What if we both want to get divorced?

Often times, people think of divorce as one spouse wanting to get out of a marriage, and the other spouse not wanting to get out of the marriage. Then, one spouse serves the other spouse with a petition and commences the process. However, there are other situations where both spouses have tried to work out the differences that have arisen and have decided they both want a divorce. In these other situations, especially when there is little or no dispute about division of property or even custody of the children, a joint petition may be the most cost effective, most expedient, and frankly least emotionally taxing route to obtaining a divorce. Joint petition forms are available at www.mncourts.gov. Upon reviewing the forms, if you have any questions or wish to discuss further, we’re happy to help.
