Our Areas of Practice and Experience
At the Meinerts Law Office, P.A., we are committed to a productive, goal-oriented approach to divorce. Whenever possible, family law attorney Merlyn Meinerts encourages clients to use mediation or collaborative divorce to decide the important issues of divorce and family restructuring. If your divorce needs to be litigated, Mr. Meinerts is an experienced trial lawyer who will make sure your rights and interests are respected in all aspects of divorce, including:
- Child custody issues such as determining legal custody and/or physical custody (where the child will live and how much time the child will spend with each parent), relocation and grandparents' rights
- Minnesota child support guidelines, which underwent a significant revision in 2007
- Spousal maintenance, which may be provided in long-term marriages if there is a disparity in income
- Property division, including the identification of marital and nonmarital property and business division
Recently, Attorney Merlyn Meinerts completed training to serve as a certified early neutral evaluator to provide social and financial feedback to divorcing couples. This process, which is being implemented in several Minnesota jurisdictions, allows couples to become involved in the process shortly after filing for divorce, providing opportunity to quickly and amicably develop an agreement without the unnecessary expenditure of fees, time and emotional energy.
