There is no getting around the fact that for most people in Minnesota, divorce is an emotionally difficult process. Whether the decision to divorce is made by mutual agreement or by one spouse, it initiates a painful process of untangling bonds that may have taken years to develop.
Throughout the divorce process a spouse typically has a lot of questions. These include what to do with the house, who will get custody of the children and whether one spouse will be obligated to pay alimony to the other.
The questions a spouse has will depend on the unique circumstances of each couple. A couple in which both partners have well-paying careers may be more concerned about property division. Parents of young children will understandably be most concerned about child custody and visitation issues. If one spouse stayed at home to care for the children, he or she may be most concerned about getting spousal support while easing back into the work force.
