Burnsville Contested Divorce Lawyers

Protect The Interests of Those in Dakota County & South Metro

There are circumstances when the determination of a court is needed on issues such as marital property division, child custody and visitation, and spousal maintenance.

A contested divorce generally begins with a motion for temporary relief. Our South Metro contested divorce attorneys will seek temporary orders for child custody, visitation, child support, spousal maintenance and occupancy of a homestead while your divorce is in process.

You don't have to face this intimidating process alone. Contact us today to request an initial consultation with our team.

Understanding the Process

After the temporary hearing, there will be a pretrial conference with you, your spouse and your attorneys to discuss your case with the judge. The judge will ask both sides if there is a possibility of negotiated resolution. If there is none, a divorce trial will be scheduled. Appropriate deadlines will be set for discovery and for each side to provide exhibitions and a witness list to the court.

The final step is a trial, which is comprised of testimony and exhibits. Rules of evidence apply, and information is presented to a judge in a formal manner. Witnesses can include experts, friends, neighbors, and teachers.

Meinerts Law knows how to boil down complex and confusing aspects of a contested divorce case and present those facts in a logical manner that is easy for a judge to understand and accept. In any divorce trial, what makes the difference is how your lawyer prepares your case and presents it to the judge.
