FAMILY LAW & DIVORCE ATTORNEY
Experienced, Compassionate Family Law Representation
Whether you are thinking about a divorce, are ready to file for divorce, or you simply have issues relating to custody or adoption, we are here to help and to offer the legal assistance you need to achieve your goals. Our attorneys are well-known and highly respected litigators who have fought for hundreds of families across Minnesota.
Minnesota is a no-fault divorce state. What that means is that the law does not care whether one person cheated on the other, or whether one person is a “bad apple.” However, Judges are people, and people oftentimes lean toward the one they believe is the “good person” when making difficult legal decisions. That is why you need a highly skilled attorney like those at Cadem Law Group who can present your case in the best possible light to obtain every strategic advantage.
Divorce / Dissolution
Divorce and dissolution mean the same thing: an irretrievable breakdown of the marital relationship has occurred and one or more person in the marriage wishes to leave the marriage. In Minnesota, both parties do not need to agree to the divorce. At Cadem Law Group, we understand that going through a divorce is a stressful and sensitive time. We are here to ease your concerns and anxiety about your life as you move forward. Divorces affect everything from child custody and parenting time to child support and spousal maintenance. An equitable division of marital property and debts will impact your finances moving forward. It is important to hire an attorney that will skillfully and carefully address every detail necessary to ensure a happy and financially healthy life moving forward.
People across the state have relied upon Cadem Law Group to meet all of their legal needs. We recognize that each divorce is unique and we strive to work in a collaborative way to reach an amicable resolution. However, sometimes settlement out of court is not possible and we are fully prepared to litigate matters if necessary. Cadem Law Group prides itself on having experienced and aggressive litigation attorneys who thrive in the courtroom.
In Minnesota, there are two types of custody: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody, which is presumed to be jointly shared between parents, determines who gets to make important decisions for a child. This includes decisions about education, medical care, education, and religion. Physical custody generally means where children primarily reside. Determining custody will affect your child for the foreseeable future. Parents across the state have relied upon Cadem Law Group to guide them in custody matters. At Cadem Law Group, we truly care about your child and advocating for a custody determination in your child’s best interest.
Parental alienation is an unhealthy reality in many custody and parenting time disputes. Parental alienation is when a child becomes estranged from one parent as a result of manipulation by another parent. Alienation can include false allegations of abuse, child protection reports, psychological manipulation, speaking poorly about the other parent in front of a child, and emotionally abusing children by making them feel guilty about their relationship with the other parent. Often, a child will side with the alienating parent. It is important to stop the behaviors before they severely and permanently damage the parent-child relationship. At Cadem Law Group, we have successfully tried cases involving parental alienation and have helped repair parent-child relationships by modifying custody or parenting time based on parental alienation.
Cadem Law Group has represented countless clients across the state in Harassment Restraining Order (HRO) and Order for Protection (OFP) matters. Often, domestic abuse is involved in family law cases, because one party committed abuse against the other party or the children, or because one party has fabricated allegations of abuse in order to get a leg up in the divorce or custody matter. All allegations of domestic abuse should be taken seriously. The effect of a Harassment Restraining Order or Order for Protection can affect a party’s rights significantly. A party may be removed from their home, lose custody, restrict locations they may travel to, or even lose their rights to own firearms.
