawyer who knows the law and how to enforce it.

I have handled multi-day trials for clients involving child custody, child support, spousal maintenance, division of marital property, and paternity issues.   I know how to present evidence that helps my clients achieve the best result possible.

What to expect in a contested divorce

Many people who come to me are nervous about their case.  Often, people feel helpless and have many questions about how to receive a fair result.

If you are faced with a contested divorce, you should keep in mind some of the following things:

  • prepare all of the documentation you have that you feel will support your case;
  • contact potential witnesses that you feel will testify on your behalf;
  • request any protective or restraining orders you feel are necessary;
  • do not hide, conceal, or destroy marital assets;
  • gather all documents related to marital debt;
  • gather all documents showing income and health insurance for any minor children;
  • contact a lawyer about obtaining spousal maintenance and/or child support

Often, it is important to put your best foot forward to speak with a lawyer before you make any rash decisions.

Contested divorces are not easy.  They often involve a lot of time and money. However, speaking with the right MN divorce attorney can save you a lot of heartache and headache down the road.
