Obtaining an annulment under Minnesota laws


An annulment is a kind of legal dissolution of a marriage which, much like a divorce proceeding, essentially ends the marital union between two parties by declaring the marriage never took place. In Minnesota, annulling a marriage is the same as voiding a marriage. Couples who choose to annul their marriages essentially declare that the marriages never existed.

Divorce lawyers provide creative solutions for alimony payments


For couples everywhere, including Minnesota, divorce means uncoupling and then resolving a variety of issues. Some are purely emotional, and some are purely financial. Many, though, are both. For instance, a final divorce decree often requires that one spouse pay alimony or spousal support to the other. The spouse who must pay is often unhappy at having to pay anything at all and then vexed by the amount required. The spouse who receives may be similarly unhappy with the amount, believing the payer can afford to pay more.

How Thrift Savings Plan accounts are divided during divorce


The end of a marriage is more than just two people parting for good. It is also about splitting their property. Property division is an integral part of divorce in every state, including Minnesota. As part of that, retirement benefits may be divided by court order. These benefits can include federal Thrift Savings Plans.
