Experiencing divorce (marital dissolution) involves taking challenging steps and making difficult, yet essential decisions about your future. Divorce requires dividing assets and debts as well as determining custody, parenting time, and financial support for a child or spouse, all in accordance with the complex nuances of Minnesota law. The legal process can be stressful both emotionally and financially, even more so without an experienced divorce attorney by your side to protect your interests.
As a divorce lawyer, Tara L. Smith strives to ease the disruption of divorce in your life and offer clarity when you most need it. Smith Family Law PLLC represents clients through every stage of divorce, including mediation, negotiation, settlement, and, when necessary, litigation. Working together with you, she gathers the information you need to make informed decisions while providing you with the options to proceed with confidence. She has the skills, resources, and experience to successfully help you through an amicable or not-so-amicable (contested) divorce with the dignity and service you deserve.
Assistance For Those Who Have Already Divorced
If you are already divorced or have a court order as a never-married parent, you may wish to modify a prior custody arrangement, parenting time schedule, or child support or spousal maintenance obligation. Tara assists both former and new clients in considering whether a post-decree modification may be necessary when incomes increase or decrease, parents relocate or remarry, or children emancipate; or when there are significant parenting time challenges and other ongoing disagreements.
However, because each of these types of modification requires meeting several elements of complex Minnesota statutes, Tara provides thoughtful analysis to either support or defend any claim for modification. She represents and guides clients through every step of modification matters, including gathering relevant information, mediation, negotiation, settlement, and, when necessary, litigation.
