As a Minnesota divorce attorney, a question that is often posed to me by my divorce and child custody clients is, “Can’t my spouse (or the other party) and I just agree to something on our own?” Normally, my answer to that question is a resounding “yes” the more you can agree to, the less there is to argue between the attorneys and the less Court involvement that will be necessary. What this normally also means is the divorce or custody proceeding will be easier on your pocket book as well.
However, there are a few exceptions to the “lets just agree to this and follow it” approach. First, if the agreement pertains to minor children in any manner, the Court will always apply an independent “best interests of the child” analysis. In other words, just because you agree to something, if that agreement impacts minor children, the Court could reject the agreement.
With regard to child support, there is a legal presumption that the statutory child support guidelines must be used in all child support determinations. If the parties wish to agree to a different amount, they must provide to the Court an explanation on why this “deviation from the guidelines” is in the children’s best interests.
There is nothing that bothers legal clients more than when their lawyer doesn’t take their calls or call them back promptly. This simply drives clients mad. Does this mean the lawyer is avoiding them or is there a valid reason for such inaction? It depends.
The lawyer-client relationship can be a strong one, but it usually is not consistent. Instead, it tends to start strong, lag for a bit and then pick up strength again later on in the proceedings. This has nothing to do with the personalities of the attorney or client. Instead, the legal system involves a whole lot of waiting in many instances. Filing a lawsuit can be very emotional, but it then can take a year or more before you actually go to trial. This delay is even true in administrative matters like filing a trademark. The Patent and Trademark Office is so backed up that it actually sends out a postcard to trademark filers after four months just to let them know the filing has been received!
So, why isn’t your lawyer calling you? The first reason is they are busy. You are not their only client. If they are in the middle of a three week trial, they don’t have time to call you. Most will try to have a paralegal or secretary give you a ring, but this can slip sometimes because they trial takes all their attention.
Divorce is not a joke and it has been found through various surveys that more than 40% marriage cases ends up in divorce out here in United States. This is not a small percentage and it has been found that majority of these cases ends up through violence. A single marriage might cost around $28000. However, a single divorce also needs expenses equal to buying the car. This is certainly not a small amount. Thus, divorce is not a cheap process. However, it is a necessity and most of the people want to have it as they find out that it is the only solution.
There are many kinds of divorce forms and all of them have some specific job to complete. There are separation forms, divorce decree form, uncontested divorce forms and many more. They are available in court, market, and they are available online as well. The free divorce forms however, are available online only and you cannot get them free anywhere else.
It is important to know the divorce laws in detail; otherwise, it is hard to search for the divorce forms. There are generally two kinds of divorce possible. The first one is the adversarial and the second one is done through mediation. Mediation can be cheaper but the adversarial cases are always costly. Generally, in these kinds of cases, more money is required and hence most of the couples try to find the cheaper method for divorce. It is definitely true that majority of divorce cases in United States are headed by the violence.

You would think it would be easy to get people to admit that they want to be rich and then take action, wouldn’t you? But no, people are very worried about firstly admitting they want to be wealthier, and then very fearful of taking action. So, as a Wealth Coach, I usually prefer to talk about Financial Intelligence rather than Wealth Creation.
In order for people to get excited enough to make the leap and join The Money Gym, we have to talk about becoming a millionaire, and the millionaires we have helped create, because most people can’t often be bothered for anything less.
