Keeping You Focused on Your Divorce Goals
Divorce can be stressful under any circumstances, but especially when there are financial or custody disputes between the spouses that cannot be resolved amicably. An experienced litigator can guide you through the divorce process with a focus on your desired outcomes.
I'm Minneapolis attorney Lee Watson, and I use my decades of divorce litigation experience to help clients pursue fair results. To discuss your case with an experienced Minnesota trial lawyer, contact me today.
Addressing Complex Issues of Property and Finances
I handle divorce litigation on behalf of my own clients and in conjunction with other family law attorneys who need an experienced litigator on their team. I have decades of experience helping clients protect their interests while resolving issues such as:
- Property division: I understand the applicable legal standards for equitable distribution of marital assets in debts in Minnesota. I will carefully document the evidence in support of a fair and beneficial outcome, whether or not you have a premarital agreement.
- Spousal maintenance (alimony): This is awarded in some — but not all — divorce cases in Minnesota. I will advocate for an appropriate award in this area.
- Child support: If you have minor children, one or both parents will likely be required to contribute to child support, which will require accurately documenting each parent's income.
I am fully prepared to represent you in complex divorce litigation if necessary. My approach to litigation is based on exhaustive research and in-depth knowledge of not only the written law but also the reality of how it is commonly applied in the Minnesota courts.
Handling Post-Divorce Modification and Enforcement
In addition to representing clients in divorce litigation, I also handle post-decree disputes over issues such as spousal maintenance (formerly referred to as alimony) modification and enforcement. These issues are becoming more and more prominent as rapid changes in the economy affect people's earning capacities.
If you are involved in any family law dispute that is likely to require litigation in order to reach a fair resolution, don't hesitate to contact me to discuss how I can help you protect your rights.
