Divorce & Family Law

Mankato and St. James Attorneys Serving Families Throughout Southern Minnesota

For many people, a divorce or other family law matter is the first time they've ever needed to work with an attorney. When you're in the midst of a family law case, you're facing not only a legal challenge, but an emotional, social, and financial one as well. It may feel as if your entire life is in disarray.

At Birkholz & Associates, we understand what you're going through, and we know how important your family is to you. We not only guide you through the often-complicated legal process, but do so in an efficient, cost-effective way to preserve your financial resources, and with the compassion and support you need at such a challenging time.

Our goal is the same as yours: to protect your well-being and that of your children, and make sure you have everything you need to build a brighter future after your family law dispute is resolved.

We offer divorce and family law services throughout Southern Minnesota.

Minnesota Divorce and Family Law Services

Whether your divorce is amicable or contentious, involving children or not, with many assets or few, you need a strong, objective advocate. Even divorces that start out cordial can turn hostile quickly. The person who was supposed to be at your side, and on your side, throughout life, is suddenly opposing you. It's hard to know what or whom to trust.

At Birkholz & Associates, we're here for you. We will evaluate your situation, help identify your priorities, and give you the information you need to make the right decisions. Most Minnesota divorces end not after a trial, but through negotiated settlement. We are skilled negotiators, helping to resolve your case favorably and quickly so that you can avoid the expense of trial. But if going to trial is the best way to protect your interests, we are also experienced litigators with a strong record in the courtroom, including numerous complex, multi-day trials.

Of course, family law encompasses much more than divorce. Our comprehensive family law services include:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Parenting Time
  • Parenting Plans
  • Child Support
  • Spousal Maintenance
  • Property Division
  • Prenuptial and Post-Nuptial Agreements
  • Domestic Abuse
  • Orders for Protection
  • Harassment Restraining Orders
  • Mediation
  • Post-Decree Motions
  • Appeals

And because family law disputes affect so many areas of your life, we are available to assist you with estate planning and real estate issues that arise after divorce, as well.
