At Krenner Law LLC, one of my primary goals is for my clients to leave my office with more knowledge than they had when they arrived. By providing clear answers to their divorce-related questions and explaining the realities of divorce, I dispel myths and set reasonable expectations not only for the process itself but also for the future.
Common Divorce Misconceptions
When family law clients come to me, many have misconceptions about divorce. Here are some of the most common:
- My spouse and I agree on everything: In many cases, clients believe they have worked out all of the details of their divorces on their own and that they only need a lawyer to handle the paperwork. During their initial consultations, many realize how far this is from the truth. It is too easy to forget the division of intangible assets, such as 401(k)s and other savings or retirement plans. I help protect your future by ensuring every asset is valued and divided equitably.
- My divorce will be final in a month: The length of the divorce process in Minnesota varies significantly based on several factors. Those factors include the involvement of children, the length of the marriage, real estate ownership, court schedules and, the biggest influence of all, contention. It is likely that the more contentious your divorce, the longer the process will take.
- Litigation is my only option: Many clients believe they will never be able to reach agreements with their soon-to-be ex-spouses and litigation, with their attorneys at their sides, is their only option. Fortunately, their situations are often not as dire as they believe. Regardless of how bad your relationship currently feels, you may be able to pursue negotiations using alternative dispute resolution methods.
