Our Practice Areas
We can help you with your divorce, establishing paternity, custody, parenting time, and child support. When your financial or familial circumstances change, we can help you seek modification of your custody and child support obligations. When the other party refuses to comply with a court order, we can help you enforce that court order and hold the other party accountable.
If you are a victim of domestic violence or harassment then we can help you seek a restraining order to protect yourself or others around you. There are two types of restraining orders in Minnesota: (1) Orders for Protection and (2) Harassment Restraining Orders.
For Orders for Protections, the domestic abuse must be committed against a family or household member. Domestic abuse can mean physical harm, bodily injury, or assault; fear of imminent physical harm, bodily injury, or assault; or terroristic threats, criminal sexual conduct, or interference with an emergency call.
For Harassment Restraining Orders, you can file the petition against anyone (does not have to be a family or household member). Harassment can mean a single incident of sexual assault; stalking; distributing private information without permission; or repeated intrusive or unwanted acts, words, or gestures that result in an adverse effect on the safety, security, or privacy of another person; or targeted residential picketing.
It is important to plan ahead to protect your loved ones. Our office can help you prepare wills, Health Care Directives, Power of Attorneys, and set up Guardianship/Conservatorships.
We can help you petition for a family member to come to the United States, adjust their status and help with the naturalization process to become a United States Citizen. If you are a victim of a crime, we can help you file victim-based petitions such as the Violence Against Women's Act, U-Visa, or T-Visa.
It is illegal for an employer to discriminate against a job applicant or employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, transgender status, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. We can help you file a Charge of Discrimination against your employer with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and represent you at mediation.
If you have been injured in a car accident then you are entitled up to $20,000 in personal injury protection benefits that covers medical bills, lost wages, replacement services, and funeral expenses. We can help you resolve your car accident cases while you focus on recovering.
