However, we know that there are a variety of reasons why this is not ideal or practical, such as for the sake of the children or finances. Whatever your reasoning may be, our Scott County MN legal separation attorney at Meinerts Law is here to assist you.

If you would like to speak with a professional who is knowledgeable about the ins and outs of separation, contact us now.

What Is a Legal Separation?

A legal separation process is very similar to what you go through in a divorce, in that you will discuss many of the same issues and live apart. Having legal representation on your side can make the process go much easier for everyone involved, especially to eliminate stress being put on your children.

A few of the topics you will need to come to an agreement on include:

  • If alimony or spousal support will be paid
  • Who will care for your shared children
  • Who will pay child support and how much
  • Who will live in the family home
  • How your assets will be divided
