Experienced Representation For Divorce
When you are going through a divorce, you may be in a state of shock, or you may be impatient to get on with the next phase of your life. Either way, how you handle the divorce process can have long-term consequences for your finances and your family life for many years to come. It is important to have the help of a skilled lawyer to stand up for your rights and your long-term interests.
At Wetzel Law Firm PA in Brainerd, Minnesota, we help people with many issues in family law, including:
- Property division
- Child custody
- Child support
- Order for protection
Our founding attorney has been practicing law for more than 20 years, and has dealt with numerous issues in family law. Still, all of us at Wetzel Law Firm PA feel that no two divorces are exactly the same, just as no two clients are exactly the same. With that in mind, when you are our client, we take the time to learn about you and your financial and legal goals, so we can better help you reach them.
What Is No-Fault Divorce?
Minnesota has a no-fault divorce system. This means that, ordinarily, you don’t have to allege that either party was at fault for the divorce. You must merely agree that your differences are irreconcilable.
Compared to the way divorces were resolved in previous generations, the no-fault system is generally faster and less expensive. Because most issues are resolved through negotiating a settlement, instead of a judgment by the court, the no-fault system also gives you greater control over your results.
When we represent people in divorce, we guide them through the process, help them gather all the evidence we need and work hard to protect their interests in negotiation, mediation or wherever the case takes us.
Wetzel Law Firm PA represents clients in Brainerd, Minnesota, and the surrounding area, including Crow Wing, Morrison, Aitkin, Cass, Mille Lacs and Todd counties. In addition to divorce and family law, we represent clients in criminal defense and business matters.
