No-Fault Divorce | Minnesota No-Fault Divorce Information

May 26, 2016

Divorce Mediation MNMinnesota is known a “no-fault” divorce state.  The term “no-fault” means that the law does not require one member of a couple to prove the other violated the marriage contract to grant a divorce from the other.  While Minnesota is one of the states in our country that has a no-fault statute; not all states do.  Minnesota’s law makes finalizing a divorce easier in some ways because of the no-fault aspect of the law, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it is always simple.  If you are in the midst of a divorce or expect to be soon, partnering with a mediation team like Johnson Mediation can be extremely beneficial.  Johnson Mediation provides sound advice, empathic guidance, expertise about Minnesota law, and can help you find common ground with your ex-spouse as you move forward toward separate lives.

Getting Through A Minnesota Divorce

To make sure that you know your options when it comes to the world of divorce law, seeking Johnson Mediation’s experience and good counsel can provide you with reassurance, insight and clarity that is difficult to find.  Getting through a Minnesota divorce is difficult, working with Johnson Mediation, leading divorce mediators in the Minnesota area, makes it a bit easier.

Minnesota’s no-fault divorce law makes finalizing your divorce possible, maybe even easier in some ways, but the laws surrounding divorce are still complicated.  For example, if you are seeking a divorce from your spouse because your spouse was unfaithful, you will find that the law is written with arcane values in mind.  In Minnesota, the law defines adultery as when a woman has been unfaithful with a man who is not her husband.  That law does not address a man’s having a sexual relationship outside of his marriage, and it does not address the introduction of same-sex marriage, which is legal in Minnesota.  To work through these complications, you would do well to have an advocate on your side who knows the law and can help you interpret the occasional contradictions within the law.

Divorce Mediation Can Help You Move Forward

The term “no-fault divorce” may suggest that the process is simple, and to some extent that is true.  But other factors can influence the outcome of your divorce.  If one spouse has a drug or substance addiction, or a gambling addiction, or participates in other behaviors that risk the welfare of the couple’s minor children, the divorce outcome and settlement can take those behaviors into account, especially the well-being of children is in question.  Johnson Mediation can help balance Minnesota law with your very personal, unique and emotional situation and find divorce options that will benefit all involved.  For more information about Johnson Mediation’s divorce mediation services, call our team today at (952) 401-7599.
