FAMILY LAW DIVISION
The Family Law Division of Kassius Benson Law, P.A. represents clients in a diverse range of family law issues. We handle complex litigation involving all areas of divorce, child custody, parenting time, spousal maintenance, division of property and assets as well as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements and contracts. We provide Minnesota families innovative legal strategies they need to face the complex legal aspects of any family law claim.
The attorneys assigned to the Family Law Division work exclusively in the area of family law and the issues of family law, which includes prenuptial agreements, postnuptial contracts, divorce, child custody, support and maintenance.
We understand that family law issues such as divorce and child custody are traumatic and stressful situations. But, we also know that during this time of loss you will be asked to make legal and financial decisions that will affect the rest of your life. We are prepared to offer strategic solutions, whether through negotiation or litigation, to assist you in getting the best desired outcome.
At Kassius Benson Law, P.A., we understand that coping with family disputes and divorce can be frustrating and confusing, putting the well-being of your family, your children, and your property at risk. We are dedicated to empowering you with the information and counsel you need to understand Minnesota family law and make an informed decision about the family law issues affecting your life.
Our Family Law practice includes the following areas:
Alternative Dispute Resolution: In family law cases, alternative dispute resolution or mediating your disputes with your spouse has many benefits. It is a much less expensive way to come to an agreement than going to court or trial. It is faster and less stressful on parents and children.
Child custody and Parenting Time: Custody of their children is one of the most hotly contested issues when parents divorce. Divorcing parents and unmarried couples with children should try to consider what is best for their children, despite the differences they have with each other. It is possible for both parents to have an equal say in almost every child-rearing issue like where the children will live, who makes medical decisions and where they attend school.
Child support: Issues of child support are generally governed by law. The statutes set support guidelines based on income and other factors. However, our lawyers know how to work within the guidelines to help you obtain the best outcome. We will also help you enforce court orders if you are not receiving the support you deserve.
Division of Assets: We take the time and hire the best experts to value your marital property. Knowing which property is and is not part of the marital estate is crucial before making any decisions about dividing up assets.
Divorce: We realize that the divorce process is not easy. Our goal is to obtain the best result possible while being considerate of your time and your finances. With years of experience handling high-asset divorces, our lawyers will guide you through every step of the process, including post-decree modifications if needed at a later date.
Prenuptial Agreements: Unmarried persons who are planning to marry in Minnesota may enter into a Minnesota Prenuptial Agreement – with their prospective spouses before the date of the wedding, in order to allow each of the parties to determine, or perhaps limit, the rights that each party will have in the other party’s property, and perhaps in their income, in the event of death or divorce. It is best to have an attorney draft and review any agreement you make to ensure that it is enforceable under Minnesota law.
Postnuptial Agreements: Unlike a pre-nuptial agreement, you enter into a postnuptial agreement during the marriage. It is a contract between spouses regarding the division of assets, property, debt, spousal maintenance and other issues in the event of a divorce. Its purpose is to protect both parties and minimize disputes if a divorce were to happen.
Spousal Maintenance (Alimony): Most divorcing couples would like to maintain the standard of living they have enjoyed during the marriage. Whether you are paying or receiving alimony or support, we will advocate for your best interests.
