Family Law

Compassionate, Experienced Divorce Attorney and Family Lawyers

Our attorneys practice family law in both North Dakota and Minnesota courts. Their practice areas of family law include:


Whether or not it is contested, we will ensure that your legal rights are protected throughout the divorce process.

Legal Separation

In a legal separation, the couple remains married after signing the separation papers, therefore it’s best to have solid legal counsel in this situation.


This provides you and your spouse the opportunity to discuss and settle the issues in your divorce without a costly and public court hearing.

Child Support

We can help you establish child support, modify an existing order, collect unpaid support or devise a payment plan if you are behind.

Child Custody and Visitation

We will help you avoid situations that might cost you time with your children and will fight for your rights as a parent.

Paternity Actions

These steps are typically taken to determine the biological father of a child, usually to facilitate support. Regardless of whether you are the mother or the probable father, we’re here to represent your rights.


Comprehensive legal services will help with a seamless adoption or guardianship process.

Parenting Investigations

As a neutral court designated party, we will make an unbiased assessment of a family situation based on collected facts. We will then file a report making recommendations to solve any issues that may currently not be serving the best interests of the child(ren).

Spousal Support

Designed to offer financial assistance to a spouse who earns less or has stayed home to raise children or manage the household, spousal support will help them transition to single life until such time as they become self-supporting or remarry.

Pre and Postnuptial Agreements

While nearly everyone goes into a marriage hoping it will last, statistics prove that over half don’t. Pre- and postnuptial agreements address property division and spousal maintenance should the relationship end.

Child Support Service Department

We’ll help you understand your rights and represent you as you work with the Child Support Service Department to facilitate child support payments.

Domestic Violence Restraining Order

Domestic violence impacts the entire family. Our firm represents victims of domestic abuse and can help you obtain a restraining order to keep the alleged abuser from having contact with you.

Limited Scope Representation

By unbundling our legal services, our clients are able to get legal assistance for a single area of a broader case.
