Minnesota County Divorce Records

The Minnesota Divorce Courts are authorized legal bodies that have the power and the authority to try and hear all the divorce suits in the State and counties of Minnesota. The County courts in Minnesota hear pleas for the dissolution of marriage and in some states in the United States divorces are granted on the basis of fault grounds. No fault ground divorces are very easy to get and most of the divorces in the USA are based on this ground. The Minnesota Divorce Courts decide matters on alimony, child custody, child visitation, and property and debt distribution. Minnesota is an equitable distribution state and the parties to the suit get their marital property distributed in a fair and just way by the competent divorce court if they cannot come to a mutual agreement. When the Minnesota Divorce Courts divide the marital property they take the condition and the interests of the parties to the suit into consideration and then they divide the property accordingly.

Alimony in Minnesota is determined by a number of factors, namely:

  •     The nature of the past relations between the parties to the suit
  •     The duration of the marriage between the parties to the suit
  •     The employment status and ability of the parties to work
  •     The character and the condition of the parties to the divorce suit
  •     The age and the mental health of the parties to the suit
  •     The grounds for the divorce
  •     The ability of either party to the suit to pay

In the case of child custody the well being of the child is taken into account by the court of law. After divorce a major concern of the parents can be the acquisition of child custody rights. The main focus of child custody rights are the well being of the child, the parenting capacity, the psychological and developmental requirements of the child or children. Here the role of psychologists is very important as he or she can aid the couple on how to proceed with the child custody. Child Custody can be temporary custody or legal custody. Both the parents can decide temporary custody and they can reach a mutual agreement with regard to the child or children.

The legal custody of the child enables a parent or both the parents to make legal decisions for the child with regard to general welfare, education, religion and health. Legal custody of the child can be of two types. The first type is called sole legal custody where one parent has the exclusive right to make decisions of the child. Joint child custody allows both the parents to make decisions of the child and no parent has superior rights over the child.
