Divorce And Family Law

Helping Divorce Clients As A Compassionate Attorney

Divorce is very much a quality of life issue, and the decisions you make about ending it can be absolutely the most profound life choices you’ll ever make. But there are many other issues to be decided along the way: What do we do with the kids? What do I do after divorce? Who gets the house? How to do we split the property? Who pays the bill? James D. Capra Inc. has been helping families with such issues throughout Minnesota for over 30 years.

The Most Common Concerns: Custody And Property

The court is rarely a pleasant experience for anyone. In my 30 years of practice, my office has discovered that there are most definitely things you can do to minimize the time, the anguish and of course the financial consequences of ending your marriage. Most divorces settle prior to trial, but starting the divorce process can be intimidating and overwhelming. You don’t have to go through it alone.

The division of the assets that you and your spouse worked together to acquire and maintain has a very direct effect on your standard of living after the divorce. It is critical that you have an experienced and knowledgeable guide to help you through the process. The best way to understand how Minnesota’s divorce laws affect your situation is to sit down with an experienced family law attorney.

There are two types of child custody: legal custody and physical custody. Legal custody refers to the right to determine the child’s upbringing. This includes decisions like education, health care and religious training. Joint legal custody means that both parents contribute to making these decisions. Physical custody refers to the residence, daily care and control of the child. Minnesota courts typically lean toward shared legal custody as it is what is usually in the best interest of the child.
