Types Of Family Law Matters

Some of the most common family law matters include:

  • Adoption
  • Divorce (contested, uncontested, collaborative)
  • Custody modifications and evaluations
  • Divorce mediation
  • Domestic abuse
  • Orders for Protection
  • Restraining orders

  • Cohabitation agreements
  • And more


Divorce is the most common family law matter and it has a lot of issues that surround it, especially when children are involved. There is also the fact that one spouse may make more money than the other, resulting in one to require spousal support from the spouse who makes the most money. Because of the many issues that can exist in a divorce, a focused and dedicated Mankato family law lawyer is required to handle the matter.

Even if the divorce is an uncontested one that is cut and dry with easy asset distribution and no children, an attorney is still needed to oversee the process and ensure that everything is carried out in a fair and balanced manner. Even if there are aspects that are not disputed, something might come about that both parties don’t agree on, resulting in a need for negotiations. It is always good to be prepared so that you can make it through the process and then move on with your new life.
