Minnesota is an equitable distribution state. Property is not necessarily divided equally, but rather it is divided according to worth and in the interests of fairness. As a result, the person awarded the home may receive less physical property than the other spouse, with the goal being to reach an equitable settlement.
Division of marital property involves more than determining who receives the marital home and other large assets. It involves careful planning and consideration of your financial situation. All marital assets, including pensions, 401(k)s, retirement accounts and business funds are subject to division. Marital debt is also subject to division. Our firm will gather financial information about all property, including any hidden assets or those in foreign accounts.
Do You Have a Prenuptial Agreement?
The presence of a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement may directly impact the division of marital property. The agreements safeguard certain assets against division, and protect inheritances and trust funds for your children. Your attorney will review any existing agreements and use it to guide asset division negotiations.
