Enforcing child support can sometimes be a daunting task


Many children and their parents in Maple Grove, Minnesota, are recipients of child support.

Obama clarifies position on same-sex marriage equality


Although Minnesota is among the growing number of states that now allows same-sex marriages, this new form of legalized relationship has not yet been adopted by more than a dozen states.

Historically, when parents were in battles over the custody and support of children, Minnesota courts tended to side with mothers, or what legislators and judges believed to be the more natural caregiver.

This new reality is often acknowledged in child-custody and paternity cases.

How can a Domestic Asset Protection Trust help during divorce?

Divorces have the power not only to separate the family, but also to lead to a division of the finances.

Furthermore, a prenuptial agreement is often invalidated in court. Even when a prenuptial agreement is valid, having to pay a large sum in legal fees becomes a reality.
