Divorce (Dissolution)

Divorce can be a complicated, difficult situation for everyone involved. The experienced, compassionate family law attorneys of Bolt Hoffer Boyd understand this, and will help you through this challenging process.

When we first meet with someone regarding divorce or dissolution, we ask questions to better understand the situation and determine the best course of action:

  • Are there children from the marriage?
  • What assets are involved? These could include homes, vehicles, retirement accounts, businesses, and household items.
  • Are there debts, such as credit card debts, student loans, mortgages, or vehicle loans?
  • What is the employment status of each party?
  • How are finances arranged? How are bills paid?
  • How is everyone getting along?

When children are involved, there are many things to consider. For instance, where the children will live (physical custody or primary residence), how much time the children will spend with each parent (parenting time), how decisions will be made for the children in the future (legal custody), and how each parent will contribute to the children’s financial future (child support).

The knowledgeable family law attorneys of Bolt Hoffer Boyd can help you understand the options available for your children, allowing you to make informed decisions.

Divorce can be frightening and uncertain, especially when one partner is financially dependent on the other and needs to know whether they may be awarded alimony or spousal support.

We will also guide you through the process of asset and debt division. In Minnesota, the court will make an “equitable division” of the marital estate, which are the assets and debts accrued during the marriage. This can include homes, cabins, bank accounts, retirement and pension accounts, brokerage accounts, and more. It will also include allocation of debts such as mortgages, credit cards, and loans.

Our divorce attorneys work to ease these fears during the divorce process. We discuss what to expect each step of the way, including decisions that will need to be made for you and your family and whether you will need to appear in court.
